Nike Roshe Two SE History
The Nike Roshe is a line of lightweight, comfortable, and affordable sneakers that made its debut in 2012. The first shoe in this line is the Nike Roshe Run, which later on renamed as the Nike Roshe One. It was designed by Nike designer Dylan Raasch.
Despite the surprising success of the Roshe One, Nike took four years before it introduced the second model from the series – the Nike Roshe Two. Also designed by Dylan Raasch, it features a lightweight textile upper, an upgraded lacing system, a supplemental foam layer for additional cushioning, and an updated midsole. The Swoosh also got a bit of an upgrade as well on this version. Further, the outsole has been updated with deeper grooves compared to the first model and the foot collar has also been redesigned for an improved sock-like fit.
The Roshe Two was also released in a special edition version known as the Nike Roshe Two SE. Of course, it follows the silhouette of the minimalist Roshe Two but with a few material upgrades. This version features a mix of flexible textile and mesh or woven materials on the upper.
Nike Roshe Two SE Style
The Nike Roshe Two SE is a low-top casual sneaker that appeals to both men and women. It has a seamless silhouette with minimalist design, and is available in different colorway options, making it a staple athleisure sneaker for everyday casual use.
Fit & Sizing
The Special Edition release of the Nike Roshe Two is available for both men’s and women’s. Men’s sizes range from 6 to 15 while women’s sizes range to 5 to 12, both in medium width. The stretchy upper materials conform to the feet for a sock-like, custom fit.
The Nike Roshe Two follows the trail of the original Roshe – light, minimal, and comfortable. But materials in this version have been upgraded for a more comfortable fit.
One that can easily be distinguished is the Swoosh, which is now embossed in the Roshe Two. The Two also has an upgraded triple density midsole, upper material, and sock liner. The lacing system has also been upgraded with perforations to allow ventilation. The pull tab on the tongue bears a small round button with the debossed Swoosh logo, and another pull tab can be found on the heel.
What sets the Nike Roshe Two SE apart, however, is the upper material. The classic Two model features textile material on the upper, but this version utilizes a combination of flexible textile and mesh or woven material construction on the upper.
- The Nike Roshe Two has also been released in a Flyknit upper version called as the Nike Roshe Two Flyknit.
- Nike provides pull tabs in the heel and tongue for convenient off and on.
- A triple density foam offers a nice blend of cushioning and shock absorption.
- Nike’s staple outsole design, the Waffle outsole delivers good grip and adequate durability.
