The Vans Waffle Sole coaster really exemplifies the genesis of an idea. Not only have waffles inspired a shoe sole design, but that very shoe sole design has now inspired the existence of a similarly patterned table coaster.
These coasters are made from rubber and feature the shoe company's signature logo. They come in two varieties: circular and square just like actual waffles! The pattern on the Vans Waffle Sole coaster is also split in half to show a variety of waffle love as they further mimic patterns found on waffles. The rubbery grip has functional properties as it ensures that the coasters will not slip and slide under wet or rainy conditions.
You can purchase your Vans Waffle Sole coaster at the Off The Hook store located in Montreal, Quebec.
