Simplistic design and balance are the inspiration for this women's sneaker.

The Nike Roshe Run Metric QS is a shoe that epitomises simplicity, there are no unnecessary additions and every detail is there to bring the shoe to life, nothing more.

Inspired by the concept of Zen and meditation, the shoe itself was even designed to represent a Japanese Zen garden. The waffle outsole is a series of triangles, representing the stepping stones normally found in a tranquil rock garden – even the insole mirrors a raked rock garden.

You’ll have to take a look at the pictures to make up your own mind, but either way it’s a beautifully designed sneaker:
