Chitose Abe, after crafting what some certainly consider the shoe of the year, has been on a high as of late as she ushers in more and more with every season. What may be her last few on the LDWaffle, however — as a new model is just on the horizon — is something of a departure far off from any of the last two capsules. No vibrant colors, no mesh bases, not even any discernible contrast; rather, the sacai designer is offering up the silhouette as itself with nylon unders outfitting with her now signature doubled, hybridized motifs. This white colorway, a likely favorite next to the all black, is of a minimal palette composed solely of its most definitive shade as well as one just barely grey-tinged. The latter acts as more of an accent note as it backs the most outward elements, creating dimension by way of tonal difference and nappy suede texture. Elsewhere, the tongue branding is given neutral lettering in compliment, leading to the laces whose once standard flat form is swapped out for elegant ribboning. Grab a good look at the pair here and sit tight as rumor has it these will be arriving on February 2020.
