Do waffle shoes have a soul?

Sometimes reading Yahoo! News is like trying to untangle every spaghetti strand in a bowl of pasta. Words seem to be strewn about in a totally random fashion, and if you are able to put them in the correct order you’ll like find a homophonic error:

waffle soul news

I was able to rearrange those three words into “waffle soul shoe,” but I think it should be “waffle sole shoe.” As for the rest of the sentence? I’m totally clueless.
