Introducing our new collaboration with the athletic shoe innovator that's been practically running the world since 1971. The Waffle Racer, originally introduced in 1974, is named after its breakthrough rubber treads (an early prototype was made with rubber poured into a waffle iron). This is an exact replica of the vintage style, from the waffle-pattern treads to the mix of nylon and suede. The coolest thing? J.Crew is the only place you'll find these in the whole country.
