I really didn’t want these. 😀
But I bid a ridiculously low amount in the last seconds of an auction
and even succeeded.
Yes, it is worn but a vintage sneaker doesn’t look too bad worn.
The Blazer is a classic Nike that usually performs on the quality battlefield too.
The color might be a bit hard to combine
but a jeans and a white shirt matches anything…
It was Nike’s first basketball shoe
and without the famous Air-cushioning under the heel,
an upper made from leather, a nylon mesh tongue and a herringbone sole
were the pinnacle of features for a basketball sneaker.
It may not be the first time they used a Swoosh on a sneaker,
a feat that goes to the Cortez,
but it was the first sneaker that brought the Swoosh to the hardwood.
Famously worn by George Gerwin.
It is as classic as can be, so if you don’t mind high tops
you can easily wear those and never be out of style.
Get it if you want a sneaker for everyday in a delicious colorway.
Don’t get it if you don’t like Nike.
It is an us 8.
