This is it chief. Regarded by many sneakerheads as one of the most hyped collaborations of the year, the sacai x Nike LDV Waffle and Blazer Mid collection has been delayed more times than any other release in recent memory.
Marking Chitose Abe’s latest sneaker, the sacai x Nike LDV Waffle and Blazer Mid collection takes hybrids to a whole other level. Normally, brands would do a simple sole-swap for a release like this, but the legendary Japanese designer has doubled up on everything. From the Swooshes to the laces, all the way to the midsoles, there’s two of everything here so it’s twice as nice.
Not only will we be getting the previously announced ‘Green Gusto‘ and ‘Varsity Blue‘ colourways for the LDV Waffle, three other makeups will also debut, including two monochrome iterations and an eye-catching green and pink version. Meanwhile, the Blazer Mid will be dropping in the ‘Varsity Maize‘ and ‘Legend Blue‘ hues that we caught a glimpse of at the end of last year.
Now, if you’re planning to cop any of these shoes, you have to listen up. The sacai x Nike LDV Waffle and sacai x Nike Blazer Mid is set to drop globally on May 16th and May 30th, respectively, at Nike and the following retailers: A Ma Maniére, Antonia, Antonioli, BSTN, Bodega, Citadium, Footpatrol, HAVEN, Hirshleifers, Joyce, Juice, KITH, KM20, Lust, Maxfield LA, Naked, Nike SNKRS, Notre, One Block Down, Sacai Tokyo, Selfridges, Shinzo Paris, Shoe Gallery, Slam Jam, Sneaker Politics, Sneakersnstuff, Social Status, Solebox, Starcow, Tsum Moscow, UNDEFEATED.
