The Drop: Nike x Sacai LDV Waffle
Double down on everything.
Unveiled at the Sacai SS19 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, the Nike x Sacai LDV Waffle sneaker is the first release from this new and exciting collaboration.
Incorporating Sacai’s well known use of hybridization when it comes to their ready to wear, the LDV Waffle is the fusion of two silhouettes from Nike’s archives. Using the nylon/leather LDV and the Waffle Daybreak basketball sneaker, both from the 70s, this new iteration combines both aesthetics whilst reflecting Sacai’s unmistakable experimental style.
Everything on the sneaker has been doubled up, including the tongues, the laces, the Swoosh and the sole. A combination of the chunky ‘dadcore’ styles we have seen recently mixed with classic vintage appeal, the LDV Waffle is entirely unique. Presented in two colourways, it features a contrasting nylon mesh upper with soft suede panels.
Launching soon, the Nike x Sacai LDV Waffle sneaker will be available online at brownsfashion.com
