Burton Auctioning Snowboards Designed By The Late Virgil Abloh

By

A collection of Burton snowboards, boots, and bindings, all designed by the late designer Virgil Abloh, will be auctioned on Tuesday, March 15th. The collection has been in the works for two years, and all donations through the auction will go to the Abloh “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund. On March 22nd, Burton will release more snowboards, boots, and bindings on their website.

“In addition to being a world-famous designer, DJ, and creator, Virgil Abloh was also a rider. Before his passing, Virgil contacted us to collaborate on a collection of boots, bindings, and boards rooted in diversity and inclusivity. On March 22nd, we’ll share his vision with the rest of the world.” Burton on Instagram

On top of the auction, Burton has pledged to donate $300,000 over three years to increase BIPOC representation in snowboarding. The auction, which will begin at 12 P.M. ET, can be found here. Bids begin at $1,977, an homage to Burton’s founding.

More information on Abloh’s connection to Burton and the snowboarding world, can be read about on the Burton blog.
