There is no denying how successful the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle has been since it’s release in November 2020. Continuing Chitose Abe’s incredibly creative design legacy with Nike, the Vaporwaffle was one of last year’s most popular sneakers. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a number of rumoured colourways of the sacai Vaporwaffle, but one, in particular, caught our eyes. Now, we have our best look yet at the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle “Black/Gum”.
Following on from the successful release of the “Tour Yellow” and “Villain Red”, the “Black/Gum” Vaporwaffle is noticeably different. First of all, the traditional mesh base has been replaced with black nylon and accented with suede and leather. The black leather Swoosh almost touches the suede mudguard, something we’ve not seen on a Nike Vaporwaffle before. Of course, the recognisable double-stacked detailing has remained the same. Black tongues, laces and midsoles all blend into one, though the gum sole gives this pair a nice finish.
If you like the look of the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle “Black/Gum” then sit tight. As it stands, the pair is set to release some time in spring for €180. Check out the on-foot images below and let us know if you’ll cop these sacai Nike sneakers.
