The brand has experimented with and almost changed how people view sneakers. It’s similar to Off-White in the sense that they change the way sneakers are constructed and therefore viewed.

Nike Vaporwaffle Sacai Black White

  • Retail Price: $180

The Nike Sacai Vaporwaffle Black and White takes inspiration from the brand’s own Waffle sole and flips it on its head by adding a thicker, layered midsole that sticks out from the heel.

Next, the upper shares some similar features with the Nike Cortez but swaps out the usual leather with black material and mesh to its entirety for a more breathable and lightweight feel.

Just like their past projects with Nike, Sacai adds both a second Swoosh in white and tongue to the sneaker, continuing their layered theme in the sneaker.

The most notable thing about this sneaker for resellers is the profit. A retail price of $180 and an average resale price of $817 means this is the perfect sneaker for sneaker reselling, but you’d be striking gold to get your hands on a pair.

This Nike LD comes with a green upper plus orange accents, orange Nike “Swoosh”, black Nike “Swoosh”, white midsole, and a black sole. These sneakers were released in May 2019 and retailed for $155. 

One of the more colorful pairs in the Sacai collaboration, this pair won’t be missed when you’re wearing them.

I can also speak from experience when I say that the Nike LD Waffle is an incredibly comfortable sneaker and absolutely fantastic for wear. This pair, in particular, however, isn’t cheap.

With a retail of just $155, the Nike LD Waffle Sacai Green Multi has an average resale price of $516!

This Blazer High comes with a black upper plus blue accents, white Nike “Swoosh”, blue Nike “Swoosh”, white midsole, and a white sole. These sneakers were released in May 2019 and retailed for $140.

This Nike collaboration is one of the most known out there, probably due to both the style and the colorway.

The stacked blues work incredibly well on this sneaker, and the Blazer mid is a sneaker that has been on the up for about 5 years now.

The Nike Blazer Mid Sacai White Black Legend Blue is a bit more affordable than the other pairs we’ve seen on this list. With a retail price of just $140, the pair has an average resale price of $363.

Nike Blazer Low Sacai KAWS Neptune Blue

  • Retail Price: $140
  • Resell Price: $185
  • Colorway: Neptune Blue, Light Blue, Pink, Yellow

The Nike Blazer Low Sacai KAWS Neptune Blue features a Neptune Blue leather upper with multicolored overlapping eye stays and Swooshes, drawing inspiration from the palettes prevalent in KAWS’ most renowned pieces of art.

On the stacked outsole, KAWS XX logos are plastered on the lateral toe. Doubled tongues and laces add the finishing touch to this already special sneaker.

Brian Donnelly, known professionally as Kaws, is an American artist and designer. His work includes repeated use of a cast of figurative characters and motifs, some dating back to the beginning of his career in the 1990s, initially painted in 2D and later realized in 3D.

This sneaker perfectly encapsulates what KAWS and Sacai represent in design, all through this Nike collaboration.

This is another pair that is great for sneaker reselling. It may not seem like it, as it has the lowest profit margin on the list, but this is a pair that is easier to get for below retail.
