Available Now // Nike Blazer Mid 77 “Black Suede”
The Nike Blazer is heralded as one of the original creations from the guys in Beaverton, establishing itself way back in 1973. It’s sure come a long way since them, from its origins as a basketball shoe, then adapted for a skate shoe and, finally, settled in as streetwear staple. Largely thanks to its collaborations with Virgil Abloh, it has seen a market explosion over the past 18-or-so months. This latest release continues the blitz of Blazers, straying a far way from the white leather/colored Swoosh options that we’ve seen flood the market back in 2019.
As bold as it is beautiful, this addition to the Blazer’s classically-inspired catalog features an all-black suede upper paired with a “Pure Platinum” Swoosh that’s bound to benefit any wardrobe — streetwear or otherwise. The everyman-approach continues underfoot, with a vintage-style sail cupsole unit housing the sneaker, and the pair is completed with further throwback hits, including exposed foam tongues, old-school branding hits, and classic flat white laces.
A world away from the on-court white leather kicks of the 70s — but still managing to encapsulate the era perfectly. Love ’em? Pairs are available now from the Nike retailers listed below. Go get ’em.
