In July 2020, rumors of a second collaboration between Japanese designers Hiroshi Fujiwara and Chitose Abe, the respective founders of Fragment Design and Sacai, appeared on social networks. A Nike LDWaffle Sacai in Fragment Design’s signature colorways was unveiled (article available HERE).
According to those close to the labels, this triple collaboration will be born and a general release has been confirmed.
The shoe is dressed in navy blue, Obsidian and white. Contrary to the sample released last summer, this new Nike LDWaffle version consists of an upper in Obsidian mesh, and not in nylon. This base is complemented by overlays in navy blue suede and a double side Swoosh in white leather. The doubled tongues feature different finishes and branding labels, Nike on one and Fragment on the other. The Fragment Design logo is also engraved on the mudguard and the Nike and Sacai brandings should be combined on the white leather heel. The whole is based on the emblematic white double-layer midsole combined with a navy blue waffle rubber outsole, harmoniously completing the design.
The Fragment Design x Sacai x Nike LDWaffle will be available in the spring of 2021 at selected retailers and on nike.com for a suggested retail price of 160€. More details to come, stay tuned !
