Canada's very own HAVEN is kicking off February in double-stacked fashion with the launch of the new sacai x Nike VaporWaffle.
Early cops and sneak peeks have been floating around the sneaker net for what seems like forever, with no confirmed release details on the horizon until now. Before the saving grace of HAVEN, sneaker-connects and resale platforms like StockX have been the only sources for copping.
A year after its expected release, the wait is over for the gum-soled VaporWaffle.
Approached with neutral colorways of Black and Sail, the VaporWaffle makes a bold re-introduction with its fresh gum outsole, unlike previous takes featuring rubber soles.
Cozy mesh and smooth-to-touch suede bond together on the upper, while a stacked midsole makes an unconventional statement below.
The duo's distinguishable double-take details then round off the shoe. Ditching the double Swoosh this go-around, the tongue and laces get the job done with — might I say — "two times the fun."
The Chitose Abe-led label is fresh off the runway as the brand recently unveiled its FW22 collection, which included first looks at a Nike Cortez collaboration.
If you aren't a Canadian resident, don't worry. The streets are saying this VaporWaffle will see a global release in February. Stay tuned as we uncover more details.
