The Nike Blazer has been a staple in the Swoosh arsenal for decades. Originally a basketball shoe, then a Nike SB staple, the vintage look have made the Blazer an easy give for NikeLab and it's premium design aesthetic. The Nike Blazer Advanced takes a nod from the luxe leather silhouettes we've seen lately from NikeLab x Nike Sportswear while offering a completely different look from the traditional Blazer. A futuristic leather upper with asymmetrical zippers replace the normal lacing system for a look that is more polished and refined.
The result is somewhat reminiscent of Sacai and Nike’s collaboration late last year with the modernized upper. Personally, I'm a big fan of this take on the Blazer and I could totally see myself rocking this with a cute jumper dress and tights or a pair of thin slacks, a cute tee and a trench.
