Gray, sail, black and “Bright Citron” meet on the shoe’s color scheme, drawing some palette parallels to the UNDERCOVER x Nike Daybreak “Bright Citron” from 2019. A black nylon base serves as the canvas for a duo of Swooshes, double-stacked tongues, eyestays and laces, layered mudguards and heel pieces and a heel tab with co-branded detailing.
Though the multiplied stylings — and to an extent the color scheme — may be somewhat familiar at this point, what’s most unique about the UNDERCOVER x sacai x Nike LDWaffle is the branding on the midsole’s extended heel piece. A detail not present on past releases, it lists out each collaborative party’s name in black text. These midsoles are made from sail EVA foam, and sit above a “Bright Citron” waffle outsole to complete the look.
The UNDERCOVER x sacai x Nike LDWaffle “Bright Citron” has yet to receive an official release date, but will likely hit shelves this fall. In the meantime, take a look at on and off-foot shots below.
