Get That Hot White Nike Blazer (While You Still Can)
The Nike Blazer has been on a steady rise for a few years now, and the sneaker doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. What started as a revolutionary basketball shoe in the 1970s has blossomed into a modern staple of stylish sneakerheads everywhere. He’s been at the center of a few high-profile collaborations, including with Virgil Abloh’s Off-White and Japanese label Sacai, which have only added fuel to the fire. Now Nike has remixed the classic Blazer in such a way that it’s flying off the shelves.
The main design tweak here is that the Blazer’s quintessential Swoosh has been oversized in an area worthy of the Off-White collaboration, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by eagle-eyed sneakerheads and fashion fanatics alike. There are also other subtle but elevated additions, such as extra-wide laces and thicker decorative stitching. Nike has been known to occasionally produce general release kicks that nod to more limited edition fare, and this seems to be one of those times. The white and black colourway has been selling out quickly on the Nike site over the past few days, but you can still pick it up with oversized Swooshes in ice blue tones and floral patterns. And fear not: there’s almost a full run of the classic black Swoosh still available through Foot Locker if you’re looking to pick up a pair.
Even if you put aside the resemblance to a coveted collab from a few years ago, these Nike Blazers are a worthy addition to any closet. The Blazer’s enduring appeal has to do with its modesty: it’s a retro silhouette with edgy details but not too flashy. (And in this case, the jumbo Swoosh adds just the right amount of flair.) Simply put, this Nike looks great with just about anything you’d pair it with, so if you’ve been waiting to add the Blazer to your sneaker rotation, this slightly spooky design – right before Spring – is the perfect time to do it.
