The Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle is Set to be Released This Month

Fashion lovers and sneaker aficionados alike had eyes on Sacai’s 2020 Fall/Winter Paris show.

Sacai’s 2018 Paris runway show wasn’t all asymmetrical cuts and busy prints. It was functional, wearable, and redefined the “fashion sneaker” to sporty new heights.

Sacai’s creative director, Chitose Abe, and Nike unveiled their LDV Waffle sneaker (a combination of Nike classics: the LDV and the Waffle) on the runway, and sneaker-enthusiasts everywhere have been staunchly committed ever since.

Fast forward to 2020: Sacai’s Fall/Winter Parisian showing featured the LDV Waffle revamped in black and white colorways, seemingly paring down the maximalist blueprint of 2018. Yet, the unfussy minimalism of the “White Nylon” and “Black Nylon” iterations still held true to its OG key design elements: those buzzy nuances of the sacai x Nike hybrid branding. Layered tongues, double swooshes on the lateral, and a stacked midsole with waffle imprinting on the outsole shyly bridge the gap between high fashion and streetwear.

Come March 10, shoppers can find the LDV Waffle at select Nike retailers, LUISAVIAROMA and the similar, for $160 USD.
