Nike SB has been pushing out innovative and appealing product over the course of the past few months, and the latest release to join in the festivities is the SB Blazer Mid Edge — which has been chopped up to create a new “Hack Pack” style. Arriving in “Laser Blue/Watermelon” and “White/Midnight Navy,” this in-line design draws its cues from popular Nike collaborators like Off-White and sacai for a perfectly imperfect deconstructed look.

Uppers are constructed of a sturdy and classic canvas, with each pair presenting a different look: the “Laser Blue/Watermelon” opts for a vibrant mix of neon-adjacent hues while the “White/Midnight Navy” offers a more toned-down style. The lateral Swoosh is absent from its usual perch on the midfoot, with nothing more than loose threads showing where it would usually be placed.

However, it’s not gone completely. If you look at these Blazer Mid Edges from the top down, you’ll notice that this Swoosh has been juxtaposed onto the toebox, where it cleverly serves as an asymmetrical mudguard. It’s then secured by another triangular-shaped overlay that hangs down from the bottom eyestays, almost serving as a small wing of sorts.

Where the lateral side is an exercise in vivid conceptual branding, the lateral side is all classic. Swooshes are left completely intact and lead up into a heel tab with further Nike branding. Each tongue is doubled up — providing the aforementioned sacai cues — and proffers an interesting twist: the first tongue uses exposed foam in classic Blazer style, while the overlaid tongue is significantly thinner, and is equipped with a SB Dunk Low Pro hit. Finally, the midsole features an extra layer that wraps around its rear half for a little more texture.

Blazers of both the Nike Sportswear and SB variety have been enjoying a moment over the past months, and this fun-loving “Hack Pack” iteration will aid the celebration when it releases at The Berrics’ Canteen and on Nike SNKRS China December 31 for ¥699 CNY (approximately $100 USD).

There’s plenty of other compelling releases hitting shelves this week, so be sure to check out our Best Footwear Drops list to see what else is en route.
