Virgil Abloh didn’t just pick his favorite silhouettes to furnish his collaborative collection with Nike. “The Ten” is representative of several things, one of them being time. Spanning decades plucking the most impactful silhouettes of their day, it was almost certain that the Nike Blazer would make the cut.
A former hoops silhouette that over the years transitioned into something much greater, the Off-White x Nike Blazer takes the model’s bold Swoosh branding and empowers it even more, emboldening the symbol by bleeding it onto the midsole. Its “REVEALING” concept reigns true throughout the hand-cut, open-source upper, something that Abloh began to tinker with during his very first visit to Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon long before he begin work on this collection in October 2016.
Like the four remaining pairs of the “REVEALING” offering, the Off-White x Nike Blazer will be available at select NikeLab global retailers throughout the month of September in fashion week cities. A global release will take place in November.
