Ask for a Waffle House in San Antonio and you will get *checks news release* a collaboration with adidas for waffle-inspired shoes.

Sorry, San Antonio. We’re still not getting a Waffle House, but maybe these drippy new adidas golf shoes inspired by the chain’s signature dish smothered in syrup will hold you off.

These limited edition TOUR360 22 x Waffle House shoes will be available in stores, the website and app on Thursday, April 7, in both men and women sizes, according to a news release.

The base color of this shoe is an off-white that adidas says resembles waffle batter with strips of leather on the sides containing the signature grid style of a waffle. The shoes also feature special yellow sock liners with both the adidas and Waffle House logos.

Beneath the shoes are transparent outsoles filled with a syrup “drip.”

If you drink syrup out of this shoe is it still considered a shoey?

“We couldn’t have asked for a better marriage between our signature waffles, the adidas TOUR360 22 golf shoe and our signature restaurants,” said Walt Ehmer, Waffle House president and CEO, in a news release.

Out of the 1,900 stores Georgia-based Waffle House has in the U.S. there still isn’t one in San Antonio. It’s not like we haven’t asked.

There is a Twitter account dedicated to tweeting at Waffle House and retweeting almost anything having anything to do with diner chain. I wouldn’t be surprised if you clicked on this article because it was liked or retweeted by the account.

Waffle House used to have three locations here in San Antonio, including one property at Rittiman Plaza that it sold to Bill Miller Bar-B-Q in the early ’80s, according to Bexar County records.

But I guess we’ll have to settle with the shoes for now. Keep dreaming, @WaffleHouseInSA.
