Hello, Chicken and Waffles Nikes

Nike got a lot of attention in the last week or so for its new self-lacing shoes, but you know what I have to say to that?

Step aside, self-lacing Nikes, and hello chicken and waffle Nikes.

Nike SB, the company’s skateboarding line Just announced a new edition of its Dunk High sneakers, which are designed to mimic chicken and waffles.

No, for real. Chicken and waffles is a thing.

Enough of a thing that these shoes feature a tan waffled texture and what appears to be syrup dripping down the swoosh.

Previous models of the Dunk line have been inspired by such things as lobsters, tweed and the number 13.

Admit it, you kind of want to work there.
