Since joining the Nike SB team, Georgia’s Grant Taylor has helped design some of the most compelling non-Nike Dunk options from the skateboard-obsessed imprint. For the latest Nike SB Blazer Low GT, the 30-year-old rider has employed another American muscle car-inspired ensemble, only this time highlighting a tan colorway.
Akin to other propositions under Taylor’s supervision, the newly-surfaced pair indulges in a combination of hairy suede and canvas materials across its upper. Synthetic leather profile swooshes and heel panels deviate from their tan surroundings in a “colorless” tone, with the latter components introducing ruby-colored “NIKE” text into the mix. Logos on the tongue and sock-liner also follow suit, and borrow an arrangement reminiscent of American muscle cars from the 1970s, in particular Chevrolet’s El Camino utility vehicle produced between 1968 and 1972. Underfoot, the skate-ready Nike Blazer rounds out the relatively-simple makeup with gum brown herringbone-patterned tread.
The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Jumbo is a women’s-exclusive take on the brand’s first basketball sneaker. Recently, the silhouette has appeared in a predominantly “Sail” colorway complete with pastel accents.
As if the exaggerated profile logos weren’t deviation enough from the model’s original design, synthetic leather construction is coupled with elastic fabric around the heel for fashion-forwardness and easy on-and-off functionality. Detailing on the laces and tip of the toe deviate from their “colorless” surroundings in shades of pink and purple, with the latter color also animating the jumbo branding at the profiles and spines. Underfoot, the Nike Blazer forgoes eye-catching hues in favor of a muted color palette. Yet, outsoles make a statement with their aggressive, reworked tread.
No stateside Nike.com release date has been confirmed, but that might change in the coming weeks. In any case, enjoy official images of the pair here below.

The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 wears many hats — some neutral, others quite vibrant. This pair is but one example of the latter, its accents bold in both color and texture.
But the foundation on which those features dress are conversely quite straightforward, opting for a standard white tumbled leather construction. The midsole, lace unit, and lining follow suit tonally, while the overlays prefer a more Spring-appropriate feel. Bright green and dark blues brighten up the forefoot and heel, sitting on opposite ends of the Swoosh and eye stay whose reptilian-inspired scales are shaded cream and aqua, respectively.

As the brand’s first basketball sneaker ever, the Nike Blazer Mid ’77 has helped the Swoosh dominate mainstream sneaker consciousness for decades. For its latest ensemble, the mid-top silhouette has one message: “Just Do It.”
Akin to handfuls of other iterations, the forthcoming pair indulges in a predominantly white color across its upper and sole unit. Profile swooshes feature a vibrant red trim, while stark green on the tongue label and upper heel underlay help create a Christmas-appropriate arrangement. Underfoot, herringbone-patterned tread also opts for green flair. The aforementioned three-word phrase, which has become synonymous with Nike, is stamped onto the lateral heel.

Over the years, Nike Basketball has gone on to produce some of the most innovative footwear for the sport, but it all started with one silhouette: the Nike Blazer Mid ’77.
For its latest proposition, the mid-top silhouette has indulged in a white, orange and bright blue colorway. Akin to vintage pairs, the newly-surfaced iteration opts for a rather “colorless” arrangement, with profile and heel logos opting for citrus flair. While not explicitly associated to basketball team colors of yesteryear, the upcoming sneakers would pair well with throwback jerseys and other memorabilia.
An official Nike.com release date hasn’t been disclosed by the brand, but this Nike Blazer is likely to arrive soon. In any case, enjoy pictures of the pair ahead.
After taking a look at official images, official release information has been announced for the KAWS x sacai x Nike Blazer Low Collection which will include four different colorways of the three-way collaboration. Chitose Abe’s sacai Blazer Low took sports performance heritage to a different realm, and now, Abe’s bringing along a friend to help ignite a new spark in her design. For her latest sacai Blazer Low, Abe’s invited Brooklyn-based artist KAWS to add his own surprise touches for their first ever sneaker collaboration.
Starting with the blank canvas of Abe’s doubled-up design, KAWS created custom colorways of contrasting hues inspired by his series of works, URGE. Dressed in this unique pop palette, each sacai x KAWS Blazer Low also sees KAWS’s legendary “XX” motif lasered onto the midsole.
Balancing Abe’s ethos of mixing harmony with abstraction, KAWS’s eye for vibrancy and boldness takes this sacai Blazer Low to a new aesthetic space. This colorway gets covered in Purple Dusk throughout the majority of the upper along with violet, grey, and red accents throughout. Look for the KAWS x sacai x Nike Blazer Low Purple Dusk to release through sacai and Kawsone.com on December 9th and on Nike SNKRS on December 10th for $140.

