The sacai x Nike LDWaffle turned the industry completely on its head when it was unveiled earlier this year. Taking the idea of the hybrid sneaker to an entirely new level, it's a lesson in unique footwear design and is one of the most valuable collaborations of 2019. As we embark on a new year, we're now taking a sneak peek at Chitose Abe's next release, and we're beyond hyped!
First previewed at their Paris Fashion Week runway show back in summer, the "Black" takes the crazy silhouette and tones it down just a little bit. Gone are the contrasting tones in favour of a tonal palette that's a lot more clean and versatile. With that said, the usual hybrid madness has been retained, with double the Swooshes, midsoles, tongues, and laces.
In terms of materials, it's made from a premium combination of nylon, suede, and leather, and it'll also drop alongside a "Triple White" version too, so if you want something for next summer then sacai has got your back.
According Alec Levillain, the sacai x Nike LDWaffle "Black" will drop between March and April next year. This has yet to be officially confirmed, so make sure you keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for more info as it develops!
