About Nike Sacai
Luxury Japanese brand Sacai, founded by fashion designer Chitose Abe in 1999, focuses on uniqueness, timelessness and innovation in its creations. The brand has become more widely known in the sneaker world thanks to its collaboration with Nike, with whom it has already created several special models with dual design elements. Abe's collections capture the aesthetics of everyday life and strive to be as unique and innovative as possible. The idea of hybridizing fabrics and juxtaposing contrasting materials makes this brand unique. Created in collaboration with the globally popular Swoosh brand, the Sacai sneakers are the perfect fusion of streetwear and elegance. Whether it's the Vaporwaffle or the LD Waffle, pieces from this collaboration are loved by the entire fashion world.
About the brand
The Nike brand was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports by University of Oregon coach Bill Bowerman and his student Phil Knight. They opened their first store in 1966 and interestingly enough, before they started making their own shoes, they were the exclusive importer of Onitsuka Tiger shoes, today's Asics.
Nike is often associated with the innovative use of new technologies (Air, Zoom, React...), and above all with timeless and stylish products. This is not the only reason why Nike is the world's largest manufacturer and seller of sneakers on the global market. Among their most popular products are the Air Force 1 and the Dunk, of which we have a lot of them on our e-shop. It's not only on these models that countless collaborations have been created that have absolutely dominated the streetwear world. As the most famous we can mention the Nike Dunk model. Released in 1985, the Dunk is still a legend of the city streets after 30 years and in its rich history, it has managed to win the hearts of members of many cultures, be it skateboarding, basketball, BMX and many others. Available in high, low or mid, there is a version to suit everyone. There are hundreds of colorways, from the original collage pack containing colorways like Michigan, UNLV, and Villanova, to the influx of new colors and variations in recent years. And if you're craving something really special, we've got some of the most famous collaborations for you, like the deconstructed visual collaborations with Off White and its founder, streetwear legend Virgil Abloh, or with arguably the most popular rapper of our time, Travis Scott and his label Cactus Jack.
Nylon - the main advantage of nylon is high durability. Despite its strong and hard to damage surface, this material is very light and pleasant to the touch.
Suede - Suede is leather that is sanded on the reverse side, where the "pile" remains on the surface. It can be more susceptible to moisture, but is very breathable and comfortable to wear.
Leather - There is no better material for shoes than leather. It is breathable, soft, and easily conforms to the shape of the foot.
