It brought down social media in January and it’s 2020’s holy grail of sneakers for serious fashionistas. The Vaporwaffle Nike x Sacai drops on November 6th in two colourways… and here’s how to catch them..
First unveiled in January at Paris Fashion Week as part of the Sacai A/W 2020 show by Chitose Abe, the Nike x Sacai VaporWaffle brings the present and future together by blending two signature Nike silhouettes: the Vaporfly and 1983 Pegasus running shoes. Basically, the Vaporwaffle is a poignant tribute to the history of the Swoosh brand and a natural follow-up to the much-acclaimed LDVWaffle Sacai last year. Several colours have been unveiled over the year but the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle is about to get the party started with black/white then blue/black/white/red.
The vamp is the jewel in its complex deconstructed design as it lies on the double-layered midsole with an elongated heel and raised section. A mesh, suede and leather upper appears on top of the future-forward footwear. The tongues, Swooshes, logo on the heel and laces are all lined and come in different tones and textures true to Sacai’s hybrid status. The Vaporwaffle Nike x Sacai drops at 9am on November 6th on the Nike SNKRS app and you can snap the shoes up on raffles on online shops such as SNS, End, BTSN and Naked. Good luck!
