7 new sneakers dropping this week, including the Sacai x Fragment LDWaffle

The wave of new Travis Scott x Nike sneakers may have ebbed for now, but don’t think you can catch your breath just yet.

This week, the sneaker world is replete with other noteworthy collaborations. Amongst them is the comeback of Jeremy Scott x Adidas, which means that for better or worse, you’ll be soon seeing those winged shoes on the street again like it’s the 2000s.

Sacai is also trying to outdo the success of its LDWaffle shoes with a string of collabs, starting with fellow Japanese streetwear label Fragment. And then there’s Bape, on a roll after teaming up with Timberland, which has reimagined a classic ASICS running shoe.

Below, see all the best sneaker releases in Singapore this week.

Since 2019, the LDWaffle has been a hallmark of Sacai’s successful partnership with Nike. Now, the Japanese fashion brand has tapped on three other labels to remix its bestselling sneaker silhouette: Fragment, Clot and Undercover. The Fragment version, designed by both Sacai creative director Chitose Abe and Japanese streetwear icon Hiroshi Fujiwara, is set to drop first. Crafted in mesh and suede, the sneakers come in two neutral colourways, Blue Void and Smoke Grey, that are sure to win over Fragment fans.

Nike has refreshed its iconic high-top trainers with black suede uppers as well as speckled midsoles that are meant to resemble a starry night sky. Echoing the original 1990 design, the new Jordan 5s are also marked by their signature translucent soles that complement the inky hues seen on the rest of the shoes.

Fashion’s king of kitsch, Jeremy Scott, has revived his collaboration with Adidas, which you may recall had a successful run back in the 2000s. His first move? To reinterpret the Forum High silhouette, which he has covered in US$100 dollar bills featuring his face — a nod to the Adidas sneakers’ original price. The Moschino designer has also added a pair of wings to the sneakers, referencing his past Adidas creations. If you’re feeling nostalgic for the era of Juicy Couture, these are the shoes for you.
