The phrase ‘Nike Solar Soft‘ has heretofore referred to an HTM sandal whose heavily perforated injection-molded design has drawn comparisons to Crocs slip-ons. Here in America, you can find a pair of Crocs knockoffs at countless stores once the weather’s right, but the Solar Soft has been totally AWOL in favor of AP-exclusive releases. Will the new Nike Solarsoft Waffle Cruiser meet with the same fate? This low-profile look for summer is based on the classic Waffle Racer, but features a collapsable heel that effectively changes these from an old school runner redux to a fashionable slip-on sandal. Click through to get a look at the first three that just hit Nike Harajuku and stick with Sneaker News for word on a possible US release.
