NikeLAB Blazer Advanced
NikeLab have been responsible for some deluxe reinventions of Swoosh staples of late. Following some premium takes on the AM1 and the Air Force 1, the top tier team turn their hands to another Nike classic – the Blazer. The mid-cut court shoe gets made up in buttery black nubuck with a tonal big-belly Swoosh. Noticeably, the sneaker eschews laces and opts for a zip that runs the length of the tongue. The addition of the zipper immediately changes the aesthetic; it slims the silhouette and almost nudges the Blazer from sneaker to boot.
