ORIGINAL STORY (January 29, 2020): Upon revealing a range of collaborative pearl necklaces with Mikimoto, COMME des GARÇONS has now unveiled that its coveted Nike Waffle Racer will be making a comeback soon. Originally making their debut back in 2017, the shoes return with rough edges for a simple, unfinished look.
Arriving in all black, the sneakers sport suede all over, unlike the previous iteration which features a textile upper. Along with the Waffle Racer’s signature pattern on the outsole, the shoe is accentuated with a tonal black Swoosh with frayed raw edges. Finishing off the design are Nike’s logo placed on the tongue tag and bold, white CDG branding at the rear, which can also be found on the insoles.
