Virgil Abloh has contributed to Deviation’s ongoing raffle to raise funds for Black Lives Matter by putting up a signed pair of his yet-to-be-released Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 4 “Sail” for auction on the music collective’s eBay page.
In a post to Instagram, Abloh wrote: “got together with some friends, each of us contributing to the sustained support of the Black Lives Matter cause and I’m auctioning an unreleased signed pair of these (with your name not mine per se).” The winning bid (currently bidding has exceeded $17,000) will get to choose the size and name the sneakers are signed with.

This charitable donation follows backlash Abloh received when Instagram users thought the Louis Vuitton head had “only” donated $50, though Abloh has since cleared that up and revealed that his donations far exceed the $50 shared to his Instagram story several weeks ago.
