Finding a sneaker colorway that won’t look out of place as you saunter through all that pesky foliage can be a difficult task, but thankfully not one that Nike has slept on. Originally one of the most groundbreaking and iconic basketball sneakers in the ’70s, the brand with the Swoosh has delved into their vault and resuscitated the Blazer Mid Premium just in time for fall.
Featured in an appropriate red colorway, the blazer mid features a suede upper which is offset by white accents on the Nike Swoosh and branding on the heel. Further contrast comes by way of the white vulcanized rubber midsole, while a gum, herringbone-patterned outsole on the under harks back at the silhouette’s storied history while providing traction and stability.
