As NIKE, Inc. continues its “Move to Zero” campaign, the North American conglomerate continues to outfit some of its most classic silhouettes in sustainable materials. Case in point: a newly-surfaced Nike Blazer Mid ’77 featuring Nike Regrind tooling.
Popularized by the Space Hippie collection, the trash-turned-sneaker material maintains its inaugural dark grey composition on the forthcoming pair. Shades of off-white cover most of the mixed-materials upper, with suede across the mid-foot boasting the darkest hue. Profile swooshes deviate from their surroundings in both hue and material, as they deliver “Armory Navy” tumbled leather to the once-basketball-court-staple. Orange joins the mix on the exposed foam tongue and suede “NIKE”-branded heel, while a Nike Sportswear swoosh wheel takes over the lateral heel. Directly underfoot, a “Glacier Ice” midsole injects modern flair to the 1970s Nike Blazer, just as the outsole does.
Elsewhere under the Swoosh banner, the Air Max 96 II continues to emerge in non-original styles.
