One of the many notable names under Nike‘s Nike SB umbrella, Grant Taylor is also the pitchman for the SB Blazer Low GT — an upgraded iteration of the classic SB Blazer. Its latest colorway is a personal one: it draws on Taylor’s love for the Chevrolet El Camino, a famed pickup/coupe hybrid that was last produced in 1987.

This affection for the El Camino is translated through the branded accents on the cool blue suede upper. Tongue tags and insoles alike swap out standard Nike SB hits for muscle car-esque GT block text and racing stripes in white, both of which are surrounded by Taylor’s name and a Nike SB spellout in retro car font.

Apart from the blue upper and special branding, the rest of the upper is composed of a royal blue heel tab with a white Nike hit, a chilly ice blue Swoosh and two blue lace options. Down below, white midsoles loaded with Zoom Air cushioning in the heel sit atop gum outsoles to round off the look.

You can grab a pair of these blue SB Blazer Low GTs on the Nike webstore or retailers like The Berrics’ Canteen now. The MSRP is set at $80 USD.
