A design built around the style’s core DNA, the Blazer is back after over 45 years of its original introduction. The collaboration with Japanese designer Yuta Hosokawa and his READYMADE label features distorted dimensions and a DIY-inspired aesthetic giving a handcrafted feel to this timeless silhouette.
The upper has fabric overlays that pay homage to READYMADE’s penchant for employing second-hand materials in pursuit of something new. Standard Nike foams and about 15 percent Nike Grind rubber: materials meant to enter the waste stream are utilized underneath the shoes’ angular midsole. On the collar and tongue are camouflage-inspired graphics and exposed foam that provide a freshness to the design of this pair. The midfoot Swoosh has re-worked proportions that refer to an OG version of the logo from 1971.
