Nike Resurrects Bill Bowerman’s ‘Waffle Racer’ For Its Latest D/MS/X Sneaker

Sep 3, 2020

Category: Gear

Instead of resurrecting classic sneaker models for the modern consumer, Nike has, once again, decided to remain a step ahead of its competition. To achieve this, the monolithic footwear company penned its D/MS/X line — a sub-genre that specializes in the refurbishment of its historic sneakers. The latest project to take on the D/MS/X monicker is none other than Bill Bowerman’s Waffle Racer; although, you’d be forgiven if you didn’t draw the parallel.

While subtle, the D/MS/X Waffle is a symbolic tribute to the Bowerman-built running icon. It adopts an interesting “Starfish Orange/Pine Green” colorway, suede, and white leather accents, and a healthy helping of nylon flair, complementing its smooth tonal upper. The shoe’s responsive two-piece EVA foam sole exhibits a truly domineering presence, thanks to its large TPU piping, and classic waffle-textured lower. But what makes the D/MS/X Waffle so interesting is its intricate construction. Up top, a gridded nylon mid-foot/heel section provides a weighted contrast when compared to its orange nubuck toebox, transitioning from texture to texture in a striking manner. Head to Nike China’s website to learn more about the shoe, which is slated to retail for approximately $118.
