Looking for an icon? Check out Nike’s latest Blazer Collection
We always get asked — which Nike pair should I get that’ll remain timeless? The usual answers revolve around the Cortez, Dunk or the Air Force 1, or if you’re going for comfort, the Air Max becomes an option. But if you’re looking for a pair that’s not of the norm (at least the last few years), you might want to look at another classic — the Nike Blazer. The shoe has withstood the test of time, from the basketball court to skate, the clean silhouette is one of those pairs that’ll go with whatever you have on, whatever your style may be.
This season, Nike puts a focus on the iconic sneaker, bringing back the classic Blazer Mid ’77, but in two iterations — the Blazer Mid ’77 Infinite and the Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage.
The Blazer Mid ’77 Infiinite takes the classic to another level. Durable rubber details are added on the toe, heel, and side, while the piping on the distorted Swoosh is also a welcome addition. True to the ’77 design, exposed foam can be found on the tongue, while pops of color on the side brings flare to the mid top.
Now if you want to keep it truly old school, you should take a look at the Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage. From the vintage finish on the midsole to the quality leather that definitely gives you that made-to-be-worn feel. The timeless design is one you should have in your sneaker arsenal.
The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Infinite and Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage are now available at select Nike Park, Titan stores as well as nike.com/ph. The Blazer Mid ’77 Infinite retails for Php 5,895 while the Vintage retails for Php 4,995.
