Off-White Partners With Nike on Soccer Kits for a Good Cause in Paris
The Paris-based soccer team that goes by the name Melting Passes is made up of young guys whose lives outside the field are the opposite of enviable. They are foreign minors arriving from West African countries who have lost or left behind family members and usually have no security or support system in France. But when they showed up to one of their usual matches two weeks ago, they projected the look of world-class players. Thanks to a series of serendipitous interactions that essentially confirm the six-degrees-of-separation theory, the Melting Passes team has been outfitted with uniforms designed by Virgil Abloh that boast the imprimatur of both his brand, Off-White, as well as Nike.
