We’re not big fans of the Roshe here at KicksOneTwo. Sure, it was cool when it first came out, but it became totally and completely washed faster than any other shoe ever. The Roshe is to sneakers what Been Trill is to clothing (you know that’s a true statement). We drag it on Twitter. We joke about it in person. We even use it for batting practice.
So you already know we were licking our chops at the prospect of new comedic material when the Roshe Two was announced … and Nike didn’t let us down one bit. Newsflash: still trash (see what we did there?). It looks like a neoprene foot condom. It looks like a duck foot. If it was a video game, it would be Trash Bandicoot. It looks like something you might want to wear with your straight-leg pants and oversized button down. It looks like … well, you get the picture.
Now that we’re done roasting, here’s a serious question: will it even sell? The fashion-forward set moved on from the Roshe a long time ago, and the high-school kids who wear it now probably won’t want to pay more for a new model and won’t be willing to consider anything else. The original Roshe will be around forever (smh), but is there really a place for the Roshe Two?
So here’s hoping the Roshe Two does the sneaker world a colossal favor, and fades away into relative obscurity sooner rather than later. Until then, at least we’ll have our jokes. There’s nothing quite like a good old fashioned roast session.
What do you think of the Roshe Two? Do you think it’s trash? Do you actually like it? If you do, we’d recommend you take a good long look in the mirror, but if you want to join the roast, feel free to do so in the comments or on Twitter.
