Retro gets modernised in the Nike Waffle Debut. Soft leather and an airy knit evoke a nostalgic collegiate vibe while a modernised wedge midsole helps make things feel plush and comfortable. To top it off, we've kept it classic on the bottom with the tried, true and trusted Waffle outsole to add traction, durability and heritage style.
In 1971 Nike cofounder Bill Bowerman was watching his wife, Barbara, make breakfast on a waffle iron when inspiration struck. He swapped rubber for batter, and the Waffle outsole was born. It not only delivers traction, durability and heritage Nike style—it proves that greatness is in the everyday. And that old, rusty waffle iron? Well, it now sits on a pedestal at Nike World Headquarters.
