These were THE shoe of /r/Sneakers at one point


gweilo

Yeah! Was it about 4 years ago? I remember it was at the beginning of yeezys and way before off white was a thing.


akushdakyng

I’ve been in this sub for about 4-5 years. I don’t remember the roshes, but boy do I remember 4 years ago when this sub was just ultraboost everything


Al_Pateemo

Unlike now where it’s all AJ1 of course


Not_Blitzcrank

Nah maybe 2013?


northboundcentreriot

I just finished high school and got these ugly ass Roshes and wore them as beaters. 2014.


Zombietitties

14/15, I graduated in 14 and remember having a pair around the height of their popularity after grad


AustinEatsBabies

These shoes ran my high school in like 2012


LustForLife

they ran everywhere for like a year or two. everyone seemed to have one.


LibertyPrimeExample

OP is the same type of person that posts a popular sneaker and calls it "slept on" or "underrated".


Peelyourmind

Or they just haven’t been around long enough to remember when everyone loved Roshes. I wasn’t at a place where I could collect when they were a meme, personally. Only know about it because people talk about that period.


Sire777

I loved my roshes. I had an all black pair for work and I wore them till my toes put a hole in them.


Jsketch01

Same!! I had a squadron blue pair for the gym, and I wore them til they holes in the front haha.


Sire777

I love them. And i have the friends/family employee discount so I got them for like 50 bucks. I had no problem replacing them when they went out for that price. Might have to get another pair now that I think of it


mooseknucklemaster

You'd go to any local sneaker meet up or trade and all the people there were wearing Roshe Runs lmao


earoar

That was a long time ago, like pre ultra boost.


mooseknucklemaster

Kanye was still with Nike, Off White didn't exist, and Travis was still unknown. Foams and Jeremy Scott Adidas were some of the more coveted shoes and Jordans were like the top shoes. Air Mags, What The Dunks, and Paranormans were some of the rarest and craziest ones people wanted around then, too.


flyingcrayons

Lebron 9’s and KD4’s were also insanely popular i worked at a theme park summer of 2012 and probably saw every colorway of those 2 at some point that summer


[deleted]

Most dunks were dumb cheap at this point though, I remember buying a pair of Heineken dunks back in the day for like 7g of weed and $200 sold them for $800 and thought I had the come up of a lifetime. Should’ve fucking kept them.


[deleted]

Ahhh, those were the days


[deleted]

This was in the 2012-2014 era of sneakers


[deleted]

Oh yeah I remember. This was when I was in high school, using money from my part time job at a pizza place to cop retros. Maybe it’s just nostalgia but I look back at those times pretty fondly


LustForLife

i remember everyone was going hard for the zx fluxes from adidas, especially the prism/multicolor colorway


Dparry533

I’ve been in love with foamposites ever since I first saw a pair of fighter jet foams in 8th grade. Those and the weathermans will always have a special place in my heart.


SteezVanNoten

Don't forget the same few pairs of sample Lebrons that got passed around like hot potato 😂


rethousands

Man I'm getting old... time just slips you by. I still remember roshes as if it was yesterday


earoar

Bro I was wearing them in elementary school.


TheMightySloth

I didn't think I would find out I'm old via a message board about shoes but here we are.


rethousands

They call reddit an app now lmao


FiveWizz

I swear it's not that deep bro


bhare418

It’s been so long (2014 was 6 years ago) since then it’s totally conceivable OP had 0 clue how popular this once were


PhoneSteveGaveToTony

“Anyone else like AJ1’s???”


mochaha

Can anyone ID ?


darule05

Flyknit Roshe, I’m guessing the c/w is ‘Calypso’... if it’s the same as the OG release.


hayesmartin

I had a wolf gray pair that i lace swapped...wore those things to death. Such a simple design but so esthetic. I remember them being super light weight back then too, i could wear them untied a be fine all day.


backxstab

These were the Ultraboosts before Ultraboosts. Also they're cheap af.


