Earlier this year we saw the Nike Roshe Run for the first time. Not long after its first appearance, the Roshe Run appeared in a women's version. The international success of the Roshe Run as a whole was amazing, and the interest in them locally began to grow.
The Roshe Run was designed by Daniel Raasch, who designed the sneaker around the concept of Zen and therefore simplicity. The names inspiration comes from the title which is given to a Zen master, "Roshi". He designed the sneaker to be as versatile as possible, and it can therefore be worn barefoot, or with socks. There are many characteristics of the Roshe Run which relate to the Zen concept, as follows:
- The outsole is comprised of Nike's natural motion waffle pattern, which resembles stepping stones in the Zen garden.
- The insole design resembles a freshly raked Zen rock garden.
- The original Iguana colourway was inspired by the natural dark green moss and leaves from a Zen garden.
We have the mens Wolf Grey / Speed Yellow, and Dark Royal Blue / Tm Orange, as well as the womens Black / Palest Purple and Soar / Ice Blue colourways available.
