The Blazer Mid “Nike Classic” is Inspired by Retro Cassette Tapes

In recent years, Nike, Inc. has honored its unofficial alignment with some of the biggest cultural moments in music. With recent releases like the “Bronx Origins” Air Force 1, the “Mix CD” Foamposite Ones, and the “Cleveland Rocks” Blazer Mid, the Swoosh has begun to recognize the role it’s played in the music scene. Furthering that acknowledgment, Nike will be preparing a special collection dubbed “Nike Classics,” which feature direct callouts to records and mixtapes of yesteryear.

Inclusive of the Air Force 1 Low, Nike Dunk High, and this Nike Blazer Mid, the collection shares a few key traits: Parental Advisory-inspired “Nike Classics” insoles, cassette motifs at the tongue, and silver-grey detail that replicates worn-out tape; technology of last century.

For the pack’s Blazer, this worn finish can be seen on the Swooshes and heel overlays which rest atop a clean white leather upper. Aged-look nylon tongues and laces add to the retro charm, whilst black liners and grey soles round out the design.
