Debuting at sacai’s SS19 runway show in Paris in June 2018 the highly anticipated Nike x sacai LDWaffle and Blazer Mid are finally set for release. Sacai designer Chitose Abe employs her signature ethos on the Nike x sacai LDWaffle by pulling two heritage Nike silhouettes into a single hybrid form. The “betrayal” elements of this exercise include doubled elements, like the Swoosh and tongue, as well as elongated midsoles on the LDWaffle and extended midsole foxing on the Blazer. Abe delivers “stability” through the familiar retro color scheme.
The Nike x sacai LDWaffle and Nike x sacai Blazer Mid release globally on May 16 and May 30, respectively, at select Nike retailers including HAVEN.
