Set to be one of the most coveted releases of 2019, sacai's collaboration with Nike has not come without its hiccups. Now, after a delayed European release of the long-anticipated double-everything LD Waffle in green and blue (which promptly sold out), both these and the "Snow Beach" and "Legend Blue" Blazers just received their first wider US release today, May 30. If you took an L on this most fashion-forward of sneaker collaborations, however, all four initial releases can now be acquired at StockX.

First debuted in sacai's SS19 Paris runway show, designer Chitose Abe's doubled-up Swooshes, laces, and tongues are said to represent the ideas of stability and betrayal, for something unexpected. The Blazer mid combines the Nike Dunk and Blazer, with all the aforementioned doubles plus Nike x Sacai co-branding on the heel tab, while the LD Waffle, which comes in bright green/yellow/orange and blue/red/yellow colorways boasts an interesting elongated midsole.

The May drops mark only a first batch of more sacai x Nike output to come this year, with additional colorways penciled for later in 2019. Like hyped Japanese fashion collaborations with the Swoosh of the past, such as UNDERCOVER's Nike React Element 87, upcoming raffles for the Blazers are sure to come with very limited stock, which goes some way to explaining a premium mark-up.
