Nike Roshe One Print
Back in 2012, one of Nike’s iconic sneaker models dubbed as the Nike Roshe Run was introduced to the public. Nike’s designer Dylan Raasch was the person who authored the Nike Roshe Run silhouette with design inspiration extracted from the Roshi Zen Master. The process of conceptualizing the shoe wasn’t that easy as with the midsole design went through a course of having 16 revisions and the upper layout took over 50 modifications.
Nike then used the name “Roshe” instead of “Roshi” for legal purposes. The pattern on the soles of the shoe was designed to imitate garden stepping stones. The original “Iguana” colorway was also inspired by white rocks and moss commonly used in garden landscaping.
The silhouette was released without any kind of promotion or hype, and was offered at an affordable price. The brand just laid it out to the public and let the product speak for itself. Remarkably, it gained positive reviews from consumers. Its success led the brand to release variations on the colorways and drop some collaborative releases of the silhouette.
In 2015, Nike officially changed the name of the shoe from “Nike Roshe Run” to “Nike Roshe One.” Various Roshe iterations were done to the modest profile, plus a slew of fresh colorways were released. One version of this shoe was the Nike Roshe One Print which is remodeled using series of printed patterns for the upper.
Popular designs of the Nike Roshe One Print sneakers
Nike Roshe One Print grey
With a broad spectrum of graphic layouts already under its belt, the low-top, modest appearing Nike Roshe One Print was up and ready to whip up another printed rendition back in 2014. The updated cut bared a wolf grey coat that granted an appealing expression to the popular silo’s mesh upper, but this time it used a marble-appearing or tie-dye like effect.
Labeled as the Nike Roshe One Print grey, this kick displayed the solid black Swoosh branding on the sides which was contrasted by a gradient grey backdrop. Such pattern was accentuated by black and pink accents and paired up to a white rubber sole. The end product is a best-selling minimalistic winner.
Nike Roshe One Print floral
As Spring kicked off in 2015, Nike unveiled a psychedelic Floral edition of the Roshe One consisting of neon-like prints of blossoming plants and leaves against a solid black mesh slate. The streaks of black, green, and fuchsia flash accents that take up the upper appear even more vibrant with the white Nike Swoosh labeling on the sides and the equally bleached looking midsole.
Nike Roshe One Print aloha
Summer was a perfect time for Nike to launch the Aloha theme for its in-demand Roshe One silhouette. Hawaii’s multicolored floral design was Nike’s way to welcome the warm season in 2015. The flowery accent that blooms on the mid panel of the sneaker creeps against the unicolored mesh backdrop.
One of the iterations had a lighter floral pattern while the rest of the upper was made up in white. The other design is an exact opposite as the spring blossoms are contrasted by a black background. The white Swoosh logos on the lateral and medial sides of both variations compliment the Sail-colored midsole and outsole. Like the other light-bearing selections of this running-inspired kick, the Nike Roshe One Print Aloha had a Solarsoft insole technology and light-bearing midsole construction.
Nike Roshe One Print iguana
After releasing chains of flowery decorations for the much loved Nike sneaker profile, the Beaverton-brand teased its Nike Roshe One loyalists in the middle of 2015 with an obscure, reptile-inspired cover identified as the Iguana colorway.
The triangular graphics that wrap the collar and rear end offer an interesting layering to the clean and straightforward style of the Nike Roshe One Print Iguana. The décor appeared like a geometrical impression on the commonly used military camo pattern.
Nike Roshe One Print black
In 2016, Nike released a women’s version of the Nike Roshe One Print with a black and white full stripe design on the entire cover. This clean and neatly done graffiti-appearing mesh motif sits nicely on a black Phylon midsole that grants adequate cushioning.
True to the original model, this Nike Roshe One Print women’s version is breathable and lightweight. The bold style encourages users to be versatile as it can be worn with or without socks for casual and partly dressed up affairs.
Nike Roshe One Print blue
The brigade blue and black shade inherited the camouflage pattern seen on the 2015 releases, which are presented in alligator green, summit white/black-dark grey-wolf grey, and daring red/black-gym red-team red colorways. The blue iteration came out as another hot item in the Nike Roshe One Print catalog which was unwrapped in 2016.
The mesh material is hardly visible under the navy camouflage pattern that covers the entire upper and tongue. Even the Swoosh logos are brilliantly concealed on the side walls. From afar, this sneaker appears like a painted abstract masterpiece with the tonal blue curves bleeding across the cover, while a black dot sequence fills up the midfoot. The entire canvas is outlined by a clean white midsole.
