The "Waffle" Dunk Low is a delicious visual feast, starting with its sumptuous golden-brown suede upper that perfectly mimics the color of a freshly cooked waffle. The design gets even tastier with intricate waffle-iron detailing adorning the midfoot, adding an authentic touch that will delight fans of both footwear and flapjacks.
Nike's homage to the waffle doesn't end with the exterior. The tongue and insoles feature a gridded print reminiscent of the iconic breakfast food, enhancing the theme and offering a surprise detail for those who take a closer peek. Creamy laces and Swoosh overlays complement the golden-brown hues, reminiscent of butter melting over warm waffles.
Underfoot, the sneaker is finished with a syrupy sole unit, a delightful mix of gum and tan that not only nods to the sticky, sweet topping but also provides durable traction. This delicious design element ensures that the "Waffle" Dunk Low looks as good as it would taste if it were edible.
Of course, this isn't the only "Waffle" Dunk in Swoosh history, with Nike SB taking a more literal approach on a Dunk High back in 2016.
