The four-handed co-lab between Chitose Abe’s brand and the sportswear giant provides a colorful reinterpretation of the LD waffle and Blazer mid models
Nike teams up with Sacai. The sneakers capsule, already spotted on the runway during the Paris Fashion Week, will enter selected stores on September 5th. The collection comes almost ten years after the debut of the label founded in 1999 in Tokyo by Chitose Abe, whose maiden name is Sakai.
The Sacai x Nike unisex line is a manifestation of Japanese creativity and involves a colorful reinterpretation of two cult models, the LD waffles and the mid-Blazers, available in five and two colorways respectively. The design is characterized by the theme of the double thanks to a double tongue, double laces, double sole and double Swoosh, the iconic Nike mustache.
This is the second time that the Japanese brand has joined forces with Nike. The last capsule dates back to 2015 and consisted of performing garments.
