Nike Roshe 1& 2 Running Shoes On Sale + Free Delivery at Finish Line!

Its taken me a while to come around to the Nike Roshe, but I’ve finally become a fan. I’m not sure why it took me so long – perhaps it’s because they were too “simple” looking? Not sure; but as a professional designer, I’m personally always striving for a “less is best” aesthetic, and that’s certainly what the shoe designers over at Nike were going for when designing this shoe.

Why Are they Called Nike “Roshe,” Anyway?

Roshe Fun Fact: The Nike Roshe’s original designer, was named Dylan Raasch, which is pretty close to the name of the shoe. However, he didn’t name them after himself. Instead, he named the shoe the “Roshe” as a nod to Roshi, the title given to a Zen master, the ultimate expression of simplicity and calmness.

Well, they obviously got the design right – they are selling like mad and there is a continual stream of new releases featuring interesting color combinations and patterns.

Roshe Fun Fact #2: The original Roche Run colorway, called “iguana” green, was inspired by the moss and rocks in a traditional Zen garden. Not sure if the new “fly knit” technology is named in honor of of Mr. Miyagi, (you know, catching the flies with chopsticks?) but maybe subconsciously?

Roshe Fun Fact #3:  None of the 100+ “Mike Rosche’s” on Facebook inspired the design or get royalties from the sale, although at least a few of them probably own a pair of Rosh’s.

So, in conclusion, “Nike” named after a Greek God, plus “Roshe” named after a Zen master. That’s a pretty intense name for a running shoe!

A Selection of Roshe Shoes Fit for a Zen Master (Or, Not?)

Actually, monks are not known for running, let alone spending $100 on a pair of running shoes, so that’s not an accurate statement. I think they would prefer free sandals if given the choice. Maybe it’s just another example of the commercialization of something pure, like Christmas, or the Toyota “Sequoia,” whose terrible CO2 emissions ironically kills trees.

Anyway, the collection of Nike Roshe over at Finish Line is pretty solid, and they are constantly adding new ones to the sale section. They will also frequent the new shoe release calendar, so if you are a real fan, that’s a good page to bookmark.

One of the best things about the Roshe One & Two is that they are pretty inexpensive to start with, and about $20 cheaper than the Shox. With the current $15 off coupon you can get a sweet pair for about $75. Tack on free shipping, which Finish Line offers with every pair of Nike Rosche Runs, and you can get a great deal on a really great shoe. It’s that simple!

Old School Reebok Pumps & Running Shoes: They’re Back!

Another shoe that brings me back to the days of my youth. I was 14 when these joints first made their debut in 1989, and its good to see them make a reappearance. Finish Line has a decent selection of Reebok Pumps – some look updated, like the Omni Lite “Notre Dame” that are navy blue with gold accents. And some looks straight-up retro, like the Twilight Zone’s white/blue/orange colorway which have the very prominent orange “pump” basketball in the tongue. Get a coupon and the price drops to almost as low as they were in the 90s!

Coupons for Trail Running Shoes: The North Face & New Balance for Men and Women

Trail Running Shoes at Finish Line: Get a Coupon and Get Dirty: Trail running is one of my favorite activities, and I especially enjoy it this time of the year. The air is cool, the leaves are crunchy underfoot, and the woods where I run are usually a bit damp which lets you get a good whiff of that mulchy, earthy smell. Nice.

The North Face Trail Running Shoes for Running on Uneven Terrain

Variations in the scenery keep things interesting, and I almost have to be hyper-aware of my surroundings as the terrain is very variable. One second I might be running uphill, the next I might be jumping across a stream or over a fallen log. It’s a good mental exercise as well as physical. It also tends to recenter me spiritually as being out in nature is good for the soul. (and the runner’s high helps too!)

For trail running I usually wear a rather chunky pair of New Balance, but The North Face has recently been releasing more minimalist shoes specifically for trail running, like the Nike Free Hyperfeel. I’m really considering getting a pair of these, as they are supposed to mimic the feel of running barefooted, which is probably a cool feeling when you are trucking through the woods!

The varied terrain breaks up the monotony of running, and you have to be hyper-aware of your surroundings – one minute you might be hopping over a log, the next you might be splashing across a stream.

Also consider the physiological benefits of being out on the trail (the Japanese actually have a term for it called shinrin-yoku or “forest bathing”), as research has shown that being out in nature reduces stress hormones and blood pressure.

If you’re looking to get into trail running, or need a new pair of trail shoes, consider Solomon. They are a premier brand for trail running shoes, and other outdoorsy-type footwear.

Salomon_TrailrunningThe top 4 benefits of trail running with a partner:

1. Motivation – Have a partner who you often hit the trails with, and you’re less likely to skip a workout.
2. Pacing – Running with another person will encourage you to keep going, even when fatigue starts to set in.
3. Safety – Especially important in the woods or on the trail where there are many tripping hazards.
4. Shared Experiences – Being out in the woods or on the trail is a wonderful experience in itself. It’s nice to share it with another person. Hey, look, a deer!

Women’s ASICS Running Shoes Up To 30% Off at Shoes.com: As the winter comes to a close, it’s time to get off the treadmill and start to plan out your outdoor running routes. Early Spring is one of my favorite time to run outside; everything smells fresh, and after being cooped up inside for the majority of the Winter, it’s as good for the mind as it is the body. The change in seasons is also the perfect time to evaluate the condition of your current running shoes to see if they need to be replaced.

ASICSlogoConsider ASICS. While many other shoe companies are very diversified in their offerings, making footwear from boots to sandals to casual shoes, all ASICS makes is running shoes – so you know the quality is there. The folks over at ASICS take running very seriously, and the positive effects it can have on the mind and body. That philosophy is literally built into the company – the name ASICS is an anagram for “anima sana in corpore sano” which translates to “a healthy mind in a healthy body” in Latin.


Need inspiration? Here’s a good commercial!

old-shoes_replaceHow do I know when I need to replace my current running shoes w/ these sweet Asics?

A running rule of thumb is that a good shoe should last around 500 to 600 miles, but I know many people who replace their running shoes in half that distance. While some of us are obsessed about tracking our mileage with a wearable fitness trackers, many don’t know, or don’t keep track of, how many miles are on a certain pair. And saying you should replace shoes 4-6 months is misleading because one runner might run 2 to 3 times the distance another runner might in that time period. Confusing indeed!

The best hint that your running shoes need replacement is to listen to your own body (shins start to hurt, sore arches, sore knees), and to inspect the shoes for general wear and tear. Is the sole starting to rip away from the rest of the shoe or wear down? Is the “spring” all gone from the insole? If yes to either of these questions, it’s most likely time to replace your running shoes.
