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.
