Nike Blazer Low Vintage: A retro-styled everyday sneaker 

To the Blazer fans' delight, Nike ended 2020 with a bang by unveiling several Blazer variations in the last quarter of 2020. This beloved iteration was launched initially as a basketball shoe in the 1970s. It's a high-top basketball kick dressed with leather upper that slowly transitioned into casual footwear for its laidback style and comfort.  

In the 90s, Nike skateboarding adapted the Blazer silhouette and gave it a new life. Many skaters love the simple yet comfortable and grippy design of the Blazer. While the Thrashers dominated the street pavements, the Nike SB Blazer slowly gained traction in the SB world. 

In 2020, the Swoosh re-introduced the Blazer Low with a more retro style. The Blazer Low '77 Vintage is almost a 1 to 1 remake of its predecessor, added with a few details for a more retro style.

What's new?

To make it stand out from its equally famous ancestor, Nike added plush details on the Nike Blazer Low 77 Vintage. The Swoosh decided to add plush suede on the toe box and lateral side for a more premium look. To further enhance the cozy feel, this pair has an ultra supple collar for support and comfort.
