Since the series launched in early 2009, Nike Sportswear’s Vintage Blazers have almost exclusively come in suede uppers to match the rustic look of their oxidized, pre-yellowed soles. The color code for just about every pair has been ‘xxxxx/Sail’, with the off-white shade serving as an antiqued anchor that brings the classic look home, but this latest duo manages to flip the script while still maintaining the VNTG Blazer essence. And with these two new Nike Blazer High VNTG Premium releases, Size? has now authored double as many leather pairs as NSW themselves, these latest pairs a follow-up to last November’s successful two-pack. These will be limited to 500 pairs each, with the green-Swooshed edition arriving online on Monday, February 20th and the purple pair coming up later this year.
