Isn’t it about time that you treat yourself to a pair of the latest Nike Roshe Run, and be the envy of all of you friends, both in and out of the gym? This is a truly innovative shoe for many reasons, one of them being the added height that makes them great for winter wear too.
This comfortable minimalist trainers are new to the market, and are impressing from the start. Combining their lightweight design with their modern style, adding a pair of Roche’s to your collection will give you a great option, whether you need them for your next workout or simply jetting around town.

The Roshe Run comes complete with many of the best features known to be found in Nike running shoes but it certainly does not look like your average athletic trainer. Some of the features that are common to other Nike running shoes that are found in the Roshe Run include:
- Phylon midsole along the entire length of the shoe that provides lightweight cushioning for added comfort.
- Rubber outsole with waffle pattern design that provides for excellent traction even in snow.
- Upper made from synthetic mesh to provide breathability even during long stretches of wear.
Aside from having these particular features, the Roshe Run is quite a bit different from other running shoes from Nike. These are not as low profile, they have a bit more material involved than other running shoes, and they are not designed to offer extra support for individuals with pronation or arch issues.
There are plenty of features in this shoe that make it very comfortable and ideal for everyday wear, including:
- A collar made from padded foam in order to better protect your ankle.
- A four eye lace design for a more secure fit.
- A wide variety of solid colors that make it easy to match up with any workout attire.
- Outsole made from EVA foam for lightweight durability and shock absorption.
- Webbed pull loops in the tongue and heel for easier on and off.
- Sturdy design for use in all different types of weather.
These features certainly make the Nike Roshe Run different from the competition, but some critics mention that they wouldn’t necessarily make for a good running shoe. These reviewers have pointed out that they would feel safer running in something designed more with the frequent runner in mind.
There are a few alternatives for the female athlete who wants a shoe from Nike with a minimalist feel. One of our top recommendations is the Nike Flex 2013 Run, which could be a better option if you want more of a road trainer for your next workout.
The Nike Roshe Run on the other hand is a more stylish running shoe that is suitable to wear in and out of the gym and both before and after your runs. They come in a wide variety of two color combinations which allow for easier matching and the lack of a flashy design makes them ideal to wear anytime. My favorite is the Canyon Grey but some of the other colors include Raspberry Red, Atomic Pink, Medium Olive, Purple Dynasty, Dark Armory Blue, and the always sleek Black.
As you can see, you can really flaunt your individuality with these running shoes, especially if you have more than one pair, but they are probably not the only running shoes you want if you compete or are an avid runner.
Many people have issues running with a shoe that extends higher up the ankle and that is exactly what these are. The extended height is good for protecting the ankle during any type of activity but you will need to be able to get past it if you have never worn such a high shoe for running. If you can get past that then this may be the ultimate athletic trainer for you.
