The term Roshe (Roshi) is given to Zen masters. The Nike Roshe Run sneakers are definitely Zen. The perfect blend of comfort, style and performance. The Roshe Run has hit legendary status since its Fall 2011 original release. The sneaker was originally created with a $70 price point in mind. The Roshe Run has managed to captivate both sneakerheads and casual shoppers, which is no small feat. Crisp Culture has put together a list of the Top 10 Roshe Runs thus far. Comment below if we missed any! Honorable Mentions go out to the ‘Supremo’ and ‘Cork’ Roshe Run customs, but this list is strictly Nike releases only.
1. Nike Roshe Run ‘Safari Pack’
The safari pack originally released on June 28th, 2013 for a retail price of $80. The sneakers sold out quickly, and the Crystal Mint colorway was extremely popular. These Nike Roshe Runs are simply the best yet. Look for them on eBay.com for around $150 depending on the colorway.
2. Nike Roshe Run FB ‘Leopard’
The Nike Roshe Run FB Leopard saw a very limited release, and sold out quickly due to popular demand. The Leopard sneakers are definitely flashy, but are great nonetheless. The Nike Roshe Run FB Leopard is available online at eBay.com for around $175.
3. Nike Roshe Run ‘Two-Faced Pack’
The Two-Faced pack originally dropped back on February 15th, 2013. The mix-match of colors makes this a classic Roshe Run release. The Two-Faced Roshe Runs inspired Nike to create further Roshe Runs with contrasting colors.
4. Nike WMNS Roshe Run PWM N7
Nike collaborated with Pendleton Woolen Mills to create a Roshe Run sneaker to benefit the Nike N7 Fund. Good to see a portion of the proceed going to charity for this release. The Nike x Pendleton Roshe Runs originally released on October 26th, 2013 for $85. Pendleton wools are available at the NIKEiD site for a limited time to customize your own version of the Roshe Runs.
5. NIKEiD WMNS Roshe Run x Liberty London
Liberty London teamed up with Nike to release their fabrics online for NIKEiD. The fully customizable Liberty Roshe Runs were yet another stylish WMNS Roshe Run shoe. The Liberty London fabrics are no longer available at Nike.com for Roshe Run sneakers.
6. Nike Roshe Run ‘Dynamic Flywire Pack’
The Roshe Run looks great with Nike Flywire technology. The Nike Roshe Run Dynamic Flywire sneakers are still available online at eBay.com through resellers for approximately $125.
7. Nike WMNS Roshe Run ‘Metric’
Some of the best Roshe Runs are just for the ladies. The black geometric synthetic paneled upper makes this shoe unique. The Nike Roshe Run Metric originally released on May 4th, 2013. This shoe is difficult to find as most stock has dried up, but you can occasionally find some listed on eBay.com for around $140.
8. Nike Roshe Run ‘Marble Pack’
The Nike Roshe Run Marble Pack adds a cool touch to the simple sneakers. These shoes originally launched on October 5th, 2013 for $80. By adding the marble sole to the Roshe Run it gives the sneakers a fresh new look. The Roshe Run Marble is still in stock at Nike.com.
9. Nike Roshe Run ‘Camo Pack’
The Hero Blue colorway of the Nike Roshe Run Camo Pack is a classic. Get the matching Nike Windrunner and you are in business. Look for the Nike Roshe Run Hero Blue Tiger Camo sneakers online at eBay.com for around $100.
10. Nike WMNS Roshe Run Woven Rainbow
A unique take on the Roshe Run. The Nike Roshe Run Woven ‘Rainbow’ sneaker completely reinvents the original design. The upper shoe is designed with thick rainbow ribbons. The woven ribbon Roshe Runs featured an all black version as well. These deadstock sneakers can still be found online at eBay.com for under $100.
