Chitose Abe is going all out for 2021. With high heat collaborations set to drop later this year, she's kicking the spring and summer season off with the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle Sail Gum - and we're getting our best look yet! No doubt one of the cleanest creps the Japanese fashion designers has ever released, these are going to be insanely popular as soon as the warmer months come around!
Reworking the usual Flyknit construction in favour of a more versatile nylon one, the "Sail" is painted in a "Triple White" colourway while light grey suede panels grace the lacing system and toebox. Smooth leather gently wraps around the heel, where you'll also find a small pull tab for added convenience.
As with all sacai x Nike collaborations, deconstruction plays a massive role here. From the lateral side Swooshes to the tongue up top and the Waffle midsole underfoot, everything has been completely doubled up for a look that is quite literally twice as nice. This is unlike anything else out there and is sure to turn heads for years to come.
Co-branded detailing features throughout the Nike shoe, and to finish off the collaboration, Abe has lined the bottom with a healthy dose of gum rubber for durable traction with every step. This adds a lovely bit of contrast to the otherwise understated model.
Expected to drop alongside the "Off-Noir", the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle "Sail Gum" is a definite must-have, so make sure you keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for your best chance to cop! Let us know what you think of this clean cut colourway, and in related news, the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle "Dark Iris" and "Sesame" finally have release dates!
