Stacked-Sole Unit Bright Sneakers

Nike and sacai Join Forces on Another LDWaffle Sneaker Model

— May 11, 2021 — Fashion
sacai works in collaboration with Nike once again and this time, the duo work on a new iteration of the LDWaffle sneaker model. The shoe is also made possible with the help of CLOT, as the sole unit is the main focus of the entire design. It sits on top of a stacked foundation with a bright color palette.

The upper has a blend of mesh and nylon materials and replaces the usual clear TPE with a CLOT iteration. The same stacked aesthetic also follows through to the branding details as well, seen at the Swoosh motif by the midfoot. The Swoosh has two overlapping one another, with burgundy resting below a brighter orange Swoosh.
