The partnership between Nike and Sacai been on an absolutely historic run.
They first teamed up in 2015 on an Air Max 90 and their collaboration captured the attention of a niche crowd of fashion-focused Sacai fans. It wasn’t until the release of the Sacai LD Waffle and Blazer in 2019 that the collaboration truly exploded in the sneaker world. Since 2019, multiple colorways of Sacai Waffles and Blazers have dominated the resale market and in a few weeks, a new silhouette, the VaporWaffle, is set to release.
