9.)They’re Big In Japan
Although the Roshe launched in the US, it has a very strong lineage to Japan that goes beyond its name and original “zen” inspiration. There were some early Asia-exclusive colorways that were highly sought after (“Lemon Twist”, “Charcoal”, & “Mint”), that taught many people how to source out overseas boutiques, as well as use sites like Tenso and Rakuten, which were essential in bringing over these new models. Roshe fans would continue to keep an eye on these outlets for other colorways and models they had trouble locating in their area in the years to come.
