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 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

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.

The Nike Blazer High Suede VNTG debuted tonal nylon tongues late last year, a shift from the Sail default since the series’ 2009 inception that leaves these new designs looking more like modern classics than true OGs. Nike Sportswear has four new pairs of these on the way for Q2, all of them cast in colors strikingly similar to earlier releases, it’s easy to see the huge impact that tongue really makes. Grey, purple and yellow pairs revisit a trio of 2010 releases, while the green is an update to one of the initial trio of Vintage Blazer Highs. Let us know if this new makeup beats the old style and pre-order your pair before they ship from End in April.

Nike Blazer High VNTG Premium – Size? Exclusive Pack

February 16th, 2012 by | 2 comments

nike blazer high vintage premium size pack 1 Nike Blazer High VNTG Premium   Size? Exclusive Pack

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.

Most sneakerheads, given three wishes, would almost certainly pick at least one of their holy grails, and since you’re not allowed to ask for more wishes, here’s another way of taking that theme meta.  Sneaker customizer and Blazer loyalist JBF is back with his latest take on the most classic of Nike Basketball silhouettes, this new Nike Blazer High ’Jafar’ custom inspired by the villain from Disney’s 1992 animated feature Aladdin.  There’s no Glibert Gottfried soundbites in the background, but the red suede, black leather and snakeskin Swooshes do indeed capture the feel of an evil villain who’s probably spent too much time out in the desert sun.  Click through to get a better look and let us know how these compare to JBF’s other Blazer customs.  via PaintOrThread

Nike Blazer High Nylon VNTG – Electrolime

December 30th, 2011 by | No comments

nike blazer high vintage lemon white Nike Blazer High Nylon VNTG   Electrolime

In our recent look at the ‘Gorge Green’ Nike Blazer High VNTG release, we noted that the unfinished nylon tongue is now a tonal match to the suede uppers for the first time in the series’ three years. Regular Sneaker News readers will know that’s not the only bit of fresh news regarding nylon on the Vintage Blazer, as this new Electrolime edition makes three after our preview of red and blue pairs back at the start of the month. With these, we’re instantly reminded of the variety of nylon Dunks we got in 2009 in what turned out to be a fond farewell to the Vandal as a regular part of the NSW core lineup, but perhaps these satiny Blazer Highs can fill the gap while we wait for new colorways on that strapped classic. Click through to see more of how Electrolime looks on ballistic nylon instead of the Foamposite material on which it’s been featured most prominently of late, and pre-order your pair of this February 2012 release right now with End.

Nike Blazer High Suede VNTG Premium – Gorge Green

December 29th, 2011 by | 1 comment

nike blazer high suede vntg gorge green 1 Nike Blazer High Suede VNTG Premium   Gorge Green

Since its debut in early 2009, the Nike Blazer High VNTG has followed a simple recipe: start with slightly distressed suede to the upper, add Sail on the laces, unfinished tongue, heel tab, Swoosh and sole, then apply a slight yellowing to the last of those parts to achieve a pre-oxidized look.  It’s a can’t-miss combination that can be replicated across a huge range of earthy and otherwise rustic shades, so what happens when Nike Sportswear makes a subtle shift and changes one fo these key components?  If anything, the new Vintage Blazers are even better now with the classic rough-around-the-edges tongue now coming in a tonal nylon compliment to the suede shade, this new Gorge Green edition a sign of good things to come that’s available now at select NSW retailers like Wish.
