Although only going live in the second half of last year, WOOVIN has already seen some of the rarest and most sought-after sneakers to date listed on the site. Grails, as they are often called, are shoes that would stand atop the rest of your collection. They’re the shoes you save up for and track down years after its release, so here are five of the best grails available right now on our platform.
Jordan 1 Retro High Dior
Released in 2020, this Jordan 1 Retro High Dior was released in collaboration with designer brand Dior alongside a low-top pair, retailing for $2000, and $1500 respectively. Thanks to its high-end materials and only 8,000 pairs of the model being available to the public, this is the most expensive shoe on the list. And perhaps the most famous one too, as its release made mainstream news.
Nike Air Yeezy 2 Solar Red
Before Kanye West’s saga with Adidas and recent comments, he worked with Nike from 2009 to 2014 to make the Nike Air Yeezy line. He released two models, the latter of which features a unique silhouette and a range of materials. A cross between West’s designer taste and love of basketball sneakers, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 Solar Red are available on WOOVIN now.
Louis Vuitton Nike Air Force 1 Low by Virgil Abloh White Green
The only shoe on this list to release last year, the Louis Vuitton Nike Air Force 1 Low by Virgil Abloh White Green shares a special place in fans’ hearts, as it was one of Abloh’s last projects before his untimely death. But it was also a one-of-a-kind collaboration between two giant, yet polar opposite fashion brands. Such a collab is a key part of Virgil Abloh’s legacy, who worked extensively with both brands. And so, as well as its limited release and materials, it’s quickly become a grail for many fans of the designer.
Jordan 1 Retro High Off-White Chicago
Another Virgil Abloh creation. When Abloh released his first collection of shoes with Nike in 2017, named “The Ten,” his reworked Jordan 1 Retro High Off-White Chicago was the standout model. Although it has since been released in several colorways, the classic Chicago colorway remains the most popular due to its classic Bulls colors and homage to the Air Jordan line with a high-fashion twist.
Nike SB Dunk Low Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Dunky (F&F Packaging)
Ending this list is the hilarious and unexpected collaboration between ice cream brand Ben & Jerry’s and Nike. The Nike SB Dunk Low Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Dunky (F&F Packaging) features faux cow fur on the upper and a dripping Nike swoosh, taking Nike back to the 2000s when the SB Dunk would often be used for their more outlandish ideas. More specifically though, you can get the friends and family pair on WOOVIN which, as well as being much more limited, came with an ice cream tub-inspired box, an extra piece of memorabilia for avid collectors.
