Hello and welcome to Six Figure Sneakerhead. With that said, let’s talk sneakers. Sacai and they’re exclusive Nike sneaker, the Vaporwaffle, is making a return. The “Dark Iris” colorway of the Vaporwaffle is slated to release on Thursday April 29th. The shoes are expected to release on the Nike SNKRS app for $180.

While this is a short blog, just know that here at SFS is the best place to gain valuable info about reselling and updates on all sneaker and streetwear releases.

Feel free to skip to Release Info and Conclusion now to get the need to know details for this release.

Second Wave of Vaporwaffle

Maintaining the similar style construction using layers last seen during the Holiday 2020 season, the upcoming Sacai project pairs the purple tones with “Campfire Fire” and rich navy hues. Stacked co-branding appears on the tongue, insole and heel, just as it did on the popular LD Waffle.

Underfoot, waffle-pattern tread indulges in a standard black makeup, while the robust midsole maintains a white and slightly-yellowed aesthetic, giving a nod to the original Waffle Racer from 1972.

Photos below, note the interesting choices in thickness for extra laces.

Conclusion and Resale Anticipation

I won’t say much about these because the name and photos speak for themselves. We’ve had a hiatus from the last Sacai release so all the hype will be surrounding this Vaporwaffle. Also available in Sesame Blue.

While I don’t have experience in having either of them on foot, I just have to deduce that the Vaporwaffle is an even smoother ride than the LD Waffle and I like that. I truly believe they have as much hype and staying power as any previous Sacai sneaker as well.
