Nike Off-White x Air Force 1 Low – University Gold Overview:
The Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low “University Gold” is a positively blinding colorway of Nike’s retro basketball and lifestyle shoe created in collaboration with Off-White and Virgil Abloh. Synchronizing with the opening of Abloh’s “Figures of Speech” exhibit at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art in the Summer of 2021, the Off-White-designed “University Gold” colorway features a predominately monochromatic yellow construction.
This sneaker is a collaboration between Nike and Virgil Abloh’s Off-White label. Abloh was a renowned fashion designer who died in 2021. He was known for his innovative designs that often blurred the lines between fashion and art.
The perforated toe, mid-panel, collar, and heel are all dressed in University Gold leather. Contrast stitching borders the metallic silver Swoosh logo found on either side of the shoe and tonal “Nike Air” embroidery appears on the heel. In signature Off-White fashion, the Air Force 1’s nylon tongue tag has been repositioned to the side of the University Gold nylon tongue for an abstract, “do-it-yourself” look.
A yellow plastic zip-tie hangs from the tonal laces. Black “Air” text is printed above the tonal “Air” branding on the lateral side of the University Gold-colored rubber midsole.

The Air Force 1 Low Off White – University Gold was released in July of 2021 in limited quantities. As a result, the sneaker is difficult to find. However, there are a few retailers that still have pairs in stock. You can also try to find a pair on the secondary market, such as Sneaker Double.
