Peanut butter and jelly. Lois Lane and Superman. Breakfast and Nike. Did you raise your eyebrows at that last one? Hear us out. Nike’s newest sneaker is inspired by another classic pairing: chicken and waffles. With a waffle-like texture and the illusion of syrup dripping on the iconic swoosh, these kicks are something we’d totally rock at brunch—hell, we’re getting hungry just looking at them. (Fun fact: The soles of the first pair of Nike shoes were made using a waffle iron as a mold—crazy, we know.) At first, these sneakers seemed like an elaborate April Fools' Day prank, but sneakerheads started scooping them up April 2, meaning you can get a pair of the finger-lickin' good kicks too.
