Sneakerheads have been eating up Sacai’s latest creations with Nike. With 90s inspired chunky aesthetics and doubled up Swooshes, it’s hard not to fall in love with their take on the LDWaffle. Aside from the nylon version of the Sacai x Nike LDWaffle, Nike is also dropping the Air Jordan 3 “UNC” – a sneaker that used to be a highly sought after PE exclusive. The brand is also showing some love to the Air Jordan 2 with a special “Multicolor” iteration. Scroll down to check out all the sneakers dropping this week.
Air Jordan 2 “Multicolor”
After launching a special colorway for Black History Month, Nike is giving the Air Jordan 2 more love by dropping a new “Multicolor” version. Colorful panels made from different materials are stitched together to form the uppers. The materials include patent leather, full-grain leather, nylon, mesh, cotton and rubber – each one adding a contrast and texture to the sneaker. Each side is constructed differently from the other, with only the heel cap, sock liner and laces staying uniform. You can cop a pair from Size? and End Clothing.
Air Jordan 3 “UNC”
The Air Jordan 3 “UNC” combines two major turning points in Michael Jordan’s career. The AJ3 is what kept MJ with Nike, while its UNC colorway was originally a PE for the UNC basketball team – MJ’s alma mater. His college basketball career was what propelled the legend into the NBA. This combination makes the Air Jordan 3 “UNC” a serious pick up for any AJ collector out there. You can read more about the sneaker here. You can pick up a pair from Nike SNKRS, End Clothing, Size? and Limited Edt (stay tuned to their Instagram for updates).
Rhude x Puma Performer
Los Angeles streetwear label Rhude has joined forces with Puma to create a motorsport-inspired sneaker – the Rhude x Puma Performer. The sneaker embodies the chaos and vibrancy of motorsport competitions. The Performer comes with chunky outsoles, and uppers that mix dark textiles, leather and suede layers. Pink and white accents around the laces add some contrast to the sneakers. To top off the collab, Rhude pops its logo onto the tongue and heel cap. You can cop a pair of these sneakers at End Clothing.
Where to buy
Nike x Sacai LDWaffle “Black”
Sacai and Nike are back with a new LDWaffle for those who took an L on the first pair that dropped. The main difference is the nylon on the uppers that replaces the see-through mesh of the earlier LDWaffle. The sneaker retains all the doubled up elements we enjoyed in its predecessor – double Swooshes, laces and embroidered branding. You can read more about the original leaks here. You can pick up the sneakers on End Clothing and Nike SNKRS.
