Retro gets modernised in the Nike Waffle Debut. Soft leather overlays and an updated wedge midsole give you plush comfort and added lift while still maintaining a nostalgic vibe. The tried, true and trusted Waffle outsole adds traction, durability and heritage style to your step, making these the perfect university-inspired addition to your daily rotation.
In 1971, Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman was watching his wife, Barbara, make breakfast on a waffle iron and inspiration struck. He swapped batter for rubber 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.
