Nike Bring Back the Original Waffle Racer
Release: 17 September 2019

Virgil Abloh's re-imagined Waffle Racers have yet to arrive, but Nike have cooked up a little something to whet appetites ahead of the supposed October drop: the long awaited return of the OG silhouette.

True to OG form, the new release takes things back to 1977 to resurrect the original moccasin-inspired design, which has been absent from the Swoosh's retro lineup for quite a while now. Details like the wedge midsole and signature waffle tread outsole obviously remain intact, though subtle updates now include a memory foam sockliner and dual-density cushioning for superior comfort.

The 'University Blue' Waffle Racers are available online now, directly from the Swoosh, for just $85.