Though often likened to Off-White, the Nike Blazer Low Jumbo sets itself apart with its colorways. This pair, for example, is distinct from what Virgil Abloh has previously put out, toeing the line between neutrals and florals.
Across much of the upper, the shoe shadows existing pairs, mimicking their white leathers and grey suede toe. The paneling itself, however, strays far out of line, overlaying atop the profile and lace unit with a much larger footprint. Behind, the Swoosh and heel tab, though similarly enlarged, stand out even further thanks to their light pink coloring. All is then sat atop a relatively standard, Sail-shaded tooling.
Enjoy an official look at these below and sit tight as we await their Nike.com release.
Nike (NYSE:NKE -1.20%) will often give its consumers the chance to express themselves through customizable options on their sneakers. One of the themes that it has lent to its classic silhouettes is “Alter and Reveal” which allows wearers to tear away the first layer of the upper and style the shoe in any way they so choose. The latest to receive this treatment is this Nike Blazer Mid ‘77 Vintage “White/Game Royal” that has just popped up through official imagery.
The exterior of these lifestyle kicks are mostly done up in white. The overlays on the heels and adjacent to the throat are done up with an angelic finish as well as the mesh foreground layers on the side walls which create a fence-like pattern. If you cut or rip away the latter, the shoes unleash a wild all-over zebra pattern which is doused in an olive green hue to match up with the Nike branding that is planted into the rear. Other elements to call out on these Blazers are the premium leather Swooshes which contrast with a solid black as well as the foamy tongues which trade out the usual air branding for a “Alter and Reveal” and “Blazer 77” spell outs.
You can find detailed shots of the shoes in the gallery above and note that these are launching via Nike for $110 USD.
Already having surfaced in predominantly blue and purple colorways, the three-way collaboration between KAWS, sacai and the Nike Blazer Low has just appeared in a “Team Red/Hot Lava/White” style via official images.
Akin to its counterparts, as well as other footwear by Chitose Abe, the upcoming sneakers indulge in multi-layers across their upper and sole unit. Mostly constructed from synthetic leather, the pair’s top-half features disparate-colored swooshes, lace guards and tongues, with the most latter components donning co-branding while nodding to the Nike Blazer‘s past with exposed foam material. The midsole and outsole components forgo any vibrant “Team Red” and “Hot Lava” tones in favor of a “colorless” makeup that both further harkens back to the silhouette’s past, as well as allows KAWS and sacai’s design elements to revel in the spotlight; Brian Donnelly, however, carves two “X”s onto the midsole, confirming the shoes as an official collaboration.
A Nike SNKRS release date hasn’t been disclosed by the parties involved yet, but that’s likely to change soon. In the meantime, enjoy official images of the pair here below.
When Nike (NYSE:NKE -1.20%) first unveiled its wacky Blazer Mid ‘77 Jumbo back in August, HYPEBEAST said that because the original shoe is essentially a blank canvas it allows the Swoosh to reimagine the pair in completely new ways. Following in the footsteps of the first pair comes two new colorways, “White/White/Sail/Dark Russet” and “White/White/Sail/Black,” adding the same exaggerated design language that appeared on the inaugural “Black/Bright Crimson” offering.
The Blazer’s signature mid-top design remains apparent despite plenty more going on in Jumbo form. For example, we now find a jumbo-sized Swoosh hit up the mid-panel and wrap around the rear, sitting underneath an elastic heel section that’s fitted with heel tabs. Leather and suede have been used heavily throughout the shoe’s construction, with the latter appearing at the toe as per the Blazer aesthetic, while a padded exposed foam tongue can also be seen.
However, more uniquity appears towards the sole unit where an exaggerated herringbone outsole has been added as an ode to the typically flat sole on the original pair. The tongue tab that sits on top of the laces has also been supersized, while stitching all around is much more evident than before. Nike’s Blazer Mid ‘77 Jumbo in both “White/White/Sail/Dark Russet” and “White/White/Sail/Black” can be seen above and purchased from Nike’s website for a snip under £100 GBP (approx. $137.50 USD).
