Virgil Abloh's recent Off-White x Nike "Queen" collection for Serena Williams is apparently just the beginning of the designer's women's-focused output with the Swoosh.
According to leaker py_rates, Abloh will explore new territory in 2019 with a three-sneaker women's Waffle Racer pack. The range is expected to include "Black/Fuchsia/White," "White/Electric Green/Black," and "Vivid Sky/Black/Electric Green" colorways, although no images or renders are available at this time.
py_rates goes on to state that the three Waffle Racers are part of a wider women's Off-White x Nike collection which will include more footwear and apparel. The women's Off-White x Nike Waffle Racers are expected to drop in May 2019.
First introduced in 1973, the Waffle Racer was one of Nike's most influential early models and gets its name from its sole, which was famously invented by co-founder Bill Bowerman using a waffle iron. A 2017 Waffle Racer release is pictured below for reference.
UPDATE (05/21): The first images of the upcoming Off-White x Nike Waffle Racer have surfaced in a "White/Black/Electric Green" colorway, courtesy of @pyleaks on Twitter. The track-inspired women's design resembles the recently-announced Zoom Terra Kiger 5 collab from Abloh that is hitting stores in late June with a similar lacing setup, branding hits, and track spike bottoms. Pairs are expected to retail at $150. A release date has yet to be announced.

UPDATE (06/26): Nearly one month removed from the last look, a third Off-White x Nike Waffle Racer colorway has emerged courtesy of @pyleaks in "Vivid Sky/Electric Green/Black." Expect this pair to arrive this holiday season alongside the two previously previewed styles.
