The sacai x Nike Blazer Mid is without a doubt of the most delayed sneakers in recent memory. Whatever the reason of the hold up may be, the hotly anticipated sneaker was originally supposed to release sometime in Spring 2019, and as we’re about to approach the winter months, they have yet to launch. With all that said, now we know when exactly the shoes will drop – if they aren’t delayed again, that is.
The brainchild of style icon Chitose Abe, the sacai x Nike Blazer Mid will release in two flavours, namely ‘Black‘ and ‘White‘. Taking on the classic Blazer Mid silhouette, everything has been doubled up for a deliciously deconstructed aesthetic.
From the Swooshes to the tongues all the way to the midsoles, this shoe will have you seeing double. Two pairs of laces also tie the shoe together, while a duo of pull tabs make their way to the heel for twice the convenience, finalising the avant garde look that the visionary fashion designer is renowned for.
Now for that all-important release date. According to sacai’s official Instagram account, the sacai x Nike Blazer Mid will drop at the sacai Aoyama flagship and their online store on October 8th, with a wider release scheduled for October 10th. This includes Nike, Selfridges, Dover Street Market, as well as the SNKRS app. One of the hottest sneakers of the year, for your best chance to cop make sure you follow @thesolesupplier and @thesolerestocks over on Twitter, and we’ll keep you up to date!
