A classic among Nike’s extensive catalog, the Nike Blazer has seen a resurgence over the past several years. Specific pairs, including the classic “White/Black” iteration, the Slam Jam collaboration, and READYMADE efforts have only propelled the silhouette back into the mainstream. Joining the roster, a faded black SB iteration is set to enter the fray.
Skate sneakers are meant for skating, and as such should be able to take a beating. This iteration, more so than others, is asking to be worn. A faded hairy suede runs throughout the upper, with blotches of lighter suede running across the otherwise darker silhouette. Similarly, the midsole appears in distressed fashion, having already undergone a pre-worn aesthetic.
The Nike SB Blazer Mid “Faded Black” is slated to arrive on Nike.com for $110 this April. This is a must-cop for skaters looking to wear their sneakers. Let us know your thoughts on social media.
