Publisher Description

What strange household appliance inspired one of the first pairs of Nike sneakers? The co-founder of Nike, Bill Bowerman, was not only a legendary track and field coach, but also a great inventor. While looking for a way to make shoes faster, he was inspired by a particular household appliance....

The waffle maker.

Bowerman was eating breakfast with his wife when he had a flash of genius. "So he got up from the table and went tearing into his lab and got two cans of whatever it is you pour together to make the urethane, and poured them into the waffle iron," his wife explained.


It is this rubber mold that inspired one of Nike's first pairs, which hit the market in 1974. And in 2019, the legendary waffle sneakers were auctioned to an astonishing $475,500!
