The Nike Blazer Mid has become staple within many sneaker enthusiast’s rotations for its affordability and versatility. Scattered throughout its catalog, however, have been experimental, limited ensembles that have undoubtedly raised eyebrows. Case in point: one of three upcoming collaborations with Japan’s READYMADE.

Also rumored to launch with “Persian Violet” and “Pure Platinum” accents, the collaborative pair has recently been teased in its “Black/Vast Grey/Volt/Total Orange” colorway. While the model’s shape is familiar, most of its components have been warped by the Japanese brand: profile swooshes have been narrowed and shortened; toecaps and midsoles have been given a layered look, with the latter resembling haphazardly-shaped foam; and tongues have been made taller than the collar. Two-tone laces and camouflage patterns around the collar and on the tongue further add to the proposition’s experimentation. Lastly, READYMADE’s branding stamps the heel, and is accompanied by three swooshes forming a triangle.

Enjoy a first-look at this mid-top Blazer here below, as you wait for official Nike SNKRS release details to emerge before 2020 ends.

For more from NIKE, Inc., the Air Jordan 4 “Fire Red” arrives in November.
