The Nike Blazer Mid ‘Leopard’ Bares its Teeth Release: TBC
The Nike Blazer continues to be a popular choice among sneakerheads, long after its hardwood heyday. High profile collaborations with the likes of Off-White, sacai, and Cactus Plant Flea Market have elevated the retro silhouette to new heights in recent years.
Nike’s latest in-house design reveals the wild side of the Blazer Mid, with the exotic ‘Leopard’ print baring its teeth.
Manufactured with black suede overlays and leopard suede print on the Swooshes, heels, and padded tongue, the Blazer Mid also delivers a classic white rubber sole.
Original released in 1977, the hardwood classic adopts an autoclave construction that blends the outsole to the midsole for a streamlined look. Most notably, the Blazer utilises a deconstructed-looking foam tongue, an aesthetic that's become increasingly in today's sneaker zeitgeist. Solid rubber outsoles with herringbone tread complete the design.
Expect the Nike Blazer Mid 'Leopard' to arrive in the wild over the coming weeks.
