The Nike Waffle Racer is Reborn in Women’s Exclusive Iteration

July 23, 2020 - The Nike Waffle Racer, which cemented Nike’s place at the forefront of running innovation, returns in 2020 with a sleek and modernized women’s silhouette for everyday wear. 

The new iteration, the Nike Women’s Waffle Racer 2X, takes notes from the OG’s pioneering effort to find an adaptable outsole and is redesigned with a slimmer construction for the shape and proportion of a woman’s heel. Coupling the classic design aspects with amplified characteristics (see the larger waffle pattern outsole), the Nike Women’s Waffle Racer 2X employs an inside-out design ethos on the upper to showcase the original construction and incorporates webbing as a subtle nod to the first edition. The chrome tape featured on the lead colorway is a futuristic play on the classic tongue box stitch. The shoe also highlights the patent number of the OG version (3793750) and a quote from co-founder Bill Bowerman ingrained in the design as nods to the classic model.

The Nike Women’s Waffle Racer 2X is available now on nike.com and the Nike App.
