sacai debuted its new Nike sneaker collab on the SS19 runway in Paris, designer Chitose Abe balancing ideas of stability and betrayal to create something unexpected. This is where the doubled-up elements come into play, with double Swooshes, laces, and tongues. The LDWaffle also features an elongated midsole.
So far, only two of five colorways of the LDWaffle are scheduled for release on May 16 in Europe, with the two Blazer Mids dropping on May 30. The other three LDWaffle colorways could be seeing a FW19 release, although that has yet to be confirmed by Nike. See below for the retailers that will be carrying the collab.
