With all of the innovations that Nike has put out there, an extensive list that includes Air, Zoom, Free, Flywire, Foamposite, and many more, it is hard to imagine that one of their first innovations came from a waffle iron. In a stroke of genius, Nike founder Bill Bowerman used his wife’s waffle iron to create an outsole for a running sneaker. This waffle iron concept eventually birthed the Nike Waffle Racer which went on to change the running sneaker landscape forever.
In homage to Bowerman’s ingenious creation, Nike is set to release the Waffle Pack of Nike Air Max 90s. Each of the Waffle Pack Nike Air Max 90s features a “waffle print” on the midsole and a graphic of the “waffle iron man” on the footbed. Included within this pack is the White/Varsity Maize Nike Air Max 90s. The White/Varsity Maize Waffle Pack Nike Air Max 90 features a combo upper of White leather and White mesh sitting on a Black midsole with the Yellow waffle print. The ankle lining also features a Varsity Maize hit.
The White/Varsity Maize Waffle Pack Nike Air Max 90 is set to release in October. Read on for more pics.
