After a few delays, Nike has finally announced the official release dates for their collaboration with the Japanese high-fashion label sacai. The Nike x sacai LDWaffle and Blazer Mid were first debuted at sacai’s SS19 runway show in Paris in June 2018, catching everyone’s attention due to the double tongues, double shoelaces, and double Swooshes.
The LDWaffle is a hybrid of two of Nike’s heritage running shoes: the LDV and Daybreak, both silhouettes from the 1970s that featured of-the-era waffle soles. The hybrid model features a double-stacked waffle sole. The Blazer Mid is also a hybrid, combining elements of the Blazer and Dunk High, and features an elongated midsole.
The LDWaffle will release in five colorways on May 16, while the Blazer Mid will release in two colorways on May 30. The image below includes every Nike retailer that will be stocking this collaboration.
