COMME des GARÇONS, led by the famed designer Rei Kawakubo, again appears to be working alongside Nike. This time on one of the brand’s oldest and most traditional models — the Waffle Racer.
Developed in the early ’70s by Nike founder Bill Bowerman – in part thanks to his wife’s waffle iron – the Waffle Racer emerges today in a daunting noir sensibility, customary for current CDG x Swoosh collaborations. Mixed material construction adorns the low-cut runner while its rear is contrast in white with CDG branding.
No release details for the COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Waffle Racer are readily available. Stay tuned.
