It often feels like Nike sees into the future with its sneaker designs, and the Nike Waffle Racer is no exception. Balancing similar design features of a retro runner with an all-black upper and clean white sole, the effort is easily accessible and wearable for the sneakerhead — or if you’re a guy who just wants a slick (and brand-new) pair of shoes.
The textile upper wears harder than you would expect, while the Rubber Waffle outsole provides traction and support in conjunction with the memory foam sockliner. The price point is another agreeable feature; compared to exclusive and ultra-rare re-releases and coveted new launches from certain Nike lines, this sneaker is a steal at just $90.
With its clean color combination and agreeable price, it’s a futuristic sneaker upgrade in comparison to flashy garb worn at summer festivals and boardwalks — and that means you need them on your feet just as soon as you get the chance to buy them. – $90
