Nike Tanjun Chukka: A simple sneakerboot

The success story of the Nike Tanjun would trace out to its father design: the Nike Roshe. Inspired by the coinage of a Japanese Zen Master, the outline of both shoes exhibit pure simplicity which coincidentally is the origin of the word Tanjun.

Nike further developed the Tanjun's smooth design and incorporated it into a very functional sneakerboot that can withstand differences in weather.
