Original Story (07/06/20): Japanese streetwear legend Hiroshi Fujiwara has previewed what appears to be a Fragment Design x Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle (aka LDWaffle).

While it’s unknown if this pair is a custom, a friends-and-family exclusive, or a full-blown pre-release sample, the idea of the collaboration is incredibly exciting nonetheless. The shoe features a Fragment-blue base, white swooshes, and dark blue and black leather paneling embossed with the Fragment lightning bolt badge at the forefoot. The shoe also appears to feature the ribbon-style lacing seen in the “White Nylon” and “Black Nylon” iterations of the original Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle.

Info on this possible collaboration is incredibly sparse at the moment, but you can take a look at Fujiwara’s preview shots below. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for any future updates on what would be a release of truly titanic proportions.
