Description

The Waffle II is an updated version of the first Waffle Trainer with a wider heel flare and padded Achilles protectors. The iconic waffle was named for the patented waffle iron-like pattern of the rubber outsole which Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman developed after being inspired by his wife’s waffle iron. The raised grid of polygon nubs increased stabilization with gripping edges that improved traction on multiple surfaces, without the need for metal spikes. Nylon used for the upper created light-weight durability.


  • An original Waffle II from 1979.
  • Dark blue nylon upper and suede heel counter, orange Swoosh and heel tab with bold Nike lettering.
  • Insoles feature vibrant blue Spenco sockliners.
  • Nike black and orange logo tongue tags.
  • Waffle soles labeled with two US patents 3793750 for the waffle nubs on the outsoles and 4098011 for the pattern at the back of the soles under the heel. 
  • Style Number: 2243
