Known as the groundbreaking Nike silhouette, the Nike Daybreak was equipped with an upper made of nylon and suede, an EVA midsole and a waffle outsole that offers shock absorption and traction in the curve. While a cup insole puts pressure on the entire Foot raised and distributed.
The 1970s are arguably the golden era of Nike shoes, the decade produced some of Nike's most ludicrous running shoes that continue to inspire their designs 40 years later. Similar in design to some of the Oregon-based brand's other classics - namely LDV and Air Tailwind'79 - the Daybreak features an early, revolutionary piece of Nike technology: the waffle outsole.
Only a few brands are left for their outsoles, but as early as the 1970s, the search for a sole that would not lose grip on a variety of surfaces led to the invention of Nike founder Bill Bowerman, which is reflected in the history of the shoe industry: Apparently Came Bill's eureka moment as he sat at the breakfast table over a waffle plate. The waffle iron outsole experimenting with swapping dough for urethane was a turning point, offering adhesive-like grip on a variety of treads.
Here comes the Nike Daybreak "Midnight Navy" with a petrol colored upper. The gray leather overlays and the yellow hit on the heel complete the look perfectly.
