Together with the launch of his newest website Public Domain, designer Virgil Abloh also releases something we’ve all been waiting for: a fresh set of Nike x Off-White collab sneakers. And from the looks of it, seven trainers are in line to be revealed for the coming season.

The Public Domain website

For the new website, the multi-hyphenate Abloh drops 40gb of working files from the Nike x Off-White collaborations. From Photoshop files to design illustrations, Public Domain is a haven for all creatives and designers wanting a peek into the mind of Abloh’s world.

On Twitter, rumors abound that Abloh will soon be converting his infamous “The Ten” collection—a collective unit of 10 re-imagined Nike footwear silhouettes by the designer himself—into “The 20.” For his original lineup, the designer reconstructed the Air Jordan 1, Air Max 90, Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax, and Blazer Mid.

“Most of the creative decisions were made in the first three hours, while actual design and iteration took two to three days,” reveals Abloh on the Nike site. “The Jordan I was done in one design session. I work in a very like dream-like state. I see it, and it’s done.”

It seems we can all just wait for the official announcement from Virgil Abloh himself or wait for the actual countdown set on the website to expire in just a few hours as of this writing.
