Earlier in the month, Nike introduced the Air Sesh, a Cortez-inspired newcomer that effectively became the brand’s only serious “dance shoe.” Fortunately, that is soon to change with this remodeled Blazer Mid, which features a number of movement-specific enhancements.

Aesthetically, the silhouette takes the outline of the original Blazer and fills in the blanks with a number of new parts. This creates a look more futuristic and metaphorically high energy like the art form itself. Suedes of all colors reinforce the construction from toe to profile, the former fixture additionally armored with a larger toe cap. Behind, the rear is given a leather exterior that gradually bells outward thanks to the collar’s heavier padding. Branding also sees a slight tweak: the tongue label is emblazoned with a more chaotic logo, while newly stitched-in pull tab displays “Just Do It” in elegant calligraphy.

Enjoy a look at the new Blazer Mid below in a couple of its inaugural kids colorways. If you’re hoping to secure a pair, there’s rumors of a November 21st release.
