New to the line of Nike SBs is the Blazer Premium SE in “Cool Grey” colorway. In taking the classic Blazer silhouette, Nike has given it an understated approach through grey-scale that sees the upper in tonal greys throughout. The rubber outsole comes in white — a compliment to the vastness of greys above it — and sports a herringbone textured pattern not only for design, but for traction and protection as well. Without overdoing monochrome, the undersole comes in a light brown gum for that subtle pop — if there’s even such a thing. The “Premium” part lies in the use of suede for the upper, while the sneaker’s other components utilize what should be found in any given skate shoe: EVA foam midsole for cushioning, gusseted tongues with elastic straps for support, and what appears to be protected toecaps for that grip tape game. The Nike SB Blazer Premium SE “Cool Grey” sneaker is now available for $85 USD from Nike accounts and online retailers such as The Premier Store.
