Who should NOT buy it

Because of its narrow width, the Nike Blazer Mid 77 is not for you if you have broad feet. This kick might feel weird and uncomfortable, especially on the toe box area. We highly recommend skimming through the all-rounder Vans Half Cab or the renowned Nike Air Jordan Mid.

Straightforward design

The Nike Blazer Mid 77 features a crisp upper with the noticeable Swoosh branding on the sides. Stitched overlays, meanwhile, add heritage style while enhancing durability. This clean and simple style makes it adaptable to countless attires, such as jeans, shorts, and skirts.

Feels rigid at first!

Fresh from the box, this sneaker feels a tad inflexible; thus, we needed to break them in a little to fully enjoy the comfortable strides. 

It feels cozy on the ankles

Besides holding the foot securely, this kick's tall and cushioned collar adds to its overall comfort and support. Because of this, we found it to be suitable for all-day use. The downside is, just like most high-top sneakers, this model feels a bit tricky to put on; thus, it is not for those who prefer easy slide-in kicks.

Long-lasting construction

Despite its budget-friendly range, we found this pair to be very hard-wearing. After cruising the streets for hours over several days, this kick showed no visible wear.
