Any self respecting sneakerhead knows by now the story of Bill Bowerman and his waffle iron. The classic tale of American ingenuity and innovation was latched onto early by the storytellers at Nike, and re-imagined as soon as the late 1980’s during Nike’s trainer obsession, where the waffle technology came back in the form of the Nike Air Waffle Trainer. While sneaker technology has obviously progressed leaps and bound since then, the waffled outsole remains a sentimental piece of Swoosh history-and one that still manages to look good in this 2012 retro. Caliroots has two new colorways on deck, a clean white pair with midnight navy on the swoosh, and a darker pair that extends the midnight navy choice to wrap all around the upper. Follow us after the jump for a look at both and let us know which one you’ll be scooping up.
