Nike & READYMADE Break Down The Blazer In This DIY-Inspired Shoe Collab

Feb 16, 2021

Although it was originally developed as an experimental basketball shoe during the early 1970s, the Nike Blazer has since become a mainstay amongst the sneaker savvy and the style-conscious. As such, these days, it’s ubiquitous in the world of footwear fashion, with brands eagerly switching up the silhouette in order to offer a take that’s entirely their own.

For its latest sneaker collab, Nike has partnered with Japanese-based READYMADE to — quite literally — break down the Blazer. The result is what you see before you: a deconstructed DIY approach to the sneaker that’s rich with unique details. For instance, it features a layered upper with three sets of laces spanning the toe box and midfoot as well as the swoosh design of the original 1971 model. Accented by some exposed foam around the collar and on the tongue, it makes for an interesting hatched effect that’s decidedly different from other co-branded Blazers. And in order to add some volume to the midsole, READYMADE used some clay molds to give it a more textured aesthetic. Riding on an outsole made with 15% recycled Nike Grind material, this is one Blazer that’s cut from a different cloth. It drops on February 27th for $160.

Purchase: $160
