Waffle Technology​

Nike's waffle technology is a unique sole design, which was developed by Nike founder Bill Bowerman.

He was inspired to create this innovative sole pattern after he poured liquid rubber into his wife’s waffle iron.

The resulting waffle-patterned sole provided better traction and grip on various surfaces, making it suitable for running shoes. The waffle sole features a grid-like pattern of square or rectangular indentations, resembling the pattern of a waffle, and it made its debut in 1972 with the release of the iconic Nike Waffle Trainer.

If no one thinks you can, then you have to.
