What’s more comfortable than the Nike Roshe Two? Its Flyknit version, of course!
The successor to the ever-popular Roshe Run will soon be offered in a woven variant. Dubbed as the Roshe Two Flyknit, the upcoming sneaker will feature rows of knit along the upper that shift colors with each step the wearer takes.
As per Nike.com, the Roshe Two Flyknit is as lightweight and flexible as the Roshe Run. It has three layers of cushioning for maximum impact absorption and energy return. The sneaker is perfect for those who value comfort and minimalistic design.
The Roshe Two Flyknit will release on Thursday, September 1. It will be available in Men’s and Women’s sizes, priced at $130.
Color options for the gents include Bright Crimson/Clear Jade, Dark Grey/Gamma Blue and College Navy/Squadron Blue. The ladies can go with Black/Photo Blue, String/Neutral Olive or Dark Grey/Pure Platinum.
If $130 is too steep for you, the original Roshe Two is a cheaper option at $90. Its tech specs include a sock-like construction, a mix of neoprene and woven material, Hyperfuse swooshes and an updated Phylon midsole. The preliminary colorways of the Roshe Two are Midnight Navy, Gym Red, Light Iron Ore, Atomic Pink, Iguana and Copa.
There have been debates regarding the real purpose of Nike’s Roshe series. The first model was named the Roshe Run. This had many believing that it was meant for the tracks. Sneaker experts disagree. They claimed that Roshes are lifestyle kicks which can occasionally be used for running.
Joe Sherman of Complex Sneakers noted that Roshes are not meant for serious runners. Wearers can still run in them, but they should only do so if they have no other option. They are best-suited on tracks and artificial turfs. On the other hand, they wear down easily on pavement and park trails.
