Here’s a one of a kind break down of 1/15 JohnnydKicks Nike Chunky Sacai Waffle. When photographer, designer and sneaker creator John Trottier aka Johnnys Kicks created his custom Nike Chunky Sacai Waffle, the limited 15 available pairs sold out in 10 minutes flat. And for good reason, as John’s limited edition footwear are like nothing else you can find on the market. And while this part won’t leave the Yankeekicks collection, we still wanted to showcase the undeniable craftsmanship.
Having broken down the Real Vs. Fake for the SB Chunky Dunky, we can say with authority the quality of Johnny’s Sacai Waffle are on point. Great attention was paid to not only make the sneaker imitate the Ben & Jerry’s Dunk, but feel as good as they look on feet. Faux fur and suede overlays at the toe and heel feel supple, soft and still move effortlessly with the foot in the Sacai silhouette. The eyestays and vamp also get the faux fur treatment with a white leather base complimented by White on Light Grey laces.
A deeper Grey hits the suede on the toe while Green take on the suede at the heel to match the lower half of the foam midsole. We keep the Buttery Yellow Nike leather quarter panel Swoosh, but get a secondary Black one underneath. The Baby Blue skyline turns to breathable mesh underlays large enough to reveal the in psychedelic rainbow sole inserts, liner and collar. Black heel counters sport Buttery Yellow Nike Sacai branding while the inserts come in White. Doubled up Nike Sacai tongues come highlighted with a Total Orange Swoosh on top and a Black one below. Finally, simple Black coats the waffle rubber outsole. The box they sneakers came in also bears a thank you note from John Trottier himself.
