Description

Marketed as, “The Evolution of the Revolution,” LDV evolved from the revolutionary LD-1000 with adjustments to the shape of heel and last. The use of nylon mesh was groundbreaking, creating one of the first breathable uppers. 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 polygon stud technology increased stabilization with gripping edges that improved traction.

  • Yellow mesh and suede upper with vibrant blue leather heel tab and Swoosh with thick midsoles.
  • Leather liners and Spenco sockliner insoles.
  • Nike black and orange logo tongue tags.
  • Waffle soles are labeled with two US patents - 3793750 for the waffle nub soles and 4098011 for the pattern at the back of the soles under the heel. 
  • Includes an original Nike LDV advertisement.
  • Original shoebox and receipt from 1980.
