Although much attention has recently been placed on a Nike Cortez it previewed in its Autumn/Winter 2022 show, sacai hasn’t completely abandoned the Nike VaporWaffle silhouette it debuted in November 2020, as the sneaker has appeared in an all-“Black” colorway complete with “Light Gum Brown” bottoms.

Constructed with a premium mix of suede, leather and canvas, Chitose Abe’s newly-surfaced creation maintains a dual-layered aesthetic that’s trickled down to some of the Swoosh’s inline solo efforts. Stacked nylon tongues feature co-branding, as does the pull tab accompanied upper heel panel. Though clad in stealthy arrangements, profile swooshes and foam midsoles make some of the collaboration’s boldest statements as they deliver varying textures, shades of “Black” and drive the layered look “home.” Arguably, however, the spotlight is stolen by the “Light Gum Brown” finish that covers the waffle-patterned outsole underfoot, a direct nod to Nike Running’s origins. As with previous drops, the next sacai VaporWaffle arrives in a custom shoe box and with additional sets of laces.

No firm Nike SNKRS release date has been disclosed by any party involved, but that’s likely to change as summer inches closer. In the meantime, enjoy official images of Abe’s latest proposition here below.

Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. banner, the Air Jordan 1 Mid is set to have another great year given its dozens of upcoming styles.
