The Nike Blazer

Known for its classic mid-cut silhouette, the Blazer has long been a favorite of skateboarders and streetwear enthusiasts alike and is one of Nike's oldest sneaker models. The Blazer is named after the Portland Trail Blazers, a regional NBA team.
Despite its simplicity, it has been used in some of the most exciting collaborations, taking the model to new heights.
Urban artist Futura 2000 brought the Blazer back to prominence in 2003 by creating a modified version and releasing only 1,000 pairs.
In 2013, both Comme Des Garçons and Virgil Abloh's Off-White collaborated on the Blazer, further enhancing the model's popularity.

Nike Blazer Technology

A variety of industries, including luxury and skateboarding, have adopted the Nike Blazer since its introduction in 1973 as a basketball sneaker. At the time, it was one of the most technologically advanced sneaker designs for basketball, featuring a Swoosh logo on a plain white shoe. The upper is made of leather, the tongue is made of mesh nylon, and the sole is made of rubber with a textured vulcanized finish.
Skaters preferred the Blazer for its rubber sole and durable suede and leather upper, which helped them stay on their skateboards. In the mid-2000s, Nike introduced the Nike SB Blazer specifically for skaters. As part of a collaboration with pro skater Lance Mountain, Nike released the first model in 2005. It is designed with Zoom Air technology and features a padded collar and cushioned insoles.
