The Second Abloh Invitational Event Photos

We went back to Miami's Lot 11 to celebrate the life of Virgil Abloh. The team at Architecture got a score of top riders to roll through. From stars like Ishod Wair, Leo Baker, Nicole Hause, Alexis Sablone and Mason Silva to the legends Eric Koston and Kareem Campbell, you name it and they were probably there. DJ DZA spun the ones-and-twos while Neckface held it down on the mic and dropped cash for the heavy-hitting locals. Get a glimpse of the glory below. Thank you, Nike SB and Andrew Skateshop for all the help. —Atiba
