In the spring of 2020, Sacai unveiled the Nike VaporWaffle as part of their Fall 2020 Menswear runway show. The silhouette featured an even more abstract design than its predecessor, the Nike LD Waffle Sacai.
The Nike Sacai Vaporwaffle Royal Fuchsia holds similar attributes that are present in the Swoosh’s original Waffle sole, but flips it on its head by adding a thicker, stacked midsole that peeks out from the heel. Next, the upper features white and grey suede and mesh to its entirety for breathability. Just like their past projects with Nike, Sacai adds both a second fuchsia Swoosh and tongue to the sneaker, continuing their layered motif.
The Nike Sacai Vaporwaffle Royal Fuchsia released in November of 2020 and retailed for $180.
