When we first spotted the sacai x Nike LDWaffle Black Nylon at Paris Fashion Week last summer, it was love at first sight. The sequel to Chitose Abe's highly coveted hybrid silhouette that she debuted last year, this is, hands down, the most versatile of the bunch, and it could also be the most luxurious as well. Like what you hear? Then read on to find out everything that there is to know about the Black Nylon!
Boasting an ultra clean black and white makeup that'll work with any fit, the Black Nylon is decked out in suede and leather with a nylon base that's a departure from 2019's releases. A fusion between the classic LDV and Waffle, Abe takes this literally by adding both Swooshes, tongues, and midsoles together, resulting in a sneaker that is unlike anything else out there.
Another change that's worth highlighting is the revamped lacing system that replaces the signature flat style laces with a pair of smooth ribbons. While this may seem like an odd choice at first, it aligns with the Japanese style icon's androgynous aesthetic. What's more, you can change them out if you don't like them, so it's no bid deal!
Releasing alongside an all white iteration, the sacai x Nike LDWaffle Black Nylon is set to be a holy grail, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled and we'll keep you updated!
