Who isn’t a fan of Nike? From their sports collection to lifestyle wear, Nike has always made the greatest sneakers. I’ve always gravitated so much towards their simple yet classic aesthetics. More than fit and aesthetics, Nike has also become a staple of cultural iconography. Whether it’s through advertising, music or sports, Nike have cultured a dedicated and growing audience. And I have to admit I’m one of their biggest fan.
Having said all that, it was such a privilege to be a part of the Nike’s newly launched sneaker Nike Roshe Campaign.
Somewhere in the fall of 2010, Nike designer, Dylan Raasch began to develop a unique running inspired lifestyle lifestyle-sneaker. Influenced by the principles of Zen Buddhism, the shoe’s design and the name directly represent the simplicity that’s best embodied by a Zen master – also known as a Roshi.
The aesthetic of the Nike Roshe, if you look closely, is directly inspired by the visual of a Zen master meditating in his Zen garden, right down to the detail of the sole, which represents the stepping stone pattern of the garden. It is incredibly light and minimal and that’s one feature which strikes me the most!
Here’s my rendition on how I’d like to sway my feet away with my newly owned pair Nike Roshe Flyknit.
