Release date: May 30

At this point, Sacai’s LDWaffle collaboration may go down as one of the more peculiar drops of the year, but that doesn’t make them any less desirable. Following delayed release after delayed release, the Chitose Abe-designed sneakers are finally set to drop at the end of the month. The sneaker's juxtaposition of Nike’s vintage running shoes and today’s maximalist wave are a surprising-yet-welcome breathe of fresh air, and they're already one of the most hyped sneakers of the year despite not having an official stateside launch yet. —Riley Jones
