Drops 07 Dec 2023
Renowned for her avant-garde creations under the Sacai label, Chitose Abe is again making waves in the sneaker world with her latest collaboration with Nike — this time with severe 90s flair.
As the year 2024 approaches, final collections are finding their way to retailers, and Abe's outdoor-inspired collaboration with Nike is no exception. The Sacai Magmascape combines elements of the Air Footscape and Air Magma, resulting in a hybrid design that pushes the boundaries of sneaker innovation. This fusion has been reimagined in three captivating color schemes: "Black," "Pecan," and "Varsity Royal."
Among these options, the "Varsity Royal" pair stands out as a nod to sacai's muse, drawing a clear connection to the Nike Air Footscape's original colorway from the mid-1990s. This joint endeavor retains the essence of the ergonomic running sneaker while reworking the sole unit to align with Nike's vintage hiking silhouettes. The influence of the Nike Air Magma boot is evident in the collar, transforming the low-profile base into a high-top design with a rugged aesthetic.
Enjoy an official look at the trio below, and look out for pairs to drop on Nike SNKRS on December 7th, each priced at $200 USD.
