Who should NOT buy it
If you need sneakers with a superb amount of arch support, the Nike Blazer Mid 77 SE is not the one for you. Like its Nike Blazer Mid siblings, this model feels flat; thus, some users insert their preferred orthotics for better comfort.

Nike Blazer Mid 77 SE: Premium kick with a retro b-ball flair
The women-exclusively Nike Blazer Mid 77 SE was derived from the 1972 classic basketball footwear called Nike Blazer. Although it received a fair share of popularity in the '80s, the Blazer almost became extinct in the '90s.
Thanks to the Nike SB line, the Blazer was given a second life, this time as grippy skateboarding footwear.
The Blazer has undergone countless reinterpretations over time. One of them is the Blazer Mid 77 SE which features a retro style with updated details. The minimalist upper is made with synthetic leather added with buttery suede on the toe box and quarter panel for a luxurious vibe.
Nike Blazer Mid 77 SE vs Nike Blazer Mid 77 Vintage
The Nike Blazer Mid 77 SE and Mid 77 Vintage are virtually identical. Both models are dressed with a minimalist upper with an eye-catching Swoosh logo that gives that vintage touch.
On their collars, Nike inserted ample padding with large Nike branding on the heel. These sneakers kept the deconstructed unfinished tongue that exposes the foam which completes the retro look.
True to its Special Edition name, Nike added premium details that makes the Mid 77 SE stand out. Unlike the Vintage version, the addition of tiny metal Swooshes on the lateral and medial sides of the SE gives a more premium vibe to a heritage profile.
Also, the tread pattern on the SE's insole celebrates women-empowerment and sisterhood.
