Textile and leather upper adds durability.
Swoosh wraps around your heel to form a pull tab—adding aesthetic appeal to on-and-off functionality.

In 1971, Nike cofounder Bill Bowerman was watching his wife 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? It now sits on a pedestal at Nike World Headquarters.
