"Nike Waffle Trainer" 2014

Oil on canvas, shrink-wrapped 15" x 15 inches 38cm x 38cm Collection: Mark Parker, CEO Nike Inc, Beaverton, Oregon Olympic track coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman developed the nylon upper and cushion sole in the mid-60’s, and debuted this revolutionary lightweight running shoe in 1974 after abusing his wife’s waffle iron in order to press rubber into a sole that used less rubber and featured durable treads. The Nike Waffle Trainer quickly became the best-selling training shoe in America.
