Huaraches are so cool. Half of me wishes they were widely available, but the other half of me knows they will become the next Roshe Runs if that's the case.

 

I love Roshes, but it kind of bums me out whenever I see a kid with a Daimond supply or Obey shirt and matching Nikes. Such a good sillouette though.

The Roshe story is sad. Such a good shoe but the commercialisation of them has absolutely ruined the appeal. Nike have played it perfectly, produce a shoe that appeals to the masses at a low price point = $$$$

Totally agree, but on the bright side, at least the shoes aren't as much of an eyesore as Nike Shox or something.

 

Also - off topic, love your username. Japandroids is (are?) great.

Some roshes for sure. To me the only roshes that look good really are the ones that are all black. Part of me dies when I see someone rocking roshes with sorbet colored accents and some nonsense dangling off of them. I just think they have a nice sillouette that gets completely ruined if there is too much going on.

 

Definitely a polarizing shoe though, I find most people either think they are cool or hate them.

^they're okay actually. saturation is annoying by extension of who you see it on—i'm not really at all part of that obey snapback diamond supply crooks & castles lifestyle, know what i mean? >_> toebox's shape (or lack thereof rather) irks me. plus sole can age horribly in some instances and just go straight banana
just generally feel like there's better things out there, too

I'm okay with roshes. They're a nice comfortable summer shoe, but then again I've seen Roshes on a total of 5 people IRL.

cross post from weird sneakers thread
 

Even though Pigalle is a joke brand their nike collab looks pretty solid. Way better than the RT one imo.

I like both Pigalle and RT collabs. But the classic all-white AF1 beats them imo

However, the leather applied to the RT and Pigalle AF1s can't be ignored. And I just don't know about the dye on the Pigalle jawnz... Kind of stupid, kinda' cool. RT "Ultimate Warrior" AF1s are of course tacky (props to those who bought the boot ones)...somewhat cool also

... And postponed. I think most restocks were sz 15+?

I don't have a problem with roshes looking like shit or being commercial, but mostly because they aren't connected at all with the history of innovation that's core to the nike brand.
