Nike has defiantly surprised us with the Blazer over the years. From strapless velcro models to designs which incorporate the use of a belt to vulcanized versions, the classic basketball silhouette from 1972 has received a number a makeovers, some more welcomed then others. This time though Nike didn’t add anything unusual to the sneakers, instead they played with the shaping of the paneling on the upper to create a rather unique looking Blazer Hi.
Starting off with a glossy white patent leather base, Nike reworked the black leather strip around the toe to come up into a point in the center, sort of making it look like something you would see on dress shoes of some sort. Black leather was then continued up the lace panels and out back onto the heel with fin-like shapes stitched into the paneling half-way up the lace panels and just above the Swoosh. Last but not least is a dab of purple on the lining and tongue tag branding.
Defiantly a unique looking Blazer, one of which may not appeal to everybody but will for sure catch somebodys attention out there. If it catch yours you can snatch a pair up now through Finish Line.
