Non Cooking Fact

Nike's waffle sneakers were originally made with a waffle iron. Bill Bowerman one of the owners of Nike got the idea while watching his wife make waffles for breakfast. He experimented with several different substances. Finally he tried rubber and the waffle outsole was born. He believes the grid like pattern would make the sneaker sturdier.
