Using a premium theme, this Nike Blazer comes with a soft leather upper while Obsidian Blue covers it. Swapping the traditional lacing system, we now have a zipper. Completing this simple look is the use of White which runs across the midsole and extends through the outsole. One of the first basketball sneakers Nike ever produced; the Nike Blazer was released in 1972. With a simple design and an extremely large swoosh; the Blazer was created to compete with the adidas and Converse sneakers that were dominating the hardwood. This Nike NIKELAB Blazer Advanced version features a buttery soft leather dark obsidian upper and a thick white sole. To make it even more special it has no laces but a zipper.
