Sacai x Nike VaporWaffle is releasing this Summer
Lucky for us, Chitose Abe teamed with Nike once again — this time, preparing to expand her design philosophy with the upcoming VaporWaffle.
The iconic Japanese high fashion label sacai fused two iconic Nike shoes for a hybrid, double-themed design and the result is this dope silhouette and must-have colorway.
Speaking of that, there have been comments about the VaporWaffle being a distant cousin of the Balenciaga Triple S. What are your thoughts on Sacaiciaga?
We kinda see the parallel, but these are original enough on their own.
This special edition silhouette combines cream suedes and matching grids, complemented by light blues underneath at the inner layer — as well as bold red tones at both the heel tab and tongue branding.
The upper melds elements of two high-performance Nike Running pieces, creating an extremely complex layered structure that’s been accented by double midfoot Swooshes, dual tongue tags, stacked printed branding, and intertwined laces. Elevating the shoe is a layered sole unit defined by an aggressive lip at the heel of the shoe.
Its exact price & release date are still a mystery, but we'll keep both eyes on that 👀.
