The Most Wanted Off-White Sneakers
Off-White Arrow Sneakers
Detailed with Virgil Abloh's distinctive zip-tie in a bright-orange hue and set on a striped rubber sole, Off-White’s Arrow sneakers are anything but understated. The low-top silhouette is crafted from a choice of white or black canvas, and features an easy-to-adjust lace fastening. Complete with an instantly recognizable arrow logo, orange panel and the brand’s address stamped along the upper, these sneakers prove Off-White never comes up short on progressive, directional style.
Off-White X Nike Waffle Racer Sneakers
The Nike and Off-White partnership became one of the most hyped collaborations when they first announced their OG ‘The Ten’ pack back in 2017, and the latest releases remain just as popular. The long-awaited Off-White x Nike Waffle Racer sneakers come in a range of colorways, some in limited-edition quantities, and feature a unique lacing system and soft rubber spikes at the sole. You’ll find a Nike ‘swoosh’ at one side, and Off-White’s signature green zip-tie attached.
Off-White HG Runner Sneakers
Reworking the classic running shoe silhouette with all the urban, streetwear edge we’ve come to expect from the label, these HG Runner sneakers are made in Italy from a combination of premium fabrics. Set on a gripped rubber sole, the low-top design is elevated with a leather arrow logo and the all-important orange zip tie. A lace-up fastening means it can be customized for a tighter fit.

How To Care For Your Off-White Sneakers
You can use a damp cloth to wipe away any superficial marks from any leather or suede Off-White sneakers. For tougher stains, we would advise applying a specialist suede or leather cleaner with a wet shoe brush. For any delicate or hard to reach areas, a toothbrush can be used to apply the cleaner. Wipe over with a dry cloth to finish.
Avoid cleaning your Off-White sneakers in the washing machine, or drying in the tumble dryer, as the spinning motion and heat can cause damage and discoloration.
