Editor’s notes:

Alas, we finally see a release for the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle “Black Gum” and “Sail Gum”. But there’s a catch: it’s only going down in Canada (so far).

unique to Canada HAVEN February kicks off in double fashion with the launch of the new sacai x Nike VaporWaffle.

First cops and previews have been floating around the sneaker net for what seems like forever, with no confirmed release details in sight until now. Before HAVEN’s saving grace, sneaker hookup and resale platforms like StockX were the only sources of copping.

One year after its scheduled release, the wait is over for the gum-soled VaporWaffle.

Approached with neutral colorways of Black and Sail, the VaporWaffle makes a bold reintroduction with its fresh gum outsole, unlike previous versions with rubber soles.

Comfortable mesh and smooth-touch suede tie together across the upper, while a stacked midsole makes an unconventional statement below.

The duo’s signature double-grip detailing then completes the shoe. Ditching the double Swoosh this go-around, the tongue and laces get the job done with – might I say – “twice the fun”.

The Chitose Abe-led label is fresh off the runway as the brand recently unveiled its FW22 collection, which included the first glimpses of a Nike Cortez collaboration.

If you are not a Canadian resident, don’t worry. The streets say VaporWaffle will see a worldwide release in February. Stay tuned as we uncover more details.
