A partnership for the history books, Chitose Abe’s sacai and sportswear giant Nike have proven themselves to be a force to be reckoned with when they collaborate. Kicking off their journey with the infamous laceless Nike Dunk and Air Max 90 iterations back in 2015, the duo found their feet in 2019 with the launch of the legendary sacai x Nike LDWaffle. A sacai Blazer followed suit and more Waffle designs have since landed, with the latest being the highly sought-after sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle pack. Landing in two coveted colourways, this might just be the best design to come out of the sacai series yet, so let’s take a closer look.
Arriving in a white and sail colourway, along with a black and gum colour scheme, the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle is designed to merge the past and future of Nike Running. Fusing the iconic Nike Vaporfly with 1983’s Pegasus, this streamlined silhouette is elevated with the kind of details only sacai can create. The Japanese-born brand’s signature “shelf” heel adds a 3D vibe, while stacked details also feature on the tongue and sole. Nike’s world-famous Swoosh logo comes in a thinner-than-usual finish, while a unique textured tread ensures grip and optimised comfort.
Selling out in seconds upon release, the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle pack has already secured its place as a crowd-favourite. Now available at Laced, add this coveted kick to your collection and reserve them for special occasions – because these are made to impress.
