History of the Nike Blazer Mid Vintage

Introduced in 1972, the Nike Blazer was originally crafted from leather with a mesh nylon tongue and an oversized logo on the sides. Manufactured as a basketball kick, its name was derived from the local basketball team where the company resides – Portland Trail Blazers.
