Even from afar, it’s hard to miss the striking design of the UNDERCOVER x sacai x Nike LDWaffle University Red.
A product of two renowned designers’ aesthetic, these shoes are an amalgamation of Chitose Abe’s flair for hybrid silhouettes and Jun Takahashi’s love for edgy yet colourful streetwear. It starts with a deep blue-green nylon base that’s slightly quilted. This unconventional upper is made more outstanding thanks to the mix of grey suede and smooth leather overlays. Adding to the vibrant look of the shoe is the red and white palette present in the laces, double Nike Swoosh and double branding in the tongue.
