Very few sneakers crack the exclusive and guarded list of ‘must-have’. There are certain footwear releases that hold that incredible nostalgic value or that heaviness of “whoa”, but very few carry that ‘no-brainer’ status like the Nike Roshe Run does – and we’ll tell you why. It’s the perfect balance of summer-time freedom and trendy design, combining the demands of the lifestyle-sneaker crowd with minimalist construction that won’t keep your feet in a sweaty mess. As important as keeping your feet cool and calm is that it’ll keep your wallet nice and fat, because the Roshe only runs you an mind-boggling seventy dollars. That’s exactly what Nike Sportswear footwear designer Dylan Raasch set out to accomplish when he focused on bringing style and value to such an inexpensive (by Nike’s standards) shoe. Sneaker rotations worldwide are begging for a new addition like the Roshe, so hop to it and check out a great interview with Raash over at How To Make It.

I would love to see these put into production with black soles and for other shoes in the Nike lineup. Throw these into NIKEid maybe? Overall, still an aesthetically pleasing shoe that won't hurt the pockets.

^ as for running i think theyll last as long as a mayfly with a free type of feel. But like its conception it was a runner-lifestyle hybrid. Basically a running inspiration with the ability to run but probably for casualwalking or "chilling"
