Among the elements that separates the Nike Roshe Run SneakerBoot from the earlier Mids or even the original mesh versions is the variety of loops that make these feel decidedly more outdoorsy. The leather eyelets are obvious, but it’s the tongue and heel ribbons as used for lacing and pulling the shoe on, respectively, that look to be subject to the most augmentation. As we see in our first in-depth look at this Dark Loden Roshe SneakerBoot, these strips of fabric can accommodate a variety of patterns that take the colorway to a whole new level. On this particular pair, a white/black angular pattern adds some serious contrast to the otherwise Dark Loden upper, and gives these a much different feel than your average earthy upper/blaze orange accent fall release. Let us know how these compare to the subtler diagonal striping at work on most of the Nike Roshe Run SneakerBoots we’ve seen so far and stick with Sneaker News to find out what comes next.
