Nike x READYMADE Blazer Mid

Published By

The Blazer Mid, Nike’s earliest basketball shoe, has the kind of heritage and history in one silhouette that most footwear companies can’t match — and it’s not even close. Never a company to rest on its laurels, Nike turned toward a cult favorite designer to make the legendary silhouette even cooler, if such a thing is possible. The Nike x READYMADE Blazer Mid takes everything that makes the Blazer Mid so effortlessly cool, deconstructs it, and then puts it back together in an eye-catching and innovative way, and it’s the type of thing only the footwear giant can pull off.

The Nike x READYMADE Blazer Mid features plenty of design inspo from READYMADE Founder Yuta Hosokawa, an avid basketball fan who put his own spin on the classic style. In this case, the Blazer Mid now includes exposed foam surrounding the collar and tongue, plus a textured midsole designed using clay molds for added volume. The thinner and longer Swoosh logo harkens back to the 1971 version of the logo, while angled leather side panels are a truly striking touch. Everything you love about the Blazer Mid is here, only it’s even better than you thought possible.
