Here are sample pictures of an upcoming Nike Blazer SB under the nickname “Shogo”. The details are presently unknown but it appears to be designed by one of professional skater Christian Hosoi’s friend. “Lordless Warrior” is written on the back heel tab and a Japanese character which stands for Ronin is seen on the heel. Ronins were ex-Japanese samurais that had either lost their lords or felt out of favor.
