Nike is an American athletic footwear and clothing corporation, whilst Sacai is a Japanese luxury fashion brand founded by renowned fashion designer Chitose Abe. Abe and Sacai first linked with Nike in 2015 for a women's collection in collaboration with Nike Lab. The first Nike Sacai releases were three futuristic yet minimal silhouettes of the Air Max 90. Dressed in colourways of obsidian/volt with volt lining, obsidian/black with black lining, and Wolf Grey with Volt lining, these shoes sported a lace-free makeover.
Later, in 2015, Nike Sacai released three iterations of the Nike Dunk High Lux. These iterations were dressed in three distinct colourways: white, navy blue, and volt Obsidian. After this release, Sacai X Nike went on to deliver four other iterations of the Dunk. In 2018, the two brands released the LDWaffle and Blazer Mid on the SS19 Sacai runway at Paris Fashion Week. The LDWaffle comprised selected elements from both the Nike LDV and Waffle silhouettes and layered them on top of one another. The Blazer Mid consisted of the Nike Blazer and Nike SB Dunk designs slapped into one shoe, doubling up on every shoe. These two hybrid designs would receive various colourways. Sacai and Nike have since released collaborations with Fragment, CLOT, Undercover, and KAWS. The two have also conceived a fifth model, the Sacai x Nike Cortez.
The Nike Sacai collaboration has been extremely successful. In our opinion, this is because the collaboration has resulted in unique, forward-thinking shoe designs. Despite their stylishness, the shoes are still comfy.
If you plan on adding a Nike Sacai trainer collaboration, consider updating your collection with KAWS Sacai clothing. Like Sacai trainers, these accessories are colourful, stylish, and functional.
