According to Tetsu Nishiyama of WTAPS fame, an original artwork changed at least 40-percent no longer has its rights. Since 1993, the Japanese designer has been producing product using this notion via the aptly-named FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS (FPAR) brand. Before the year closes out, the provocative label has brought flexed its creative muscles on a grey-colored Nike SB Blazer Low.
While not its first collaboration with Nike SB, FPAR’s latest swoosh-branded endeavor delivers a tamer proposition than October 2019’s Air Jordan 6-inspired Nike Dunk. High-quality suede covers most of the pair’s upper, with interruptions arriving at the lateral forefoot and profiles. “Cool Grey” and “Wolf Grey” tones divvy up the low-top sneaker, although panels across the sidewalls introduce eye-catching patterns and textures. The Japanese label’s abbreviation is embroidered onto the left shoe’s heel, while lace dubraes on the same shoe boast the four-letter diminutive, too. Right shoes feature complementary branding, which includes a “nike sb” logo that contrasts the inside-out label that appears on the top of the left shoe’s tongue. Lastly, skate-ready sole units underfoot round out the greyscale arrangement with a dark makeup.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate an overseas Nike SNKRS launch on December 20th; a stateside release may follow, but it’s highly unlikely.
For non-skateboarding propositions from the NIKE, Inc. empire, check out the Air Jordan 3.
