Nike Juvenate TXT History

Released in 2015, the Nike Juvenate was inspired by an older model called the Nike Roshe. The term “Roshe” was derived from the word “Roshi,” which means zen master. This line features a flexible and lightweight upper donned in a minimalist profile. With an affordable price, these sneakers became an instant hit during its initial release.

The Nike Juvenate and Roshe carry a similar design and almost identical look. Despite this, the fate of the Juvenates plunged the opposite way as the Roshes, and its history seems to be the culprit.

The Nike Juvenate was initially dubbed as the Nike Zenji. Inspired by the zen-like stature, the word “zenji” which means zen master. The collection features a lightweight and simple design which was intended to exude zen-like characteristics of being calm and relaxed. Moreover, it is supposed to be a travel-friendly sneaker as in comes with a dust bag.

Moments after its release, a Reddit thread was created discussing the brand’s fiasco. The chosen name also happened to be a derogatory term in Arabic for people living in Zanzibar. Because of this, Nike re-called the existing units and changed the preexisting boxes to Juvenate.

Nike Juvenate TXT Style

The Nike Juvenate TXT has a sleek and breathable style displayed through its breathable mesh upper. It retains its seamless design as it features a no-tongue design, making it acceptable, preferred even, not to wear socks. These sneakers are more suitable to wear during the summer or the hotter seasons. Thus, wearing it with shorts, skirts or dresses can give any outfit a sporty-girly appeal.

Fit & Sizing

The Juvenate TXT generally runs true to size. Its lace-up closure and its flexible textured mesh upper provides a sock-like fit and keeps the feet locked in place. These are women’s sneakers with available sizes ranging from US 5-12. Half sizes are available for broader options.

Notable Features

With a fully collapsible upper composed of textured mesh, the Nike Juvenate TXT is a great travel companion. Unlike regular shoe construction, this sneaker does not feature a tongue. Its soft upper not only allows the shoe to have a sock-like fit which secures the foot in place but enhances comfort as well.

Additional Info

  • The Nike Juvenate TXT includes an EVA foam midsole, a lightweight cushioning material, which makes wearing of these sneakers more comfortable.
  • The Waffle-patterned outsole provides more traction and grip to these sneakers.
