Clean, classic and versatile, Nike‘s Blazer Low is an apt warm weather footwear choice. In summer 2021 it’s doing its best impersonation of another popular Nike Sportswear lifestyle model, the Killshot 2, by replicating its well-known navy and cream colorway. A onetime tennis sneaker that has become a go-to for the urban finance bro in years past — and is often paired with J. Crew chinos and a Patagonia fleece vest or jacket — the Killshot 2’s preppy style is playfully replicated by this low-cut Blazer, making for a tongue-in cheek homage to a “cult” favorite.

Uppers are constructed of a cream leather that’s overlaid with shaggy gray suede on the forefoot and toebox. Swooshes, heels and tongue badges all offer pops of navy for contrast. Though all this is nearly identical in nature to the bro-tacular Killshot 2, the Blazer adds in a touch of sporty flair with its signature exposed foam tongue. Down below, the homage is completed by a full gum midsole.

Officially dubbed “Sail/Gum Light Brown/Summit White/Midnight Navy,” this Killshot 2-inspired Blazer Low is available on the Nike webstore now and is priced at a palatable $85 USD.
