Among Nike Sportswear’s many retro running releases in recent years was this spring’s visit from Steve Prefontaine’s signature style, as the Pre Montreal Racer joined the likes of the V-Series, Air Epic and other time-tested styles that came back with the orange Swooshed script tags. Now we see one of those OG Pres referenced by one of NSW’s surprise hit for 2012, as the Nike Roshe Run appears in a USA-inspired colorup blending suede textures with a leather Swoosh. These are expected at select retailers like Crooked Tongues shortly, so have a closer look below and stick with Sneaker News for updates.
While I have to admit I didn't jump on the "hype" surrounding the Roshe Run, this is a good looking colorway of that shoe.
@BestGuest bwahahahah! i was looking for an appropriate name for that suede. "nappy suede" sounds dope & us funny as all hell! kudos
Dude the roshe is HYPE FREE! They sell out because of how simple and comfortable they are, with great colorways...I guess you feel like the new flyknits are hyped up too??
