Even as the calendar enters its final stretch, the vegetable tan leather sneaker trend of 2016 shows no sign of abating, with these Vans and adidas Ultra BOOSTs both having emerged in the past month alone. NikeLab first entered the Vanchetta Tan game when they dropped an Air Force 1 iteration way back in January, and now they’re at it again, this time re-working the iconic Advanced Blazer.
The debonair silhouette is a world removed from the OG basketball Blazer, and comes laceless atop an all-white midsole. A slightly less flamboyant black leather colorway is also available, which, let’s face it, will be about 1000 times easier to keep clean in these months of ice and grit.
In other NikeLab news, the Nike VaporMax collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS has arrived and it does not disappoint.
