OFF-WHITE x Nike Blazer Low Dropping In Two Colorways

"LEGACY"

Since the untimely passing of Virgil Abloh in November, the state of his OFF-WHITE brand has been left in flux. But the brand intends to continue Abloh's vision and execute the multi-hyphenated creator's ethos. Among the visions left behind is the soon-to-be-released Nike Blazer Low. Originally part of 'The Ten' collection that introduced us to Nike x OFF-WHITE, the Blazer which made its appearance in a high form is being scaled down for the first time under Abloh's care. Utilizing elements from previous OFF-WHITE x Nike collaborations, such as; the circular cutouts that are aplenty across the full grain leather upper – to the enhanced lacing system that is held in place by Flywire loops, which we've seen on the track inspired models and the 50 Nike Dunks from last summer. In addition to traditional OFF-WHITE signature elements; the tab under the Swoosh, (now patented) zip tie and OFF branding. The curious twist however comes from the TPU heel component that draws DNA from the Air Terra Humara. And for those keeping score at home, that is the same early 2000s model that the NOCTA x Nike Hot Step was born from. The curiosity from Abloh came from a simple question:

Can we… splice the real Humara tooling and fuse it into a vulcanized sole?

Mission accomplished. The posthumous OFF-WHITE x Nike release will take place Friday, April 8th on SNKRS.
