All throughout 2018, one of the most anticipated sneakers of the coming year was Sacai’s progressive Nike collaboration. Though the shoe wasn’t reported to release until spring/summer 2019, the collection effectively held us hostage for the better part of the last 12 months.
And still, even before that collection officially hits stores, a second installment has been revealed. Previewing at Paris Fashion Week where the first set famously impressed, both the Dunk High x Blazer and Waffle Daybreak x Lunar LDV Trail hybrids were seen in monochromatic iterations different from the widely colored pairs seen last year.
Each of these styles serve as singular installments to Sacai’s fall/winter 2019 collection. The overarching color palette speaks to cooler climate, as white, grey and shades of noir dominate the forthcoming collection. Expect this Sacai x Nike collection later this year.
Update 3/13: First seen on a Parisian runway back in January, monochromatic iterations of the Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle Daybreak and Blazer Mid are now reported to release later this year. They are rumored to drop after the more colorful iterations of the aforementioned silhouettes release very soon. More details to come.
