Off-White™, under the creative guidance of Ib Kamara, is venturing into new territory with the introduction of “The Baller,” its first-ever basketball shoe. This innovative design draws inspiration directly from the basketball itself, featuring orange pebbled leather with black striping to mimic the ball’s texture. The shoe showcases Off-White™’s signature flair with bold branding, including phrases like “AUTOGRAPH HERE” and “FOR ANKLE BREAKERS ONLY,” adding a playful yet edgy touch to the design.

“The Baller” was first teased by Kamara on Instagram and made its debut during the Fall/Winter 2024–25 “Black by Popular Demand” runway show. The sneaker has sparked interest for its unique aesthetic, combining elements of sport and high fashion. While it’s clear that “The Baller” carries the streetball vibe of the early 2000s, it’s yet to be confirmed if these shoes are intended for performance or purely as a fashion statement.
