Even though the Nike SB Blazer Mid isn’t the most popular shoe from the skate-focused sub-label, it is still a key piece of the action sports world.

It stays true to its roots while also having its own identity

The updated Nike Basketball design came out recently in a simple “Black” and “White” set. The Nike SB team has updated the design of the pair to make it more durable. The panels along the tongue have been made longer to protect the foot more, and they have also been made out of leather. Most of the upper is made of a mix of suede and fabric, and the profile swooshes have an embroidered edge that gives the next Nike Blazer some personality and strength. Underfoot, the sole units look the same, but the brown herringbone-patterned traction has a speckled finish that suggests it was made in part from recycled materials.


The most appealing thing about the Nike SB Blazer Mid is how useful it is. It can be dressed up or down, and the right stitching and hardware make it look good with a wide range of outfits. This sneaker is a good choice if you want a good casual sneaker.
