Yesterday we posted the Loopwheeler Blazer Mid but I’m sure you guys want all the details of this nicely crafted shoe. Nike Sportswear worked with Loopwheeler a Japanese company that uses a vintage fabric knitting machine called a loopwheel to make their fabric. The loopwheel can only make about one meter of fabric an hour which equals to about 8 sweaters a day. Only a small amount of these Blazers which feature fabric from the Loopwheel can be produced per day. The rest of the upper feature premium leathers and a Loopwheeler tag on the back heel. These dropped today at Tier 0 Nike retailers worldwide.
