Nike SB Is About To Release A Sneaker Tribute To Chicken And Waffles

If any company has a right to make a sneaker that's an ode to chicken and waffles, it's Nike, which was founded with a shoe whose sole was molded in an actual waffle iron. (The waffle iron is on display at the company's headquarters in Beaverton, OR.) Today comes the news, via Highsnobiety and Sneakernews, that Nike SB's "Waffle" colorway of its popular Dunk model will be available on April 2. Such limited sneaker releases from Nike SB tend to sell out quickly, so you may want to start asking around your Nike SB–approved skate shop as to whether they'll be carrying the shoe next week. (Fair warning: a good skate shop will probably kick you out if you ask.) The waffle pattern and syrup-drenched Swoosh are reasons enough to hunt down this sure to be sought-after sneaker.
