UPDATE: A sacai representative has confirmed the sneaker will be named the Vapor Waffle, rather than the Vapor Pegasus as previously stated.
sacai has teased its latest collaboration with Nike at Paris Fashion Week.
The Chitose Abe-helmed brand sent a sportswear-influenced model, named the Vapor Pegasus, down the runway at its Saturday lunchtime FW20 show. As we can see in the photos, the design MO is not entirely removed from last year’s red-hot LDWaffle, which had everyone seeing double. It’s a pretty experimental, off-center look — quite literally — as the outsole appears to be slightly skewed at the toe tip. Optioned in differing two-tone colorways, a rather hefty midsole completes the look.
As well as the LDWaffle, which sold out in four different colorways and has appeared on sneaker re-sell websites for exorbitant sums, the pair also crafted a slightly less popular Blazer Mid. Expect this collab to be one of the biggest of the year.
More details to follow.
