Over 45 years after its original introduction, the Blazer is still busy reinventing its presence—but it's safe to say you've never seen the design quite like this. Backed by Japanese designer Yuta Hosokawa and his READYMADE label, this collaborative release features distorted dimensions and a DIY-inspired aesthetic that retains the style's core DNA while adding a handcrafted feel to the timeless silhouette.
On the upper, fabric overlays pay homage to READYMADE's penchant for utilising second-hand materials in pursuit of something new. Camouflage-inspired graphics and exposed foam put a fresh twist on the collar and tongue, while the midfoot Swoosh sports re-worked dimensions that nod to an OG version of the logo from 1971. Underneath, the midsole features about 15% vulcanised Nike Grind rubber and a stacked construction for durable support.
