Last month, auction house Sotheby’s announced it had teamed up with Nike and Louis Vuitton to auction 200 exclusive pairs of their Air Force 1 collaboration, designed by the late designer Virgil Abloh. And as were his wishes, all proceeds will go to his “Post Modern” Scholarship Fund, which helps up-and-coming designers across different industries.

Featuring Louis Vuitton’s traditional brown motif and monogram pattern, this particular Nike Air Force 1 won’t be sold outside of the Sotheby’s auction.
