Nike Vintage Blazer Low
It borders on cliché, but the Blazer really might be the definitive Nike shoe — a perfect palette for the Swoosh, fat belly or otherwise. The 1973 masterpiece changed the game and aided in taking the court share from rival manufacturers. This low-cut version’s colourway and material (which we believe is a late ’70s design that was never released in the States, but Japan never got the Bruin) picks make it interesting. It took a while, but the Blazer seems to be blowing up beyond a core band of fanatics after a decade of retros.
