Nike Waffle Racer 17

Back in the 1970s, the very idea of running for fun or fitness was new. No one really did it. When people went on runs, they’d often be stopped by cops who wanted to know who was chasing them. Obviously all of that has changed. But the appeal of the classic 1974 Nike Waffle Racer? That hasn’t waned one bit.

This re-release of one of the most famous shoes in Nike’s long history boasts both a comfortable fit and an undeniably classic look. This is due in large part to the inclusion of the comfortable textile upper along with a memory foam sock liner. The two make for a comfortable and dynamic fit while the grippy outsole provides more traction than you could ask for – no matter where you are. To top it all off, this summer-ready pair of blacked out sneakers come in at a more than reasonable asking price. Grab them up before this release becomes history.
