Nike and J. Crew have joined forces by releasing three vintage sneakers that were originally designed in the early ’70s. The Nike Vintage Collection include replicas of the Waffle Racer, the Tennis Classic AC and the Cortez.
The sole of the Waffle Racer was designed by Bill Bowerman, one of the founders of Nike, by pouring rubber onto his wife’s waffle iron. The waffle iron didn’t survive but the groundbreaking lightweight sole with traction was a fact!!!
Today US-based J. Crew, in a new collaboration with Nike, is releasing the 3 Vintage sneakers.
Have a look, the sneakers can be bought online and vary in the range between 75 and 90 dollars at jcrew.com.
