NIKE BLAZER HIGH The Nike Blazer High is one of Nike’s oldest designs, and one of their first basketball sneakers after making the transition from offering strictly runners. The sneaker debuted in 1972 and was worn perhaps most famously by George Gervin. The Nike Blazer High is a frequent Retro model as well, having countless releases under the Nike Sportswear and Nike SB lines in current times.

Nike Lunar Blazer

The Nike Blazer is about to celebrate its 40th anniversary, and there’s a good reason even people who’ve never set their feet to griptape absolutely love the Nike SB drops.  The Blazer is an icon of timeless basketball style, but vulcanized soles are also a whole heckuvalot more comfy when they’re aided by Zoom Air inserts as in the case of those SBs.  And we’ve seen the 6.0 Action Sports division trot out a similar embedded cushion made of LunarLon recently, but what would happen if the Swoosh’s original b-ball design got a full-on tech refresh?  It’d look something like the photos Tung Ho just tweeted wherein a mesh-uppered Blazer hightop is depicted atop a LunarRacer-like sole that both makes obvious its upgrade and ties in perfectly with the ‘Dunkman’-leaning colorup.  These aren’t expected to see the light of day at retail, but if Nike Sportswear ended up selling these, would you buy a pair?

Nike Blazer High – Stussy-Inspired Size? Exclusives

April 21st, 2012 by | 3 comments

nike blazer hi vntg stussy inspired 7 Nike Blazer High   Stussy Inspired Size? Exclusives

Stussy has enjoyed a spike in Sneaker News mentions this week thanks to a collaboration with Converse Japan and a preview from Nike Sportswear that recalls memories of a milestone teamup from a decade ago.  When the Stussy x Nike Blazer Mid dropped in 2002, the very concept of collaborative marketing was still in its infancy and the Blazer silo had yet to be fully restored to its rightful place in the Swoosh canon.  Just ten years later, we’ve seen the sneakerhead scene evolve in ways we could have never expected, and meanwhile, the trusty ol’ Blazer just ports these classic Stussy-penned colorways over to another (almost identical) silhouette.  This grey/green tribute is limited to 500 pairs and they’re moving fast as Size? exclusives.

Stussy x Nike Blazer Inspired Colorways Coming in 2012

April 18th, 2012 by | 4 comments

stussy x nike blazer inspired colorways 2012 1 Stussy x Nike Blazer Inspired Colorways Coming in 2012

The Blazer High vs Mid discussion is a repeated point of contention among sneakerheads who recognize how similar those silhouettes really are, but the real question with these new pairs is who is responsible for their creation? These two new Nike Blazer Highs look a whole lot like the Stussy Blazer Mids that dropped back in 2002 when collaborative releases were in their infant stage, and their 10th anniversary timing begs the question if the Double-S will be involved in this celebration. Either way, the colorways are quite similar, and aside from the High/Mid differences (outrigger/’foxing’, Swoosh shape, etc.), it’s worth noting that these feature a tumbled texture on the upper wheras the ’02s offered a smoother leather. The silver pair also appears to feature a bit of the VNTG series’ pre-yellowing on their woodgrain vulc sole sidewalls; would you rather see an NSW Vintage release or a Stussy collab redux when these hit retailers like size? later this year? Let us know when you click through for more images and stick with Sneaker News for more info.

Nike Blazer High VNTG ‘Cool Grey’

March 30th, 2012 by | 2 comments

nike blazer high vntg cool grey 1 570x381 Nike Blazer High VNTG Cool Grey

Sneaker News has shown you a fairly large set of upcoming Nike Blazer High VNTG releases this month, each set offering a subtle variation from the formula that’d been this series foundation for about three years. In the case of the pair pictured above, it’s one of three to come with canvas uppers and suede relegated to the overlay sections, and that new material selection appears to have been all for the best on this new Cool Grey release. Its worn appeal transfers perfectly to this new build and a purple sole and embroidery give these a frosty finish. More images follow the jump below, where you can see these in detail before purchasing from a Nike Sportswear retailer like Titolo.

Nike Blazer High VNTG – April 2012

March 28th, 2012 by | No comments

nike blazer vtng sz march12 10 Nike Blazer High VNTG   April 2012

The Nike Blazer High VNTG was introduced in 2009 and except for two leather pairs that year, followed the same formula for each of its releases through last November: add a Sail Swoosh, sole, tongue and laces to a single-colored suede upper.  The rustic shades combined with pre-yellowing on those off-white parts gave these an old-meets-new vibe, and then a pack of them apparently made of spare parts from earlier releases flipped the script just before last Thanksgiving.  A short while later, new leather pairs released, word of nylon drops to come surfaced and now just a few months later we’ve arrived at a point where just days after the first canvas-uppered pairs have dropped, here’s another duo with a brand new twist on the old recipe.  These add tonal Swooshes to compliment your choice of lime green or bold red and both are available now at select Nike Sportswear dealers like Size?

Nike Blazer High VNTG ‘Hazelnut’

Suede is so much a part of Nike Sportswear’s Vintage Blazer lineup that the majority of them have mentioned the nappy stuff in their official names right on the box. And while there’s a bit it on this new Nike Blazer High VNTG, expect no explicit mention, as the upper for this new tonal brown edition is primarily a canvas twill. These new images reveal a stronger contrast between those materials than previously indicated, this earthy range perhaps the single pair best suited to the pre-yellowed sole that we’ve seen to date. Click through to see how these rustic elements combine with pristine white Swooshes and laces and grab yours at NSW retailers like Titolo.

Nike Blazer High VNTG ND

March 10th, 2012 by | No comments

nike blazer high vntg nd 1 Nike Blazer High VNTG ND

A select few leather drops notwithstanding , the Nike Blazer High Vintage lineup stayed with a simple colored suede plus Sail Swoosh, sole and tongue formula for nearly three years before going with a tonal tongue/laces setup late last year. More change is on the way for 2012, but unlike the tongue substitution, these represent an expansion of the available offerings rather than just a shift in template. Both are readily apparent when you see how the suede overlay sections blend with canvas uppers on these three new Blazer High VNTG ND drops for summer. A Tidepool Blue pair is the easy standout in this trio, but Cool Grey and Hazelnut editions hold their own and are perhaps even more versatile than the soft blue design. Click through to see all three of them and pre-order yours now from End.
