It’s time for a second Nike x Sacai collaboration! The Japanese fashion brand revealed its new collaboration with Nike at the Paris Fashion Week and the sneaker community is quite excited. Previously, Nike and Sacai had come together for an innovative sneaker dubbed the VaporWaffle. The Nike x Sacai VaporWaffle brought together the groundbreaking Vaporfly and the timeless Pegasus from 1983, emphasising attention to detail and blending elements from both the past and the future of running footwear.
