We’ve already seen a Nike SB model convert to Air Jordanism earlier this year (the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Space Jam’ for our readers still stuck on first gear), but here’s a look at a custom pair of the Nike SB Blazer re-imagined in black patent leather and royal blue; the upper is completely redone to appear like the Space Jam’s glossy patent leather mudguard, with rip-stop nylon utilized on the swoosh and the heel-tab. The blue contrast stitching on the Swoosh adds another layer of the Space Jam motif, as does the stitched detailing on the heel-tab, which spells out ‘SB’ to mimic the ’23’ used on the Air Jordan XI. There was in fact a general release version of the Nike Blazer from over a year ago that many dubbed the ‘Space Jam’ Blazer, but those didn’t feature the signature patent leather. More images await you below, so check out the gallery and go to Desp1’s webstore at FreshAndFly to cop one of the six available pairs.
the 23 on the back looks kinda awkward but still a decent looking shoe. props to the dude who made this
