Social Status x Nike Waffle One
Barely a day after presenting the collaboration A MA MANIERE x Jordan Brand (article available HERE), another shop of James Whitner’s conglomerate « Whitaker Group » unveils a project developed with the giant Nike. SOCIAL STATUS brought its touch to the brand new Waffle One silhouette.
The newcomer takes up several elements of the Waffle line, which was a real success for Nike in the 1970s. It also features modern design touches from recent collaborations, including the LDWaffle by Sacai and the Daybreak by UNDERCOVER.
This shoe revisited by SOCIAL STATUS combines modernity and retro look, while adopting a used style. It consists of a semi-translucent TPU upper in faded bronze, complemented by white suede overlays. To affirm the design, the laces and the visible seams of the collar are also dressed in bronze. A nice touch of contrast is provided by the washed black side Swoosh and the two-piece heel clip in metallic green in two different shades. An orange mini Swoosh is concealed under the heel overlay. The whole is based on a yellow patinated EVA foam midsole that adds an aged look. A black rubber outsole with a waffle traction pattern adds the finishing touch.
The Social Status x Nike Waffle One will be released in 2021 exclusively on socialstatus.com. More info coming soon, stay tuned !
