The Nike Blazer Story: a Street Footwear Pioneer
The Blazer is one of Nike's most legendary styles. It was first created in 1973 as a high-top basketball shoe that could be worn on or off court. This was at the start of an era when trainers moved from function to fashion, hailing a new age of self-expression and personal freedom. Later the range was added to with a series of lo-rise skater shoes. The models have evolved with the times, but the low-key look and side swish have remained in place throughout. Today the collection includes both contemporary Blazers and vintage models from the Nike archives.
Vintage Street Styles for Skate, Court and Street
We love the archival styles such as the Nike Blazer Vintage '77 as well as the newer models that embrace retro detailing. These sneakers are all about celebrating a time in the world when everything changed. Although the basic look has remained the same, Blazer sneakers have had many technical features added, making them ideal not just for sport but for everyday leisure.
Technical Details add Substance to Style
A clever herringbone outsole offers multidimensional grip, perfect for the skateboard. This is also helped by the vulcanised construction which offers flexibility and support. A Zoom Air unit built into the sock liner provides excellent cushioning. The comfort and lightweight feel of the Nike Blazer makes it an ideal trainer choice for everyday wear. Built with Nike's well-known durability, these trainers can handle wherever your feet take you.
Styling the Nike Blazer
Street fashion and Nike Blazer go hand in hand, whether you're rocking althleisure, skater chic or indie styles. The Nike Blazer has long been the trainer of choice for counter-culture pioneers, alternative sports fans and those who choose low-key comfort. Available in choice of contrasting colours or full colour blocks, there's something for every one in the Nike Blazer range.
