sacai x Nike VaporWaffle White/Sail

Bound to be one of the most popular releases come the end of the year, the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle ‘White/Sail’ becomes the latest collaboration in a long line of releases between the two brands. The sneaker sees a creamy white design for the upper as well as a gum sole, with Chitose Abe’s signature doubled up swoosh, tongue, lace, and well, everything, making an expected appearance. This pair released alongside an all black iteration also.

Coming in a grey and black colourway, the upper ankle part of the shoe is comprised of soft grey waterproof nubuck, whilst the sole and mudguard is made out of a durable black rubber. This pair is most certainly a reliable choice for the long term.
