Breakfast is ready! Nike’s Waffle Sneakers are officially making a 2019 comeback. The classic 1977 silhouette hits this era with a fresh “Battle Blue” colorway.
The retro sneakers, which draws inspiration from moccasin, combines “University Blue” suede panels, eyelets, and heel counter with a nylon body in a softer shade of Battle Blue. You’ll also see the Nike logo in this tinge, on the heel. The iconic Swish emblem comes this time in a super vibrant splash of “Amarillo,” running down the lateral side and up to the heel tab. Other touches include a pristine white tongue coupled with white laces. You also get a dual-density foam midsole and a black rubber waffle outsole.
The Waffle Sneakers was one of the two silhouettes Nike created in its early days. The first was the Nike Cortez, a minimalistic pair of kicks that would become one of the most acclaimed shoes of all time. The Waffle Sneakers was the second, introduced as a stylish corollary to the former model, track-ready and with a kooky grip pattern, to boot.
At the time, the Waffle Sneakers did not gather much fandom nor did it look like it would become one of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes. Of course, years removed from that era, things are different. They’re now one of the most lauded Nike sneakers in existence, selling out mere moments after hitting shelves. The new, reintroduced model is now yours to buy. They’re available via Nike’s website for $85. See more when you hit the link below.CHECK IT OUT
