Coloured to a medium olive and light armory blue colourway, these Nike SB Zoom Blazer Chukka skate shoes are durable, built for comfort and support boardfeel and grip across a variety of terrains. The uppers are crafted from smooth suede, subtle perforation has been added along the edge of each outer side below light armory blue suede Swoosh ticks which continue to meet at the back of the heel, a cut away section reveals colour matched leather with ‘nike’ lettering embroidered on top. The tongue is made from a combination of textile and foam, which is visible along the top and welcomes all-day wear through a high level of cushioning across the top of the foot. Flat cotton laces have been colour matched to the rest of the design and a woven Nike SB swoosh label has been added around the top edge of the tongue. Encouraging this further, the inside of the ankle is lined with a smooth fabric and for a responsive ride a Zoom Air unit has been inserted into the sockliner.
Completed with a light brown gum rubber outsole and a grip-orientated herringbone tread design, this new season chukka style pairs best with darker tones of brown and black for a casual but refined look. Nike’s extensive brand history is noted through details that pay homage to original styles, such as the foam tongue, which was first seen on the 1973 basketball Nike Blazer. This modern rendition showcases developments within performance driven detailing, whilst the aesthetic remains reminiscent of vintage aesthetics.