[deleted]

[удалено]


peacenchemicals

So true. I still wear my version ones. After that Roshes kept getting uglier and uglier and weirder


OWNAGE619

The Calypso and Solar Red version ones were all the hype.


caceres_matias

I remember seeing Calypsos on Tumblr and digging them sooo much. Well, these are pretty simmilar so that’s why I decided to bought them a few years ago


stackdatdough

Before all the Nike stores shit down(beginning of March), I was at a clearance store and the calypsos were 49.99 with 30% off. Crazy how times have changed


Macsalwayshigh

I believe that was the second U.S. release of the Calypso, before that it was a regional exclusive


stackdatdough

Yeah. It was definitely the general release Edit: I definitely wouldn’t expect a shoe that released more than 5 years ago to still be at the outlet


Bamres

I remember when the Calypso had resale value and were sold for like 300-400! damn


Saucy_Totchie

Nike does that shit all the time. They get a cool silhouette that becomes a hit. Then they release an over designed v2 and ruin it.


[deleted]

Vapor maxes...


Saucy_Totchie

You read my mind. I didnt particularly love the Vapormaxes but I liked them enough to maybe cop. The 2s though were absolutely horrendous and completely turned me off to the model.


jailbre4ker

Guess ultraboosts went the same direction :(


peacenchemicals

Dude, ultra boosts definitely went down the same path unfortunately.


jailbre4ker

There were some ok 4.0s and I don’t hate the 20, but everything else is wack-ass shit. Hoping for some more retros.


rya241

Dumb question but what has replaced the Ultraboosts in your opinion?


adam_jc

Yeezy 350’s


peacenchemicals

Not sure. By the time I was ready to pick up a pair the ugly ones were out and I stopped caring. I only ever really wear NMDs and even those are getting kinda weird too lol


Bamres

There are still soome pretty nice ones but yeah after they changed to the knit pattern being the lined row and a few other things, they definitley are not what they used to be


tom_fuckin_bombadil

I feel like adidas has a bad habit of riding on one sneaker's popularity until it's completely dead and ground into the dust then hoping that it'll have hit the next one before then. Rinse and repeat. NMDs, Ultraboosts, Tennis Hus (very briefly), Deerupts (for one hot summer), Yeezy's are starting to overplay their hand, the hype for 4ds is gone but the price tag remains It's a good thing they have Yeezy's, otherwise adidas would probably be mentioned as much as pumas or reeboks in this sub. That and the fact that Stan Smiths will be timeless (the problem with Stan smiths is that theyre well liked because of their simplicity, can't really do much in terms of collabs or designs when simplicity is the selling point)


wreckonize

The original release of them was great. Then Nike did what they do and ruined the silhouette. Just like they did with Flyknit racers/trainers.


sadface-

Hey I'll defend the Flyknit Racers till the day I die. Theyre still my favourite shoe and I think most of the CWs were still pretty good overall save for a few. I still wear them but I baby them because the QC on them is fucking trash, outsole has separated a few times already. Most of the trainers were pretty okay, I dig the sunset pink when they rereleased it in 2017/8. But that aside, your point about ruining the Roshe silhouette still stands.


connorgrice

Racers are still the goat silhouette. Nike’s never improved from there


caceres_matias

I think Racers are great indeed. There were pretty hyped also. But Trainers... mmm they just didn’t feel good for me. Or Mariahs 👎🏻


sadface-

Mariahs didn't work for me either. Trainers eh.. depends on the CW. I have a soft spot for the Sunset Pink and the Kanye Whites (duh) and the Cirrus Blue. But theyre kind of a neither-here-nor-there silhouette, not as chunky as UBs or Air Maxes, but not as sleek as the Flyknit Racers either. I thought they arent very versatile when it comes to integrating them into fits.


caceres_matias

Also I don’t remember having a lighter shoe than the flyknit racer Oreos


wreckonize

Oh, I’ll defend them too. But only the v.1 Racers. Everything after felt cheap and it’s like they just tried to make as many colorways as possible. But the original Racers were literally perfect. I’ll never get rid of mine.


hype_beest

I have to admit that I missed the entire Roshe phase. But I also didn't have much money.


