We have been seeing a lot of three way collaborations from Nike recently, especially with the LDWaffle. With this recent Sacai x CLOT x Nike LDWaffle ‘Cool Grey’, we definitely think they saved the best until last. It’s no secret that at Lucked Out Laces we are huge Air Max 1 fans. Any shoe that gives a nod or pays homage to a classic AM1 colourway is a yes from us. For those that aren’t aware, this LDWaffle’s design is based off of the 2013 release of the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 ‘kiss of Death’. Much like the ‘Orange Blaze’ rendition that dropped recently, they did a fantastic job. The similarities are subtle but undeniable. This allows some nostalgia as well as a fresh new look to hit the streets with. The LDWaffle is a hugely popular silhouette right now, it’s of course no surprise that these have been an instant sell out across all retailers.
The Sacai x CLOT x Nike LDWaffle ‘Cool Grey’ tops all of the recent LDWaffle releases in our opinion. The super low key and clean look is a breath of fresh air. Materials are premium and provide a robust shoe that is going to be an easy everyday wear. We can’t seem to put our finger on why, but this shoe is ridiculously comfortable. It’s not like the other were uncomfortable but for some reason these have something special. Could be the lighter materials, along with the thin mesh upper but wither way, these things are like street slippers. When it comes to styling your look with a sneaker, versatility is a big deal. The neutral colour pallet used on this LDWaffle allows for a super easy wear. Throw on what you like, your good to go.
