Stealthy season is just around the corner, and if you're looking for this year's hottest "Triple Black" trainer then the crown belongs to the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle "Off Noir". First leaked all the way back in Spring 2021, this understated pair is one of Chitose Abe's best releases, and we're now getting up close and personal thanks to these brand new shots from sneaker insider @s.sam.group!
Working on top of a waterproof nylon base that's perfect for the autumn and winter months ahead, the "Off Noir" is as delightfully deconstructed as ever. Everything from the Nike Swooshes to the tongues to even the midsoles have been doubled up for an aesthetic that is quite literally twice as nice. Co-branded detailing adorns the heel and insole, cementing one of the best collaborations of the past decade.
Of course, you can't talk about this VaporWaffle without mentioning the gum rubber outsole underneath. Offering up a striking pop of contrast that is sure to turn heads, it also provides wearers with durable traction with every step, ensuring that you have both feet on the ground during the wet and windy weeks.
Originally meant to drop this month, a new release date has yet to be officially announced for the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle "Black Gum", so make sure you keep it locked at The Sole Womens for more news as it develops! Let us know what you think of this coveted collab, and while you're here, you might as well take your first look at Drake's Nike Air Force 1 'Certified Lover Boy' collaboration!
