Phil Knight’s ‘Shoe Dog’ Inspired This Nike Waffle Trainer 2 Colorway

In 2016, Nike co-founder Phil Knight released his memoir titled “Shoe Dog” which dove deeper into his world travels and the trials and tribulations of building Nike into the business it is today. In this piece of literature, Hawaii and its inaugural Honolulu Marathon that was held in 1973 is often a point of reference, and so Nike has crafted a special Waffle Trainer 2 S.D that’s inspired by the island destination.”Beach-y” is arguably the best adjective to describe these kicks as its nylon base panels are completely submerged in a “Pearl White” hue which one can argue references the paradise state’s sandy shores. A light “Grain” hue follows suit on the suede overlays along with “Laser Blue” accents that tap the Swooshes, liners and heel overlays. To further express its Hawaiian motif, these feature flight ticket-inspired notations embedded into the heels. Additionally, Phil Knight’s signature is printed onto the midsoles of the medial sides, and the left foot’s insole spells out various elements of the tropical land such as “beach”, “buildings”, “swaying palms” and “rock and roll”.Parties who are interested in beefing up their collection with these can find them releasing via Nike Japan for ¥12,100 (approx. $110 USD).On the hunt for more sneaker news?
