The “It Shoe” of summer time 2013 is undoubtedly the Nike Roshe Run. Affordable and a light weight mesh design makes it the perfect lounge shoe. With that popularlity comes a bit of attention on the custom sneaker side as we’ve seen a few already. This pair is something refreshing to see in the custom genre in general. Titled “Island Girl” customized by KIKERONI of SLHVN the simple red and white base was changed into a very attention getting pair of sneaks.
Nike Roshe Runs have continued to grow in popularity since their successful launch last year. The model went from basic colorways in limited quantities to what now seems an endless array of shades, patterns, and materials. Jeremy Hedin, better known as @whatthekicks, commissioned Emilio “PK” Zuniga to create a pair that transcended what we’ve seen so far from the running shoe.
