Virgil Abloh and Nike launched their Sail AJ4 as a shoe designed for women, giving them exclusive access to buy a pair via the SNKRS app. Not surprisingly, the $200 sneaker sold out in seconds – and now it’s reselling for as much as $4,200, depending on the size.
With its high-end materials, deconstructed aesthetic, beige-esque finish, and tonal Off-White zip-tie and shoelaces, Abloh’s Sail take on the iconic Jordan 4 is without a doubt one of the best women’s sneakers of all time. It’s so good that even dudes like me need to be wearing it.
There are rumors that we could see a men’s version of the shoe in the near future, but until Nike, Off-White, or Abloh make it official, your only bet at getting your hands (and feet) on the pair will be through apps like GOAT.
And if you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on this one pair of sneakers, the great thing is that Nike and Off-White have plenty of other (less expensive) options to choose from – including “The 50” collection of Dunk Lows.
