Nike has confirmed the next Sacai sneaker collabs to release. The drops include the coveted LDWaffle and the Blazer High models.
The hybrid styles are scheduled to release next month in two contrasting black-and-white-based iterations, as well as a “Pine Green” makeup for the LDWaffle shoe. Each silhouette features Sacai’s signature elements, including double Swoosh branding on the sides, dual tongues and stacked midsoles. The heel tabs feature both Sacai and Nike branding.
As a refresher, the LDWaffle combines design components of the classic LDV and Waffle running sneakers, while the Blazer High blends the classic Dunk High and Blazer basketball models into one.
“Often, I take the things I like from two different items of clothing and splice them together to create a whole that is bigger than the sum of its parts,” Sacai founder Chitose Abe said in a statement. “I express the end result as a hybrid. There has to be a genuine interest or connection in order for me to create something new and unexpected. Another important thing is that the partnership needs to contribute exactly half the work.”
Accompanying the selection of footwear is an 11-piece running apparel collection including jackets, shorts and more. The next Sacai x Nike collection will launch sometime in September on Nike SNKRS and at select Nike stockists, but the brand has not yet disclosed a specific release date.
