The NIKE X READYMADE BLAZER MID features a deconstructed DIY approach that reimagines Nike’s earliest basketball shoe.
“We deconstructed the Blazer and recreated it without losing sight of its DNA,” READYMADE designer Yuta Hosokawa reveals. “I have been playing basketball since I was in third grade. The first pair of shoes I bought for myself were Nikes. That’s how I came to like fashion.”
Featuring a layered upper with a splotched foam base and angled leather side panels, the half-stitched Swoosh branding harks back to the 1971 version of the logo. Exposed foam surrounds the collar and tongue, while three different sets of laces over the toe box and across the midfoot create an additional layered, hatched effect. The shoe utilises Nike Grind, a mix of recycled materials originating from Nike manufacturing scrap and worn-out sneakers reference READYMADE’s upcycling philosophy.
