The Nike Swoosh is easily one of the most iconic brand logos known to mankind, and 2021 marks its 50th anniversary. Graphic designer Carolyn Davidson introduced the insignia back in 1971, and to celebrate its five decades of existence, the Nike team has built out a wide array of “First Use” colorways. Along with a plethora of Dunk Highs comes this newly unveiled orange Waffle Trainer 2 makeup.

Its upper build primarily mixes between two materials including a canvas and a shaggy suede. Both are treated with a vibrant orange tone, the former of which forms the build of the base while the latter is used for the overlays. Like its release siblings, the checks on the lateral side arrive with just the embroidered borders of the logo and sit above a “First Use June 18, 1971” spell out, while the latter is filled in entirely with white. The laces are doubled up here in sacai-esque fashion and mix between green and white, and come embellished with a gilded Swoosh piece in the middle. Out back, more green hits are applied to the Nike lettering.

These already dropped in over in Japan, but a stateside launch via Nike and other retailers is likely going to occur in the coming months.
