The Nike Roshe is one of the latest additions to the Nike catalogue, but its popularity has become so great so quickly that it’s safe to say it’s going to be a classic. Here are a few fun facts:

The original colourway, iguana, is meant to represent the green moss of a Zen master’s garden.
The Nike Roshe was going to be called Roshi, which is the title given to Zen masters, but for legal reasons they had to swap the I for an E.
