The sacai x Nike VaporWaffle Release Date Revealed
Set Your Alarms, The sacai x Nike VaporWaffle Is Just Around The Corner
Dad sneakers - there’s no escaping them. Still reigning supreme as the mnost sought-after sneaker on the market, OG styles like the Tripe S and the Archlight are just as popular as ever and sneaker brands like Nike have even jumped on the bandwagon. When talking about dad sneakers and Nike however, you can’t not think about their collection with sacai. Bringing out limited edition collections that have a ‘double everything’ approach, the partnership is responsible for the most innovative sneaker designs on the market. First came the LDWaffle which was launched last year and just months ago at Paris Fashion Week, sacai debuted the new VaporWaffle, which is already set to become one of the most popular drops of the year.
The new VaporWaffle is set to go on sale November 6 on Nike SNKRS, with the drop of four different colourways, retailing for US$180, but this has yet to be confirmed by Nike.
Similar to the LDWaffle, new press images show that the VaporWaffle is just as chunky, and includes design cues that pay homage to Nike’s Running history. Only two colourways have been revealed so far, which include “White/Red/Blue” which is the more colorful of the duo, adding dashes of red and blue atop a white and cream base and the second is “Black/White” which is a cool monochromatic shoe. Both are constructed from a mixture of mesh and suede.
Sneakerheads are some of the most dedicated shoppers out there, so if you want to get your hands on this collection best start setting you alarms now, and keep an eye on Nike’s social for news on the yet-to-be unveiled two colourways.
Rumours are also already swirling that Nike will be continuing its partnership with sacai in 2021, which wouldn’t be a surprise given the huge success of the collaboration - so we can expect that we’ll be seeing a lot more from both brands.
