Constructed of supple black leather with black suede mudguards and toe caps, the shoe’s upper features translucent TPE circles on the toebox, forefoot, midfoot and heel a la the Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5. These ovals can either be left intact or cut out with a razor blade, enabling the wearer to “customize” their shoes as they see fit. There’s also a cordlike green lace snaking across the upper in a manner reminiscent of the Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low, plus a signature black zip tie and Helvetica text branding on the shoelaces. More Helvetica likely appears on the medial midfoot as well, but this cannot be confirmed as only a single image of the shoe is currently available. Exposed foam tongues with co-branded tags round off the top half.
Down below, midsoles start simple on the forefoot — then go wild on the heel. Plain black rubber gives way to a bulky two-piece cushioning system, with an oblong green shape towards the pointed rear and a series of small circular details that are reminiscent of Nike ACG‘s Terra Humara. This piece is bordered by a small hit of blue and gold speckled detailing for a final hit of flair.
At the time of writing, a date of arrival for the Off-White™ x Nike Blazer Low has yet to be revealed. However, it’ll likely release towards the end of 2021.
