Although a majority of Virgil Abloh’s work was mostly tied to the sneaker and fashion spaces, the late designer wasn’t afraid to push the boundaries.
One evidence of that is this collaborative Virgil Abloh x Russell Winfield x Ride Algorythm snowboard arriving soon. Abloh’s latest project was designed in collaboration with pro snowboarder Russell Winfield to create a special version of Ride’s Algorythm snowboard.
“Through snowboarding, I was blessed to build a friendship with the superpower who was Virgil Abloh,” Winfield said. “Virgil and I shared the same passion for snowboarding and growing the culture, I’m very excited to share this project he and I had been working on before his passing.”
The Virgil Abloh x Russell Winfield x Ride Algorythm snowboard will be released on Feb. 2 at Ridesnowboards.com and at select snowboard shops. Sales from the board will benefit Hoods to Woods, a mentoring nonprofit in Brooklyn that introduces teens to the outdoors through snowboarding, as well as Abloh’s “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund.
Sneaker boutique Sneaker Politics is also giving a lucky fan a chance to win one of the limited boards via an Instagram contest. To enter, fans will need to follow @Sneakerpolitics, @Ridesnowboards, and @Misterwinfield on Instagram as well as like and tag a friend in the comments of the post below.
