In today’s market hybrid designs are common ground. From the auto industry to the sneaker industry, crossbreeding is going on everywhere you look. Jordan Brand is notorious for the deed, as is Nike, with both brands producing a slew of silhouettes in the recent years which use features taken from a variety of different models.
One of latest hybrids to emerge from the Nike drawing board and into the shops is the Navaro High which Nike describes as “an urban-inspired sneaker that you can wear with just about anything.” For the designing of the upper Nike looked to it’s classic Blazer for inspiration however extra adding in the ankle and some variations in the way the paneling is laid out on the upper ensures the Navaro High maintains a unique look compared to the original Blazers. Sitting below the upper is a vulcanized sole unit which is starting to become the norm for a lot of Nike’s hybrid designs.
A Black version of the Navaro High was released at the beginning of the year and this new White/Navy/Grey version is the latest colorup to hit distributors. I can’t front, when I saw the Black ones back in January I wasn’t really feelin them, but now with the addition of this White/Navy/Grey version I think my mind is starting to change. I may just have to scoop a pair up for a test run. If you’d like to do the same you can get em now through Finishline for $75.
