nike vintage waffle racer x j.crew

they’ve gone and done it again.  j. crew has partnered with a classic brand to offer a classic shoe that we’ve all known and loved.  i’m all for it as long as they’re not marked up like the new balance kicks.  this time they’ve joined forces with nike to bring you the vintage waffle racer.

the waffle design is more than 30 years old.  it was discovered when nike co-founder bill bowerman was trying to find something that would better grip the new track at the university of oregon.  he poured liquid rubber into his wife’s waffle iron and used the results for his new running shoes.  unreal.

i was actually trying to find a pair of these a month or two ago and was going the ebay route.  this partnership came at a good time.  i think i’m going with the red.  you can buy yours here.
