BLAST FROM THE PAST. We go back in time and revive a true Nike icon. The Nike Waffle Trainer 2 brings back one of the first running shoes designed by co-founder Bill Bowerman. Now made for all-day wear, it still has the legendary Waffle sole (inspired by a waffle iron) for traction. Super comfy and classic, this '70s throwback will become an instant fave for any budding sneakerhead's closet.
Total Traction The studs on the rubber sole are inspired by the iconic Waffle design. First developed for track shoes by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman from a waffle iron in the early '70s, they help provide durable traction. Mixed Textures Leather, suede, and nylon combine for a design that’s lightweight and durable—like the original Waffle Trainer. Cushioned Comfort Soft foam underfoot provides lightweight cushioning with every step. An exposed foam tongue provides extra comfort and an OG feel. The synthetic leather lining around the collar gives a smooth and extra-durable feel.
