Nike Blazer Low Floral History
Before Nike, there was Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS) founded by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight in 1964. The goal of this company was to distribute a specific Japanese footwear brand and its products in the United States. For a few years, everyone was content with this, but when the 70s came in, the two companies decided to part ways, and BRS went in a different direction into the same industry.
With renewed invigoration, Knight and Bowerman set to working with a Japanese factory to create and produce their very own line of sneakers that they called Nike. Success followed with the release of the newly minted company’s first sneaker in 1971.
In 1973, Nike went on to release what was then considered its best basketball sneaker, the Nike Blazer. Back then, the simple design that it had was already viewed as something wholly innovative and fabulous; an everyday white shoe plastered with a giant Swoosh was all the buzz. The sneaker was all the rage especially with basketball player George “The Iceman” Gervin promoting it on the court. It was only reasonable that people would go gaga for it but, as it is with fads, the hype died down as innovative sneaker designs rose.
Yet, the Blazer was adopted by another sport that breathed life into the sneaker once again; skateboarding. The Nike Blazer Low was released to give skateboarders variety and with it, a whole slew of different iterations. One of these iterations from Nike includes the women’s Blazer Low Floral. Already a legendary casual sneaker, this one gives the whole shoe spunk and a new personality with the floral design and the distinct color which makes it great for rocking out on the street.

For a Nike Blazer Low sneaker, the Low Floral offers a new style to a classic sneaker. It comes primarily in an all black color, including the outsole, with a university red Swoosh to contrast it. The sneaker can be easily styled with something as simple as jeans and a t-shirt. Joggers and short shorts will also work well with it.
