One of the most anticipated releases of the year, the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle has fans waiting on tenterhooks for a release and now official imagery of the modern silhouette is gearing everyone up for the drop. Offering an up-close and personal look at the sneaker from every angle, these images especially highlight the “shelf” heel the luxury/high-street collab team is known for.
Where the previous sacai x Nike sneaker boasted smooth satin accents, the side panels on the Vaporwaffle are crafted from an ultra-breathable mesh that's woven so your socks are on show. Nike's world-famous Swoosh graces the sides and co-branding is layered onto the heel for extra style points. The stacked sole builds up to a heel shelf that's more prominent than ever before and the double-layered lace-up fastening nearly extends all the way down to the toe. Fitted with just the right amount of cushioning, these sneaks cover every base.
Layered details feature throughout the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle – with everything from the Swoosh to the tongue boasting a modern stacked effect. Rumour has it that these sneaks will land in late November but stay tuned into The Sole Womens to be the first to know more about this release and more Nike drops, news and restocks.
