When it comes to fashion, a game of taste rolls into play. Shoes of every variety come out on almost a weekly basis and the competition to win the hearts of sneakerheads gets harder and harder with every release. Nike has been trying to keep up with the game, hitting highs and perhaps some lows with some of its releases. It hasn’t stopped the brand from becoming one of the most common sneaker brands in the world though.
From one collection to another, Nike hits it out of the ballpark each time, making sure to cause a stir in the sneaker market while at it. One collection that has done just that is the Nike Roshe. Nike Roshe sneakers have been making waves in the industry ever since its release just because it’s a shoe that is both elegant and simple. Along with that, it has edged its way to the top of Nike’s most fashion-centric shoe on the list. Also, one doesn’t have to break their bank account to get a pair. Bonus points go to being one of the most comfortable shoes out there, too.
When the Nike Roshe One, then called the Nike Roshe Run, was released back in 2012, there was almost no publicity or promotional campaign for it at all. No announcements, no press releases, no videos or flashy short films, this pair of shoes didn’t even have a celebrity endorsement. With its design and simplicity, Nike let the shoes speak for itself. Six years later and the growth of the collection has not stopped. In fact, a wide variety of Nike Roshe shoes have been steadily coming out.
The shoes under this collection have been released in a variety of colors through the years. Colors like purple, beige, gold, green, black, yellow, white, blue, orange, and silver have only made these lifestyle shoes more interesting and sought after by the sneaker world.
Here are some of the sneakers from the Nike Roshe shoe collection that you should check out.

The designer behind the original Nike Roshe sneaker model is Dylan Raasch who began his career as a level 2 designer for Nike in 2009. He was relatively new to Nike at the time, but today, Raasch is the Nike Air Max Creative Director.
When did the design process for the Nike Roshe sneakers begin?
The design process for the Nike Roshe sneakers collection began in the fall of 2010. Raasch presented an idea that was a little too abstract at the time. Not one to give up, he decided to develop the design he had in mind during his free time.
What brought about the need to come up with the Nike Roshe shoes?
The idea that Raasch had in mind had no brief to it. Raasch was asked to come up with something that could still have quality at a price point that was significantly lower. There were zero limitations and Raasch had the perfect opportunity to come up with something fresh and new.
What were the challenges that came up with the first Nike Roshe sneaker?

When was the first model of the Nike Roshe sneakers collection released?

So what does the Nike Roshe One have that sets it apart from other Nike sneakers?
Here are few things that stand out:
The construction is made up of a pliable two-piece upper.
The bottom of the outsoles had the Nike natural motion waffle print representing stepping stones in a Zen garden.
The insoles mimic a freshly raked Zen garden.
It has a minimal lacing system.
It has a one-piece sole wherein the midsole and rubber bottom are combined.
First colorway: the Nike Roshe One came in the iguana colorway which played with the natural color of dark green moss on off-white rocks in the garden.
