Featuring a Phylon midsole and a Waffle sole that mimics stepping stones in a traditional Zen garden, as well as a full mesh upper, your feet will be giving you dap once you lace up the Roshe Run. It’s extremely light and breathable, and offers the chance to roll without socks on. Among my close friends, most of them never bother with socks when it comes to this shoe.
Once the weather turns cold, that’s another story. But for now, the Roshe Run is basically a dressed-down sneaker that doesn’t really feel dressed-down.

As a hard-working bachelor, grabbing a stylish shoe that you can cop for anywhere from $50 to $85 is a welcome sight. When it first dropped in 2012, the Roshe Run retailed for $70 and since then, the prices have stayed pretty consistent. In a way, it’s taken the place of the Air Force 1, another simplistic, versatile shoe that offered a lot of the “cool” factor for a lot less money.

It took almost no time at all for the Nike Roshe Run to gain a following among the public. In fact, it really cornered the market on racer/runner trainers, forcing other companies to come up with their own versions over the last two years. The minimalistic approach, the clean upper, the plain midsole, the breathable feel, this shoe is absolutely perfect for the summer, and this weekend at Champs Sports yet another new colorway will be dropping.
To celebrate the release of the “Cloud Print” Roshe Run, here are five reasons why this racer is the perfect shoe for the hot summer months.
