Seen here in an earthy shade of sesame with mystic navy trims and sail white stitching, these Blazer Mid Premium Shoes from Nike SB arrive as a welcomed addition to the brand’s latest Tokyo Rawthentic collection. Inspired by the ancient Japanese art of Sashiko, these mid-cut collar skate shoes remain loyal to their O.G court-side roots by pairing durable suede with reinforced canvas for a greater sense of resilient structuring. The crisp-white rubber outsole boasts a vulcanised construction that fuses seamlessly with the uppers for a flexible, broken-in feel, whilst the impact-minded foam sockliner and the pre-formatted Zoom Air unit in the heel helps make them a go-to choice for any energised skate style. Dark navy cut-though Swooshes are stitched with single-track white thread to enhance its deconstructed aesthetic, whilst the cross-sewn external strips and the frayed-edge ‘Nike’ embroidered heel counters help to celebrate Japanese craftsmanship at its finest. Flat laces keep the exposed foam tongue securely fastened across the arch of the foot, whilst the custom ‘Nike SB Blazer’ tongue tabs seal the design off with ease.
Initially debuting back in 1973, the Nike Blazer has witnessed countless re-imaginings since it first set foot on the basketball court. Swiftly adopted by the skate scene thanks to its high-collared profile and well-protected sense of structure, the Nike SB Blazer remains to this day to be one of the brand’s most favoured and highly admired styles.
