A long-standing feature of the Swoosh brand’s footwear collection, Nike Blazer shoes (named for the NBA team the Portland Trail Blazers) continue to be a favourite among the sneakerhead community. Since their debut in 1973, these old-school trainers have received dozens of re-releases, bringing back classic variations, such as the vintage Mid 77. A huge reason for the success of the Blazers is their crisp, no-nonsense design, which began as a simple high top. Today, Nike fans return to this gracefully aging silhouette in pursuit of timeless style, their eyes—and feet—magnetised to the durable leather uppers, rubber soles, and various colourways on offer. If you get excited by the idea of revisiting a classic basketball-turned-skateboarding shoe, these kicks should be at the top of your to-buy list!
