Get This Hot-White Nike Blazer (While You Still Can)
Nike Blazer has been increasing steadily for several years now, and sneakers don’t look like they’ll slow down any time soon. What started out as a groundbreaking 1970s basketball shoe has become a modern staple of stylish sneakerheads everywhere. It has been the focus of a number of famous collaborations — most notably with Virgil Abloh’s ivory white and Japanese Sacai Label—Just add fuel to the fire. Now, Nike has remixed the classic Blazer in a way that makes it fly off store shelves.
The main design change here is that the Blazer’s quintessential Swoosh has been replaced as a niche for Off-White collaborations, which have gone unnoticed by sneakerheads and fashion aficionados alike. There are also other subtle yet enhanced additions, like extra-wide laces and thicker accent stitching. Nike is known to occasionally produce generic release kicks that match more limited edition fare, and this seems to be one of those times. The black and white colorway has quickly sold out on Nike’s website over the past few days, but you can still pick it up with oversized Swooshes in the color tones. blue ice and floral pattern. And fear not: it still runs almost every size of the classic black Swoosh available via Foot Locker if you are looking for a pair.
Even if you remove the resemblance to a lovely collab from a few years ago, these Nike Blazers are a worthy addition to any wardrobe. The Blazer’s enduring appeal has to do with its modesty: It’s an opposite silhouette with forward-looking design details but not too flashy. (And in this case, the Swoosh jumbo just adds just the right flair.) Simply put, this Nike looks good with anything you pair it with — so if you’ve been waiting to add more Blazer into his swing sneakers, this slightly odd design — just before spring — is the perfect time to do it.
