It’s rare to see a new silhouette so universally loved. But when the Nike Roshe Run dropped in 2012, it sold out during its first run. Designed by Dylan Raasch, the shoe was everything anyone could want in an athleisure piece. (The use of the “Run” name has always been a source of irony.) Before launching, the Swoosh went to great lengths to make sure they got it right by revising the outsole 16 times as well as making a ridiculous 50 changes to the upper. Eventually they landed on something versatile enough to take the game over.
The latest “Shoeflake” Game Plan presented by Champs Sports revolves around a black and grey colorway of the Roshe Run, a sneaker that’s available right now. Though the Roshe Run is generally considered a perfect silhouette for those warm summer months spent at cookouts and on the beach, it actually couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. With the weather turning on us and the holidays here, a pair of black shoes that are affordable, stylish, and versatile is a must.
Complete the fit with a graphic Tee from the Swoosh, as well as hoodie and full fit options and the all-black look will have you flossing on all of your friends.
From the Roshe to the adidas ZX Flux Prism edition, there are a number of dope options this month. Just a few years old, the Roshe Run is already considered a worthy successor in Nike’s line of incredible lifestyle sneakers. This holiday season, storm the comp with this all-black version available at Champs Sports.
