Chitose Abe's sacai and Nike take their partnership in a new direction with the Nike Air Footscape. First revealed in Paris Fashion Week, the sacai Nike Footscape debuted as a part of their Fall/Winter 2023 Men's collection.
It goes without saying that the Nike sacai resume runs deep. The impressive catalog includes some of the most unique designs featuring the LD Waffle, the Cortez, and a series of Nike Blazers to name a few. But Chitose Abe understands that the market is fickle and following the announcement that Nike is planning to bring back the Air Footscape Wovens was the perfect time for sacai to add their design language to the cult classic silhouette.
Although the Nike Footscape has seen its glory in the past, it has flown under the radar for most people in recent years. Far from forgettable yet niche enough to be a vessel for new ideas with distinct upper and offset side lacing systems, the collaboration plays towards the versatility of sacai. The sacai Air Footscape was presented in three different colorways blue, black, and brown. The Japanese label's signature stacked midsole and double shoelace adorn the mid-top archival runner.
As a part of the Fall/Winter 2023 collection, sacai also showcased their upcoming collaboration with Carhartt. The collection featured co-branded hybrid chore coats that blend together bomber jacket linings as well as vibrant knits, corduroy jackets, and other outerwear pieces that are reconstructed through the lens of sacai.
