Style of the Nike Blazer Mid Off-White
Another Abloh and Nike creation, the Blazer Mid is composed of a variety of materials. This classic silhouette gets deconstructed, making the materials seem to appear like they have been flipped inside out. Furthermore, these sneakers are crafted with a mesh-like, semi-translucent synthetic material and incorporate leather and suede detailing on the upper.
Several colorways are released for this collaboration including the first one which is in white and gray, the Halloween-themed “Spooky Pack” that comes in the “Grim Reaper” and “All Hallow’s Eve” color scheme, and Serena William’s Wolf Grey Serena “Queen”.
With a trendy and versatile design, these sneakers can be styled with a casual or street-style ensemble. Almost any clothing piece can go well with these shoes on. One can go for jeans, joggers, and denim that are topped with shirts, hoodies, or long sleeves.
With a semi-translucent, mesh-like upper, this helps the shoes provide more breathability. The rubber toe cap also delivers protection and durability. Moreover, the durable ripstop material on the lateral side adds more texture to the shoes.
There is some cushioning, but it remains mostly faithful to the 1970s Blazer. The thick rubber midsole is reinforced around the toe which offers support. On the bottom of the sneakers, a herringbone blazer outsole features ample grip and traction.
History of the Nike Blazer Mid Off-White
Released in 1972, the Nike Blazer was one of the first basketball sneakers Nike ever created and was the first to carry the Swoosh. They were designed for immediate dominating impact on the court and to compete with other sneaker brands that were dominating the game. The shoes a feature straightforward design, leather upper, large Swoosh, and an outsole that is fused to the upper.
In the mid-1980s, a decade after its debut, the sneaker was wholly embraced by skate culture where the sneaker’s high ankle cut and full foot support were the perfect blueprints for skateboarding’s new aerial dynamism.
Collaborating with one of the most prominent streetwear designers of this decade, Virgil Abloh and Nike gives the Blazer Mid a remake, making it part of The 10 Icons and is now among the most sought-after models in the ongoing collaboration between Abloh and Nike.
