Between 2001-2005 Nike retro'd quite a large variety of Waffle Racers. Most of them adorned aluminium mesh underlays, something that makes this era of the Racer really stand out, as well as the bold colourways. The Waffle Racer is one of Nike’s longest standing models, originally designed by Bill Bowerman in the 1970s it has seen consistent retros throughout the last few decades. Upon release the Waffle Racer was priced between $21.95 and $24.95, the running shoe, originally made in Japan, had a nylon upper and was first released in a red and white colour scheme. However, the version that quickly became popular with local athletes bore the distinctive yellow and green design of the University of Oregon, while later models also bore the colours of other Californian colleges, such as UCLA. This colourway on this pair is possibly inspired by the 1978 Nike Night Trak - an incredibly rare shoe released by Nike during the rise of disco music. These remain in good overall condition, some age related marks. But again, as you can see from the outsoles, these have barely been worn.
