The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 “Motivation” Highlights Ben Simmons’ Pre-Game Mentality

Rising NBA superstar Ben Simmons knows that earning the #1 overall draft pick, the Rookie of the Year award, and two All-Star selections isn’t something that is easily obtained. It takes a tremendous amount of long hours in the gym, discipline on and off the floor, and a self-motivated mentality to perform at the highest level night in and night out. So for the Swoosh’s forthcoming “Pregame Pack”, they’re honoring the Sixers’ point guard/small forward’s competitive mindset through a specially crafted version of the Nike Blazer Mid ’77. Appropriately dubbed the “Motivation”, this rendition comes constructed with cracked-suede uppers color-blocked between grey backgrounds and yellow Swoosh logos, which opens up the doors for the text-based embellishments to take front and center. The lateral panels arrive lasered with the words “Pride and Passion” falling against the outline of a basketball, while the heel panels split between tonal engravings of the words “Dedication” and “Motivation”. Moreover, the footbeds are adorned with a collage of various graphics including that of heart silhouettes, “Mom” texts, doves, and more. Capture a detailed look at the pair here below, and find these dropping at House of Hoops locations and online at FootLocker.com come May 21st.

Other variations of the “Pregame Pack” include that of an Air Force 1 dedicated to De’Aaron Fox and Brittney Griner, as well as an Air Jordan 1 Mid for Luka Doncic.

In other news, here’s an in-depth look at the upcoming Chunky Dunkys.
