Through kitchen experimentation, Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman created one of the Swoosh’s most significant sneakers: the Nike Waffle. However, since its original inception, the model has undergone a variety of changes, both in design and in material construction. With the Sacai collaborations creating a modern resurgence for the sneaker, Nike looks to cook-up more Waffles, this time in the D/MS/X model.
Staying true to its classic silhouette, this iteration of late ‘70s sneaker features a runner profile. The forefoot is mapped in “Forest Green” suede, which transitions to the canvas through the lace-guards. A black Swoosh overlay is prominently displayed across a grey nylon-like material. Additionally, a bright orange hue finds itself streaking across the sneaker’s midsole, while also being found on all “D/MS/X” branding. The design is finished with an exposed foam tongue, an elevated pointed midsole, and a waffle traction outsole.
The Nike Waffle D/MS/X “Forest Green” looks to release in the near future for $145 on Nike.com. Early pairs have also surfaced on eBay.com, so head over the second-hand platform to cop yours.
