Editor's Notes: Best practices for when you hear there's a new sacai x Nike Blazer Low scheduled to release? Mark your calendars, set all of the alarms and reminders, scope out all possible raffles, and prepare to take an L. Hey – at least you tried.
At this point, I think it's fair to say that sacai doesn't miss when it comes to remixing classic Nike sneaker silhouettes. Chitose Abe has seemingly mastered the art of sending sneakerheads into a frenzy, building an impressive portfolio on the secondary market with the LD Waffle, recent VaporWaffle, and, of course, the Blazer Low.
Over the past year (just shy of a year, for accuracy's sake), we've seen several iterations of the sacai Blazer Low touch down with a staggered release.
Last summer, the duo ushered in a seasonally appropriate palette of white, orange, and yellow to set the collaborative silhouette into motion. Not long after, two additional styles – "British Tan" and "Iron Grey" – followed, setting the stage for the arrival of a threeway with KAWS, providing a hearty dose of color.
Although things have gone a little quiet in recent months, before we wrapped up 2021 our attention was drawn to a leaked colorway – a colorway that is finally making its way to market.
A stark contrast to the highly saturated hues adopted by KAWS, this version is Wimbledon-friendly, thanks to its clean white uppers. The almost all-white finish is broken up with subtle touches of off-white and beige at the midfoot.
There's no doubting that these are a solid summer pair – which means it's unlikely they'll be hanging around for long.
