Who would have thought, one of the kingpins of casual in the sneaker world, the Nike Blazer Low can actually look so opulent, with a little nostalgic oriental touch, and a little imperial imagination thrown in. Apparently, with the right color combination involving some opulent gold touches in the quilted stitches and Swoosh and heel tab, paired with a stately navy, the Blazer Low can be transformed into something that demands both respect and attention. The new Blazer Low comes in two colorways, a navy with gold as previously mentioned, and another in a rather luxurious greenish, turquoise shade paired with metallic black. The interesting design detail is the “Nike” logo on the heel tab which has been rendered in that famed Chinese takeout font…commonly associated with Chinatown. Definitely an interesting departure from the Blazer Lows and Nike design aesthetics we are used to. Perhaps a simpler concoction and continuation of the World Expo fever? Stay tuned for more release information to come. Available for pre-order now online at atmos.
