The upper is completely mesh and the with the contrast midsole, what isn’t there to like? Every athletic-orientated shoe from Nike has been super in terms of design and appearance lately. I don’t know the reasoning behind it but I am definitely not complaining. I am 100% for anything that makes me look like a [tech]ninja. The Roshe can’t teach you the Kamehameha, but it can make your runs/walks/workouts a hell of a lot more comfortable. The mesh upper is constructed out of an excellent, breathable, material; and the Phylon midsole is lightweight with a waffle-patterned outsole for traction.
