Off-White x Nike Waffle Racer SP

Off-White and Nike are back once more with athletics in mind, taking the humble Waffle Racer and thrusting it through a lens of unadulterated aggression. Much like the silhouette’s more recent history, namely its sacai iterations, the pair is loud with the once simplistic tooling almost unrecognizable; upper’s sport a similarly netted film across their entire construction, simulating that of an athlete’s tape across three vastly different colorways. The first, one much more familiar for fans of the high street label, is a black with pink accents whose various tabs and eyelets are struck with a contrasting orange. A much more neutral pair, which forgoes any overt neons, is made of a base of white nylon overlaid by cheeky notes of off white paneling. In a direction entirely at the opposite end of the spectrum, a coinciding bright blue subverts any muted shade save for its dark and spiked outsole. Check out a look at this latest entry into the ongoing partnership below.
