The Converse Chuck Taylor is about as classic as sneakers get. And the Blazer has quite a following of its own. So for this Blazer, Nike lifted the design of the Chuck and applied it to this newer silhouette.
Almost every detail was transferred over. Metal eyelets hold the white laces against the black canvas upper, also. This SB will almost certainly never release, as this sample appears to be one of very few right in existence. The two details that stand out the most are the tongue, which is very thin canvas with stitching on the edges, and the heel label, an almost identical remake of the Chuck’s. You can see the comparison in the pics after the jump.
