Just yesterday, Japanese fashion brand sacai officially revealed two new colorways for the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle. After dropping four colorways back in 2020, it was circulating around the sneaker net that sacai and Nike weren’t done with the VaporWaffle model just yet. Now, the iconic duo is releasing the Dark Iris and Sesame colorways of the VaporWaffle sneaker next week.
Serving as a combination of Nike’s Vaporfly and Pegasus models, the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle combines both Nike’s modern and technological advanced elements with Sarai’s unconventional and experimental approach to fashion. The sneaker features the duo’s notable double Swoosh which can be seen in the previous LDWaffle collaboration. I think the most brow-raising element comes in the shoes elevated outsole which appears to be rising due to “wear” but is rather sturdy and full of support.
The latest colorways come just in time for spring and the approaching summer season. The “Sesame” colorway appears in variations of tan complete with a pop of navy blue and white. On the other hand, the “Dark Iris” colorway intrigues you with its primary deep violet with touches of rust. In all honesty, the color palette for the new drop could work for any season.
The sacai x Nike VaporWaffle “Dark Iris” and “Sesame” are scheduled to release first at sacai on April 27th. sacai is holding a raffle for the sneakers here where consumers can raffle for online or pickup in-store at their Aoyama location. On April 29th, Nike’s SNKRS app and select retailers will be offering the new colorways for the sneaker.
