Over the past few years, Chitose Abe has worked on some of the most iconic Nike collaborations of all-time. From the LDWaffle "White" from 2019, to the VaporWaffle "Black" from 2021, all the way to the Cortez 4.0 "Grey" from 2022, hype surrounding the Japanese visionary's projects have been more popular than ever. Now, it looks like she's ready to add another high heat hybrid under her belt with sacai x Nike Footscape. Revealed on the runways of Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023, make sure you read on to find out everything that we know so far.
Debuted in three distinct colorways including "Black," "Blue," and "Brown," the fashion designer's take on the 1995 silhouette takes the running model to rugged new heights. While it retains the silhouette signature features, such as the asymmetrical lacing system and Swoosh embroidery, Abe has added her own deconstructed twist to it. Not only has the ankle portion been extend for added support, you'll also get two sets of laces and a double-stacked Air midsole that gives it significantly more height. This unit has been aggressively sculpted for a look that is sure to turn heads wherever you go.
Expected to release sometime in Fall/Winter 2023, the sacai x Nike Footscape collection will definitely sell out fast especially with the gorpcore community.
