UPDATE: The Blazer ADVNCD is one of those modified silhouettes that manages to retain elements of its original design, and yet look so vastly different at the same time. The substitution of a medial side zipper for the Blazer's standard lacing may be only a small change, but it has a huge impact on the overall appearance of the shoe. Thanks to Allike we finally have a good look at the blue pair from this release on foot. If you're a fan of the sleek new look and appreciate premium leather, you can find these in stock right now at NikeLAB stockists, including Allike.
Debuting at retail towards the end of 2016 in a 'Vachetta Tan' make-up, the Blazer ADVNCD reworked a classic 70s Nike basketball high-top through minimalist eyes, introducing a medial side zipper in place of traditional lacing for streamlined simplicity. NikeLAB now bring us two new colourways of this modernised retro that look every bit as sophisticated as the initial release. Available in both 'Obsidian' and 'Off White' tonal make-ups, the premium leather Blazers are fitted to traditional white midsoles for a clean contrast.
The NikeLAB Blazer ADVNCD Pack is available for purchase right now through select NikeLAB doors, including Haven.
