Yesterday Sneaker News gave you a look at the Nike Blazer Mid AB TZ, combining the omnipresent Nike Blazer with a zipper construction. It was noted yesterday that Nike Sportswear tends to avoid using zippers, but for whatever reason that may be, the designers were right to rethink that notion because the Blazer Mid AB is one of cleanest, lifestyle ready designs ever. The sneaker doubles perfectly as a sleek casual boot, with the tonal-black construction and rubberized toe-cap a la the All Court. The zippers are located conveniently on the medial sidewall of the shoe for easy access (and a no-show appearance). Jay-Z’s rocked Nike Blazers in the past before, and something tells us this All-Black Everything motif is right up his alley. Take another detailed look below and expect these to hit select Nike Sportswear retailers soon as they’ve already hit spots in Asia. via HB.
