Fans of the Nike Blazer love it for its concise design. Originally released in 1973 as a basketball sneaker, the shoe was later adopted by the skating community, but is now largely worn for style. Hugely limited paneling means that color and texture are brought to the forefront permitting bold hues and plush materials.
This spring Nike is capitalizing on the simplicity of the upper and releasing a whole “Rainbow Pack.” Five pairs in different colored suedes make for most of the rainbow (Lucid Green, Team Orange, Game Royal, Tour Yellow, Varsity Red), while white ostrich embossed leather covers the swoosh and heels. “NIKE” is embroidered in multiple colors across the back, and branding on the tongue shares the colors as well.
Evidently the pack also includes tees and hats with the same multicolored “NIKE.” No word on a stateside release, but Atmos in Japan is currently accepting preorders for the proud pack.
