Nike Waffle Trainer 2 SE Men's Shoes Staying true to the timeless track style you love, the Nike Waffle Trainer 2 brings you the original look of heritage Nike running shoes. Equipped with the iconic Waffle outsole, throwback Swoosh logo and old-school suede accents, it's a true blast from the past. Swapping rubber for batter on an old waffle iron, Nike founder Bill Bowerman created the Waffle outsole. It not only delivers traction, durability and heritage style—it proves greatness is in the everyday. Suede and durable textile combine for a design that’s lightweight and durable. Exposed foam on the tongue gives a DIY aesthetic combined with a soft feel. Soft foam underfoot gives you lightweight cushioning. Lining around the collar brings a smooth feel that's extra durable.
