Virgil Abloh’s entire OFF-WHITE x Nike footwear collection is built on a deconstructed DIY theme, so it comes as no surprise that those lucky enough to cop a pair are putting their own spin on the sneakers.
We’ve seen custom OFF-WHITE Air Jordans and Blazer Mids to name a few, but the silhouette that stands out as the most customizable sneaker is one that hasn’t officially been released yet: the OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Presto in white, which is due on August 3. In fact, we would go as far as to call it the customizable shoe of the summer.
The sneaker is triple-white, which obviously lends itself to customization, much in the way a blank canvas looks to an artist. In addition, the official OFF-WHITE Instagram page kicked things off by reposting a custom by Massimo Taylor of Berlin retailer Solebox and urging anyone who gets a pair to try their hands at a tie-dye custom.
just dye it
Of course, it didn’t take long for the first tie-dye custom to pop up on Instagram, and the proud owner was none other than John Mayer. Abloh posted his exchange of texts with the singer-songwriter on Instagram, writing that Mayer was “winning the #readymadeoffwhite thing.”

Mayer’s custom OFF-WHITE Air Prestos were modified by Online Ceramics, which is known for its DIY streetwear pieces.
