Lost in the recent fervor over Kanye West‘s new collection at adidas, as well as Team 3-Stripes’ solid run over the second half of 2014, is the fact that the Nike Roshe Run is still here. And it’s still as hot as ever.
Available now at Champs Sports are the next colorways for one of the top shoes of the past five years. Actually, you can probably already argue that the Roshe Run deserves recognition next to all-time classics like the Air Force 1, Air Max 95, and Air Trainer 1. But either way, camo designs have always fit with this sneaker. This time they’re here in maroon, sky blue, and grey designs, all three of them sporting white outsoles and colored inner lining.
This is a sneaker that’s perfect for spring, as it is still trending in pop culture in part because it’s versatile enough to rock with just about anything. It is a product of more than two years of work, including 16 outsole revisions and a ridiculous 50 changes to the upper. It’s been released so many times in so many different colors and versions that even the most spirited collectors won’t have the entire run, and upon its initial release, it was so beloved that adidas’ ZX Flux is now considered its sequel despite the fact that the Flux — on its own — was one of the best shoes of 2014. That alone should tell you how much love the Roshe gets.
We’ve seen camo drops from this silhouette before. They’ve never looked better, though. Cash in your swagger for an upgrade before the weather gets really nice, and get yourself laced for spring.