Not_Blitzcrank

I always saw pretty clean Roshes at Ross for like $30-40 before the shutdown!


SneakyTubol

My Roshe Volt-Hyperpunch is the one that got me into the sneaker game. It was my first "real shoe".


SweetTooth37

You can exclude me though.


cilantno

ok.


fatkidseatcake

Yeah I loved mine. They just kind of drifted off. At least they knew when to stop unlike someone I know coughyeezycough


BallzMcVinegar

Once boost hit the market, roshes didnt stand a chance.


rethousands

It actually took a minute for UB to catch up with roshes. This is coming from somebody who had the pure boost 1.0s


BallzMcVinegar

Right but ultimately that was the shoe that replaced them as far a sneaker collectors go. I havent seen a roshe in the wild in a couple years. People had some crazy roshe collections, I wonder if they still have all of those.


Keeper0fSoles

The real flex is that water💧🔥


mnkhan808

Real r/hydrohomies vibes


Sad__Raccoon

Color scheme is giving me "utopia" vibes, like the giver or something. Very nice and very clean tho


pleenis

I completely forgot about that book. What better time than during a dystopian regime IRL to revisit it. (But seriously, I'm going to re-read it because of this comment; I remember loving it. Although, admittedly, I was also probably /14andthisisdeep.) Also, to hop back on topic - these shoes be freschhh. And I'm really appreciating the frosty bottle aesthetic.


ciw15101

Utopia? or Anthem?


GoCrapYourself

Alright, I gotta ask–where’d you get that water bottle?


mpeskin

Agreed. I want an ID on that bottle.


kskell32

He commented somewhere else and said this “For everyone asking about the bottle. It’s not a brand. Just a nice designed bottle that was sold at a local supermarket here at Argentina priced at only 2 dollars 😂”

MORELIFEman

In 2015 roshe was the white af1


3Stripescyn

Well the white af1 was always the white af1, but it was as popular as the white af1


MORELIFEman

It was the Symbol that the white af represents today


[deleted]

I used to LOVE roches but I found the grip wore down very quickly, they became dangerous to wear if the ground was even a bit wet. So the water bottle next to them gives me anxiety lol


gloomswarm

This is so true. I've slipped so many times in my old Roshes after wearing them a while so I've essentially retired then.


caceres_matias

Hahahah great comment here. Super true about the grip


See5harp

They were literally the shoe that led up to the overwhelming popularity of the NMD.


StaffSgtDignam

Actually, the “sock shoe” trend with sneakers started with Prestos in the early 2000s. Sock Darts came out a few years later but were largely slept on until the Frag collab years later. More expensive or more limited shoes like Balenciaga Speedknits or Yeezy 350s definitely brought a ton of hype to this trend but, years before this to your point, Roshes definitely made this type of sneaker more approachable which NMDs definitely did later on (after the Roshe’s popularity had waned) as well.


See5harp

I mean you could trace that back to the Hurache in like 1993 if you really want to. My friends and I rocked the fuck out of those. I just remember a lot of people fucking with the roches. To be fair, the roches or prestos never had the amount of pull on the industry as the nmd or yeezy. I feel like the roches were way more worn than any version of the presto or sock dart though.


StaffSgtDignam

Huraches had layered uppers, no? (With a mix of both leather and huarache liner)


See5harp

Yea it was basically the first sorta sock shoe I remember buying. Def more structure than the nmd and sock dart and even the Roche. The roche really to me just feels and looks like an athletic and light version of a chukka or desert boot. That silhouette is always gonna look good to me.


