Nike Juvenate History

Released only in 2015, the Nike Juvenate is an entirely new silhouette that takes its cues from at least two models from the past: the Nike Roshe One and the Nike Rejuven8. The new model takes after the straightforward and low-key appearance of the Roshe One. In fact, the two are so similar when it comes to appearance that one can be reasonably mistaken for the other. It also embraces the main function of the Rejuven8, which was to provide a breather for active people who are taking their breaks.

Though it sounds so harmless, the Juvenate was not met with a welcoming cheer when it was released in 2015. It caused quite a stir not because of structural or functional deficiencies (of course not!), but because of its original name Zenji. The name was supposed to be a nod to its zen-like properties of being simple and straightforward yet elegantly functional, but it turned out to be an unwitting reference to a racial slur by some Middle-Eastern people against migrants from a small African region called Zanzibar.

Nike changed the name to the current one, and it didn’t take long before people started to focus more on the benefits that the new model provides, which include its being so flexible (enough to be folded, really!) it’s easy to carry it in bags. This just proves that Nike and its products are truly more than just their famous (or infamous) names.

Now, the Nike Juvenate comes in a variety of colors. The material on the upper varies, and the variations are partly determined by the color of the shoe.

Nike Juvenate Style

The Nike Juvenate is a lightweight casual shoe that goes well with a wide variety of clothing items such as shorts, pants, and even skirts. Hence, it’s truly a boon to anyone who is on the go and doesn’t really have that much time to devote to outfit matching. Its simple design and tonal appearance contribute significantly to this versatility.

To add some sort of sophistication, the forefoot mesh features a well-organized honeycomb pattern. This feature is perhaps the one that makes it easily distinguishable from other models that it shares silhouettes with.

Fit & Sizing

The Nike Juvenate is a slip-on shoe that comes in a standard width, and this is true for both men and women. The ladies can pick the one that best fits them from sizes 5 to 11.5. Men can choose from sizes 7 to 13.5. An effective lacing system is ready to be used should there be a need to adjust the fit of the shoe.

Notable Features

The no-tongue slip-on design of the Nike Juvenate is perhaps one of its most recognizable features. Another will be the honeycomb finish on the upper that gives it not only a unique image but also a sock-like fit. The fact that it’s flexible enough to be folded and stuffed in a bag completes its offer of comfort and light mobility.
