Inspired by the bright lights and bustling city-streets of Rio, as well as the fabled Brasilian hummingbird, the latest City Pack channels South American nightlife and nature in one cohesive collection. Each of the four silhouettes, including the Nike Shox Turb XIV, the Air Max Motion, the Air Max 90 Breathe, and the Roshe Run Slip-on, offer vibrant renditions of time-tested classics and new-age icons alike.

Carrying on the regional theme, the Rosherun Slip-on offers a lightweight and laceless alternative to the instantly iconic Rosherun design.


The BMF Kicks & Sportswear Take >>

The Nike Roshe Run Slip City ‘Rio’ is a new take on its ancestor, the usually-laced Nike Roshe Run. A slip-on version, this is essentially the same shoe but re-engineered for ease of use. Whether or not the fit is solid, the looks of the Slip are strong. The same traditional Roshe Run Phylon sole is used, the shape is kept intact, and the Rio colors of the Slip are very dynamic and attractive. Though it looks more like a shoe for water sports and wet environment, in the right kinds of lifestyle colors, it can compete just as strong with its predecessor.
