Recently, Nike has clearly focused on threesomes. Design threesomes. We may have lost count, but you probably remember Jordan x Travis Scott x Fragment , Nike x Sacai x Clot , Nike x Sacai x Undercover , etc pp. Then a few months ago it was announced that Kaws and Sacai were collaborating. Now the Kaws x Sacai x Blazer Low is just around the corner. All information is available here.
Meanwhile, official pictures of the new Nike Blazer Low Colourways have appeared. There should be two. A blue-green and a dark red pair. In terms of design, nothing has really changed compared to the previous blazers. Very colorful, but well combined, all leather layers are on top of each other. The only difference: the typical Kaws XX logo on the midsole and the tongue tag.
Kaws is very happy about the cooperation: “I'm excited to finally be able to share this collaborative project I've been working on with Sacai. I consider Chitose Abe a friend and am grateful that she welcomed my work into her creative world.” It was fun and I hope you enjoy it”
Basically, we think the designs are great. But the three-way collabs are getting a little too far for us, too. The users on Instagram also see it that way and write under the posts that there are too many Sacai collaborations and the sneaker industry is slowly changing “collaborated to death”. We don't find collabs that difficult, but we would like to see such collaborations produce more than a new color and another logo.
The Kaws x Sacai x Blazer Low are part of Sacai's Fall/Winter 2021 collection, so the shoes should be coming soon too. As soon as we have a final date and a shop list, you will find all information on our release calendar ( teal and dark red ) or our free app .
