Memories - Nike Blazer


Nike Blazer in blue suede with white SWOOSHThe first two products Nike introduced to the basketball market were the low-top "Bruin", and the high-top "Blazer." I remember in late 1976 looking for a some new blue and white sneakers... but I got the Pro-Keds suede high-tops instead... at least at that time, I thought the Blazer was "too soft."

Nike Blazer Canvas high-top, white canvas, natural SWOOSHThis is the Blazer Canvas high-top. The canvas version of the Bruin, which followed later, was called the "All Court" (and it probably got used on most of them).
 

Nike Blazer high-top, white leather, red SWOOSHNike produced the Blazer in numerous colors of suede and smooth leather.
 

Nike Blazer Mid 73 (retro reissue), black canvas, gray SWOOSHAround 2005, Nike made a reissue as the "Blazer Mid." A ruler check found they were "mid" in name only.
