Up Close: The KAWS x sacai x Nike Blazer Lows
Chitose Abe’s sacai label continues to dominate sneaker discourse in 2021, the Japanese imprint collaborating with Jun Takahashi’s powerhouse UNDERCOVER for the Nike LDWaffle, and linking up with legendary designer Jean Paul Gaultier for neck-craning VaporWaffles.
Revealed in two distinct colourways, the KAWS x sacai x Nike Blazer Lows again feature sacai’s signature stacked midsoles, tongues, shoelaces and eyestays, while KAWS’ iconic ‘XX’ motif strikes the tongue tags and midsoles. Emblazoned with exposed-foam tongues and misaligned midsoles, the sacai x Nike partnership is still one of the most lucrative in the sneaker industry.
Look for the KAWS x sacai x Nike Blazer Low to release in July 2021 at select retailers.