StaffSgtDignam

Yeah I think the Presto definitely started the sock-shoe design of a single knit/material upper. They definitely were inspired by the huaraches design but basically made them completely minimal by only using the liner. I think Sock Dart and, to a lesser extent, even the Free series ended up evolving the design into the Roshe which is basically the father of the modern sock-shoe. 350s, NMDs, UB Uncaged, Element Reacts, etc. etc. all seem to follow this same design philosophy.


SierraDespair

Everybody had a pair of these around 2013 and 2014 they were so comfy.


asharnoff

Love the colors on these! I used to be a huge Roshe fan back in the day.


crimsonchin68

What version of the Roshes are these?


GTChillin

Looks like the fly knit based on the bottom slits on the grooves.


levi_hammer

r/hydrohomies


roosty_butte

Was looking for this


beergaggles

These are hella clean and Roshe is such an iconic silhouette that has been copied 1000 time since it’s been released. I think if they released Roshes the same way they release Yeezys now in different CWs.. they’d be still be as popular as they once were


ricktr0ll

And they wouldn’t be $200+ the best thing about Roshe is how inexpensive they are.


StaffSgtDignam

That’s what drove their popularity in the 1st place though.


IcedOutMoon

man, what you on? everyone's a roshe fan, they're great!


chocolateyshatnr

Roshe are still a go to gym shoe! Mad comfort


skalamabirdy2

Roshe was the craze like 4-5 years ago


PM_ME_UR_ARIOLA

I have those too! The knit on them makes them so comfortable.


caceres_matias

If you wear socks! If you don’t... the exact opposite


yourfriendchuck

I miss the Roshe


caceres_matias

For everyone asking about the bottle. It’s not a brand. Just a nice designed bottle that was sold at a local supermarket here at Argentina priced at only 2 dollars 😂


crimelysis

Of course! Gracias! Where in Argentina?


ItsNeeks_

I still have 2-3 pairs of Roshes that are in my rotation. Classic!


AychiMama098

Classic Roshe. I loved when the bottom lost their grips and youd slip over everything.


yoSausage

Clean.


Zulututu

Wait what are these called exactly? I have the standard Roshe Calypso still brand new but like these as well


amisenko

I have a pair of the LibertyxNike Roshe and they are one of my all time favorite cops. Don't wear them much but they're beautiful.


oswaltius

ID on water?


1percentRolexWinner

w2c?


wolftom01

Roshes walked so NMDs and Ultraboosts could run


2muchtomfuckery

These were the 350s before 350s. Everyone was either in these or ZX flux till Kanye ripped off the Roshe and took it to Adidas in the form of the 350s


TheMilkPlug69

Yeezy copied Roshe, change my mind.


StaffSgtDignam

Technically Prestos and Sock Darts were the forefathers of Roshes (which kept the same sock-shoe design of the two aforementioned sneakers).


azur933

Oh mama


funnymanallinsane

Awesome!


rslashhowdoyoureddit

The original ultra boosts


Radio_man69

The shoe model that birthed Kanye’s adidas run. Literally every self proclaimed “sneakerhead” loved roshes...so not many fans?


airtec87

Yep I had a pair like everyone else did. I dont see them much nowadays though.


eXodus094

What's that colorway called? Edit: Calypso?


AsianBlasian620

Those arrreee firrrree man 🔥🔥🔥


TrAiNeD_MysTic

ID on these?!


Dgo_snkrhd

Roshe’s are the shoe of the decade. Change my mind🤷🏽‍♂️


ens_black

Roshe forever. (Cc: OG Prestos).


rolokone

From an aesthetic standpoint, I am a pretty big fan of the Roshe. I just can't stand how tread of the outside, I find myself slipping and sliding on any surface that is not cement. The outsole design was such a turn off for that that I didn't even bother with the Roshe 2, or the idea of getting a pair of Tanjun as a beater.


caceres_matias

Totally agree with you. Wet stone floors and Roshes are a killer combination.


jlewissc631

I still have a few of my Roshe 1s.


