We couldn't put it better than Woody at Sneaker Freaker
The news that @virgilabloh passed away overnight after losing his battle with cancer was a crushing and unexpected blow. Like many, I’d heard whispers following his sabbatical several years ago, but from afar he seemed rejuvenated and once again working impossible hours as he hatched plans, music and art all over the globe. I guess we now know why Virgil was always hellbent on moving at speed.
To mark Virgil’s untimely passing, we have decided to create a tribute pair of sneakers and the proceeds will go to cancer research. Only two pairs will be sold.
Vale to the late, great, Virgil Abloh. Just 41-years-old, but what an amazing and enduring creative legacy he leaves behind across so many disciplines. More importantly, he dragged the Street to the front doors of the European establishment and kicked them in, busting barriers that had previously excluded Black designers from the highest echelons.
On behalf of everyone at Sneaker Freaker, our condolences.
Rest in peace.
