sacai is widely considered as one of Nike‘s strongest collaborative partners to-date, and 2021 is set to be another hard-hitting year as an assortment of footwear products will continue to roll out between the two parties. It’s arguable that the Nike LDWaffle is the most popular offering that has been released from these brands in years past and it’s now set to be launched in a new “Bright Citron” colorway with the assistance of UNDERCOVER.
Together, Jun Takahasi, Chitose Abe and the Swoosh have crafted a striking colorway that blends together both neutral tones and neon accents. Nylon base layers are cooked up with stark black outers, and come seated next to “Dark Grey” and “Sail” overlays. From there, the “Bright Citron” accents — a potential callout to the Nike Daybreak “Bright Citron” that dropped back in 2019 — take center stage as they spill onto the outer most Swooshes, interior lining and on one set of laces. More sprinkles of black make an appearance along the double stacked tongue branding, the extra laces as well as the new heel branding element that spells out the namesakes of each brand involved in this project. The duo level midsoles are both treated with “Sail” paint and bringing together its entire design is a waffle outsole that swamped in the shoe’s titular shade.
No release info has been announced just yet, but you can likely see these hitting Nike and select retailers later this year alongside two other colorways.
In case you missed it, official photos of the Stingwater x Nike SB Dunk Low “Magic Mushroom” have surfaced.
