Behold the Nike Women’s Vandal 2k Double Stack

Nike will release the towering Women’s Vandal 2k Double Stack this May in both red and black.

The Vandal 2k Double Stack is a “remix” of the 1985 classic Nike Vandal High, which was worn by basketball players. The two stacked, bold and undeniably feminine cupsoles epitomize the contemporary expression of lift. Plus they have a little strap! Both are dropping on May 5.

There are two versions, red with blue stripes or black with gold stripes. According to Nike representatives, “Inspired by the OG colorway, a mix of metallic silver, red and obsidian come together with elevated materials to deliver a retro look with a twist.” However, “The metallic gold accents add energy to a staple black-and-white colorway.”

Hypebeast points out that Comme des Garçons debuted a stacked Nike Cortez during their Fall/Winter 2018 runway show at Paris Fashion Week. It was actually the most ready-to-wear garment worn by the models for the occasion. But they are couture.

Nike currently offers the Women’s Nike Vandal High LX ($110) in black and white. They are also an updated model of the classic eighties Nike Vandal High, but without a platform sole.

The Vandal 2k Double Stack will be made available from the official Nike online store.

Buffalo London recently reissued the super chunky platform sneakers that were worn by the Spice Girls during the nineties. Lisa Frank makes neon unicorn hi tops and leopard slip ons.
