Original Story (02/03/21): The Spring 2021 collection of sacai x Nike Vaporwaffles is almost here, four colorways that follow-up the four that released in the Winter 2020 season. With two of the colorways already previewed, let’s take a look now at the upcoming “Sesame” colorway.
While the Winter 2020 VaporWaffles featured a mesh construction, these new pairs are upgraded to a more weather-resistant nylon. The “Sesame” colorway comes equipped with a light beige nylon upper with darker tan overlays. Navy leather dresses the Swoosh and the heel panel, matching one of the sets of laces and the back portion of the midsole. As this is a sacai x Nike collaboration, the shoe features a “double” design, with double tongues, two sets of laces, a second white Swoosh painted over the first, and a double-stacked midsole that combines elements of the Vaporfly with the old school waffle-sole of the ’80s Pegasus.
The sacai x Nike VaporWaffle “Sesame” is slated to release this spring alongside the “Off-Noir” and “Dark Iris” colorways, as well as a rumored “White/Sail-Sail” colorway. Check out this colorway below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
