Virgil Abloh was pictured celebrating the closing moments of his Michael Jackson influenced Fall/Winter 2019 presentation at Paris Fashion Week in a sleek pair of croc-skin sneakers.

On closer inspection, eagle eyed fans noticed that the flourishing designer had chosen this pivotal moment with Louis Vuitton to simultaneously debut Off-White’s highly anticipated collaboration with Japanese label BAPE.

The reinvented Bapesta is decorated in black reptilian leather, while BAPE STA and Off-White text branding provides contrast in bright white.

BAPE’s low-top silhouette is also complete with a matching chunky midsole and “SHOELACES” typography to create a distinctly Off-White aesthetic.
