For those whose love of Southern cuisine knows no bounds, there is now a pair of Nike sneakers inspired by chicken and waffles. Looking almost good enough to eat, these kicks put a creative twist on the tasty comfort food.

The new cuisine-inspired sneakers are part of the Nike SB Dunk High Collection and they consists of a canvas cloth base that mimics the color and texture of a waffle. The side of the sneakers features the classic Nike swish decorated with tiny drops of syrup, while the insoles feature tiny illustrations of the popular Southern dish.

While the idea of sneakers inspired by chicken and waffles may sound unusual, this is not the first time the brand has experimented with food-themed merchandise. Nike has already produced sneakers that resemble dishes such as strawberry cheesecake, macarons and an English dessert called an Eton Mess.
