“The one I’m wearing right here, called the Roshe: Immensely comfortable, very simple, clean design. I would wear black.”

-Nike CEO Mark Parker when asked what one pair of shoes he would want if he wear on a desert island.

Mark Parker literally has every Swoosh sneaker ever imagined at his disposal, but his go-to is simple. Designed as a minimalist, the Nike Roshe Run has earned widespread popularity through its simplicity, a movement that is fully supported by the brand’s CEO. Parker chose the Roshe as his ‘desert island sneaker’, the one pair of shoes that he would want if he were to ever be abandoned on an abandoned island. Also in his recent interview with Telegraph, the Nike headman also discussed the brand’s influence and motivation to be a part of the fashion market. Parker reveals that their intent is not to make products that necessarily appeal directly to the luxury fashion consumer, then explains how it ends up that way.
