During the sacai F/W23 runway show, models were spotted rocking various colorways of the sacai x Nike Air Footscape Mid.
One of the more experimental partners for Nike, sacai has long brought its unique aesthetic to various silhouettes from The Swoosh and most famously crafted the sacai x Nike LD Waffle in 2019 to much success. Since then, the duo (and many times with a third partner) have brought us a slew of releases on vintage-like silhouettes, and it seems this trend isn’t stopping anytime soon as during sacai’s latest runway show the brand showcased multiple colorways of its upcoming Nike Air Footscape Mid collab.
Taking the archival Air Footscape and raising its cut to a mid-top model, the asymmetrical design the silhouette is famous for remains and was showcased in “Brown,” “Blue,” and “Black” with each of these shades taking over the mesh siding of the upper. Suede overlays on the toe and midfoot follow in a tonal shade for the brown and black renditions while the blue colorway features grey accents on these panels. Per usual, sacai adds a double lacing system to the silhouette with one coming in a solid shade contrasting each pair while the other takes on a two-tone black and grey 3M-laden design. Atop the tongue sits a co-branded Nike and sacai logo while “Nike” itself is debossed onto the collar’s suede. Underfoot sits the classic Air Footscape sole unit that was designed, alongside the upper itself, with the human foot’s anatomy in mind. Rounding out the design is the black rubber outsole with an outdoor-ready traction pattern.
The sacai x Nike Air Footscape Mid is set to release in the Fall/Winter 2023 season through sacai, Nike, and select retailers online and in-store. As of this writing, sizing and pricing information is TBA.
