The announcement of the Sacai x Nike collaboration had a covert preview mixed in that depicted the footwear that was to come from the partnership.
Ahead of the official unveil, more light is shed on the collection courtesy of these images. The Sacai x Nike Air Max 90 pairs are most striking in their loss of the laces, which has the sneakers looking much less busy all around. The traditional suede and mesh uppers are replaced here with what appears to be a Vac-Tec construction. The insoles on these two pairs are stamped with Sacai x Nike in reference to the team up.
There is no release date information yet for the laceless Sacai x Nike Air Max 90s.
UPDATE 3/12: The Sacai x Nike Air Max 90 capsule will release globally on March 19. Japan's launch of the collection will happen on March 25. The NikeLab Dunk Lux will be introduced to the collection in June.