RyVsWorld

The water bottle really makes the picture.


DeadliftsnDonuts

The OG Yeezy


Eparker96

One of my favorite shoes of all time. I’d love to see Nike release more. Love my Lava Pink ones


D3ATHRI5INGUP

Great shot. Add me to the list of people wanting an ID on this bottle lol


EstuaryLou

The original yeezy silhouette


Dovakeeeeeen

I love this color combo. Wish we had it as an option on NikeID.


[deleted]

Very clean


jssf96

Still want a all white pair.


acarver9816

Sick combo, are roshe still even made?😑always wanted a pair when they were proper hyped just never bothered


Bownaldo

Sick CW


I_lovesushi

What kind of water is that?


mrgarechiga

Went back to 2014… where life was better. :(


rachelsev

When you match with a water bottle 😂 dope pic tho g 👌🏼


finnishmacinnis

Do they still make Roshes?


Prancing_Monkey

I am a Roshe fan and this made me happy so thank you


ScotchtapeCabbage

I had a pair of gray Roshe’s which were my first pair of shows i actually bought myself. God damn those were comfy.


matslat

Probably obvious but can I get an ID on the pants?


evernootsofast

Always hated roshes, everyone in my old secondary school had a pair, BUT THESE are icy, actually considering them now lol


nnntom

I recently dug out an old pair and i seem to love them again. Barely worn when i got them, and for some reason i had a very bad opinion about them. Very comfy, and i figured out they work well with some of my fits. If you take them away from the skinny and biker jeans, they can look very cool. They will make a comeback, like the dunks! Just my two cents.


JLam403

Quarantine shoes. Nice


smilingseoull

A true Hydrohomie


airtec87

Roshes were the shit! then came along UB and 350s and it was a wrap.


EasyMacPhoto

Color coordination on point


jameskiddo

Had a bright orange Roshe back in the day. Twisted my ankle wearing them day 3 and never wore them again.


ItsMeYuan

Still got my OG 7’s Deadstock. Sirens, squadrons, calypsos, cybers and mango are my fave ❤️


-Chaz-

Remind me of my Bao dunks! Dope colourway


tom12e

Really dope!


DreamyEyedCyclops

I love rosche!!!


drosten23

There are people who aren't Roshe fans?


bogpudding

Anything mint = I’m sold. Yes I am using the mint theme for mobile reddit


Gowen3D

I now have a new respect for Roshes


Cutie-McBootie

Where can I get this exact pair?


mawxwrist12375

bro this is the cleanest pair of shoes i have ever seen bro where do i get them


Hufflepuffopotamus

Are these available in white like the pic? Everything I see online is clearly grey.


I_have_account

What is this colorway?


EZE1024

What’s the name of the CW?


Akhilees

I want to buy that bottle


[deleted]

These are 🔥🔥🔥


Freskesatan

Everyone forgot about the tubular?


Zoosumaki

can i get an id on that water bottle


GeeVeck

These are sexy!!


DiannaFranzie

I remember when people used to compare these to the 350 V1s. That didn't age well.


pap3rbagmask

Fye


HanYolo23

Roshes are 👍🏽.


willybaeboi

This looks epic


washyourhands--

HOLY DAMN THOSE ARE FIRE. Where can I get them.


caceres_matias

For everyone asking. I have no ID on the bottle, just a regular design bottle I bought super cheap. And the shoes, pretty difficult to find but I got the name already: https://hypebeast.com/2015/9/nike-roshe-nm-flyknit-prm-calypso The upper is 3M reflective. Súper dope


BoBadneS

A fresh pair of roshe was a whole Vibe man. I love those


TheBasementIsDark

Its a shame that Nike ditch these design, now their 60 - 80$ price range looks like shit. Roshe is affordable and easy to customize


backxstab

I still got mine Roshes somewhere lol.


aishajohny

I like it what's is price???
