sacai’s reworked Nike LDWaffle first caught the sneaker and fashion world’s attention when it made its debut on the runways of Paris last year. Playing on the theme of doubles, sacai’s leading lady Chitose Abe playfully incorporates twice as many details found on the classic Nike silhouette, such as the Swoosh insignias and laces.
The new iteration sees the pair done up in luxe white and grey leather and suede panels. The laces have also been doubled up and features both ribbon and cord-like takes. Instead of a mesh base, a thicker nylon material has been used alongside the leather and suede panels. Finally a matching white exaggerated midsole, which extends outwards from the heel, finishes off the overall look.
The latest sacai x Nike LDWaffle in both black and white are rumored to be released next spring between March and April for a retail price of $160 USD. Get a better look at the forthcoming sacai x Nike LDWaffle above and keep it locked here for more details when they surface.
