The answer is no! The Roshe Run, now known as the Roshe One and Roshe Two, is NOT a running shoe. The reason Nike changed the name is because the original name with “Run” made people think it was a running shoe.

Can you blame them? Nike is the biggest athletic footwear company in the world, so of course people assumed a shoe named Roshe Run was a running shoe.

If you’re considering running or already a runner, PLEASE do not run in Roshes. It’s a casual/lifestyle shoe, not a running shoe. Purchase a real running shoe, and refrain from running in Roshes to avoid foot or leg injuries.

Please spread the word! I can’t tell you how many people I see running in Roshes. Although it makes me cringe, I totally understand that some people just don’t know any better.

Visit your local running store and consult with an employee to find the right running shoe for you.
