Nike’s top lifestyle models have had collegiate color schemes for a long time. The brand is constantly reworking silhouettes like the Nike Blazer for different options in its already large catalog. The model was recently released in a “Team Red” mid-cut version with a retro look.

Leather panels give a durable shell around your feet and add a luxury vibe

The latest version of the University has a lot of burgundy shading. The leather panels of the upper are all covered in burgundy, and the forefoot has matching suede overlays. The burgundy color is also used for the Swoosh, the shaggy inner lining, the nylon tongue construction, and the “NIKE” branding on the back of the shoe. The darker logos are highlighted by a white shade. The lighter color is also seen on the laces and textured midsole of the model, giving it a retro look.


The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 is a classic sneaker, so it was a natural choice for its latest makeover, which gave it an athletic, collegiate look. Team Red members are using their famous passion and attention to detail to make sure this pair stays true to the original design.
