Editor’s Notes: Fashion Houses are known to pay tribute to iconic sneaker silhouettes from time to time. Although never officially communicated, there are enough design similarities between sneakers such as Saint Laurent’s SL/10 and the Nike Air Jordan 1 to make superficial, at the very least, connections.

The same could perhaps be said of Chanel’s new nylon and calfskin sneakers, the rubber outsole of which resembles that of Nike’s legendary Waffle Trainer.

Chanel’s version looks to be an ultra-luxurious version of the Waffle Trainer, featuring materials such as wool, nylon, lambskin, and suede calfskin. Available in four colorways, you can flip through each of them above.

Is the comparison fair? Let us know in the comments.
