Upon learning of the upcoming Off-White x Nike releases, Virgil Abloh fans were elated. After displaying over one hundred Off-White iterations of the Swoosh during Miami Art Week, it became more evident what served as inspirations for Terra Forma. The Terra Forma remains somewhat of a mystery to sneakerheads, with the new Off-White x Nike Air Terra Forma Wheat silhouette set for release in December in the Wheat and White colourways.

The Terra Forma has a tongue that protrudes significantly above the rest of the shoe, which extends its silhouette. This was Virgil Abloh's way of paying homage to the Jordan family of sneakers; The tongue is a constantly changing detail throughout the Jordan line- just look at how it differs between Air Jordan 1 and Air Joran 15. On Terra Forma, the shape of the tongue's wing and feathering details allude to design language associated with "flight, " making Air Jordans so unique and sought-after.

Another interesting feature of the shoe is the multicolour marbling effect on around the air unit. The colours here are similar to those found in abstract paintings, which resemble climbing holds and mirror the rugged outdoor theme of shoes like these. Even Virgil, who was heavily influenced by this trend when creating these shoes, can be seen pictured with Drake wearing matching Arc'teryx LEAF jackets or at an unofficial Off-White show from 2020 that focused on this aesthetic--which he fully embraced. Tera Forming allowed him to explore his love for ACG by digging into the archives for obscure reference points, such as the Traverse-- a model still remains elusive despite the large number of fan pages surrounding Nike's division.

This isn't Off-White's first collab with Nike to feature spikes, which were first adopted into the Terra Kiger 5, resulting in mixed reviews upon its release. This is Virgil tapping into his love for Nike Performance and how he champions their innovative technology once again. Unlike the shoes that were designed for The Ten Collection, there is no existing audience or fanbase for this silhouette since Virgil designed it from scratch. However, the Off-White x Nike Terraa is packed with design features and storytelling - something we have come to expect from Virgil's creations.
