The technological advances in athletic shoe design that have occurred since the 1970s are almost on the level of science fiction. Nevertheless, the comparatively simple design of the Waffle Racer will always endure as a symbol of Nike's innovation. Besides, the unimaginable is a two way street. If the designers of the 1970s couldn't conceive of modern advancements, today's designers have never had to pour raw materials into a kitchen appliance, trying to come up with the next stage in running shoe evolution.
Here, the classic silhouette gets a taste of modern life, as the classic, lightweight nylon moccasin inspired upper and waffle outsole are outfitted with an updated form of foam cushioning.
