If you’re still not sure what the significance behind “Area 72” is, don’t look any further than the Nike Blazer (not that you could). Area 72 is a combination of Area 51, the government research locale that dabbles in the investigation of unidentified flying objects and beings of outer space, and the year 1972, which is the when Nike created its first basketball shoe; Area 72 also serves as the title of this amazing capsule, which includes the Blazer and four other models – all designed with intense graphics and materials never seen before.
