It’s been a long time coming, and today Nike has officially unveiled the sequel to the massively popular Roshe.
Designed by Dylan Raasch, whose surname helped inspire the Roshe’s name, the Roshe Two places an emphasis on three key elements of functionality; underfoot comfort, upper comfort and long-lasting comfort.
“[Footwear] insoles were initially used to cover up stitching at the bottom of the shoe. Now, they are the first layer of a cushioning system,” Raasch said of the Roshe Two’s underfoot tooling, which utilizes a dual-density memory foam insole and a lightweight, cored outsole.
Meanwhile, Raasch and his team also focused on the Roshe Two’s upper, which will be available in both Flyknit and mesh-based constructions. “[All-day footwear] should basically be an adaptive glove for your feet,” Raasch said.
One of the most important goals in designing the Roshe Two was to find a setup that would allow for all-day comfort. To achieve this, the Roshe Two is built with a stretchy, breathable upper that will accommodate the wearer’s foot as it swells and sweats throughout the day and a supportive midsole.
The Nike Roshe Two Flyknit will launch internationally via the Nike Tech Book on Aug. 25, with debut colorways including the women’s black/blue/green and men’s black/red/blue styles seen here.
Next month, the North American launch and the release of the women’s gray and men’s olive mesh colorways will take place on Sept. 1 on Nike SNKRS and the Nike Tech Book.
