The First Running Shoe
We’re not much for sneakers, but we know a good piece of 70s style when we see it.
This shoe is the legendary Oregon Waffle, courtesy of Nike’s Vintage line. It’s an earnest attempt to recreate their first line of shoes circa 1977, complete with Carter-era nylon (In University of Oregon colors, naturally) and the original sole made on a waffle press. Just a reminder: once upon a time, they were the best kept secret in jogging.
