Nike® vintage collection Waffle® Racer sneakers
Product Details

The Waffle Racer, originally introduced in 1974, was 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 suede and nylon. The coolest thing: J.Crew is the only place you'll find these in the whole country.

  • Suede, nylon upper.
  • Come with two sets of nylon laces: one white and one that matches the body color of the sneakers.
  • Nylon lining and leather heel pad.
  • Padded footbed.
  • Rubber sole for traction.
  • Import.
Size & Fit Details
  • Unisex sizing: Women, please order one-and-a-half sizes smaller than your regular size.

Nike® vintage collection Waffle® Racer sneakers

Nike® vintage collection Waffle® Racer sneakers is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight summer shoe These shoes are perfect to wear all summer long. They are very lightweight, so it's as if you're barely wearing them. But they also don't have a lot of side padding, which seems to help them breathe on your feet. My usual shoe size is a 9.5US and that's what I ordered here. Couldn't have asked for a better fit. Hopefully they keep continuing to make these shoes, because once these wear out, I will definitely buy another pair! Nice collaboration!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe! Not only is this shoe very stylish and I get compliments on it every time I wear it, it is EXTREMELY comfortable! Worth the purchase, I just wish it came in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Old School Style Sneaker Description says to size down one & a half if female; I did. The shoe has a great comfort factor, but runs narrow. Honestly, I should have sized down two sizes, because although the shoe fits with runners' sock liners, it will be snug with a thicker sock in changing weather. It's not a running type shoe that would last long on a paved track. Not a lot of padding in the sole, but easily remedied. The shoe looks good & was a fun shoe to wear on my recent vacation, up and down river shores, dry creek beds, and even in caves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love J.Crew, please never stop selling these! When my current pair is completely worn out, I want to buy another. These are essentially the perfect pair of sneakers. The navy/white combo goes with literally everything and looks very chic with an all black look. Unlike other trendy statement sneakers these don't add any bulk to your look so it stays sleek and pared down. (which is nice for a woman who has curves and/or short legs!) They're comfortable and light weight. They're holding up well. I wore them constantly last summer and fall and aside from the sole being worn down from so much NYC walking, they're still completely wearable.
