Nike Blazer Mid Jumbo Is One of the Swoosh's Wackiest Silhouette To-Date

The model bears fatter Swooshes, sock-like collars and herringbone-patterned treading.

Perhaps because the Blazer Mid is such a clean and timeless silhouette, there’s plenty of room for Nike and/or collaborative partners to reimagine it in fresh ways. We’ve seen this happen with Virgil Abloh who reworked the silhouette with a deconstructed aesthetic as well as READYMADE who reinterpreted the model with thinner Swooshes, digi-camo collars and foam-like midsoles. And now the Nike Blazer Mid Jumbo — a new inline remix of the retro Sportswear model — has been introduced, and it’s arguably one of the wackiest propositions we’ve seen.

Like the originals, smooth leathers still make up a majority of the base layer’s constructions, and in this instance they are dripped in a solid black. However, there’s major changes made here such as the Swooshes which have been blown up in size and as a result bleed onto the midsoles, as well as the collars which have been altered to a sock-like material. Tongues still keep their foam-infused material, but come paired next to a tab that runs down the middle of the throat. Zero modifications are made to the midsoles, but the treading has been slightly beefed up and is presented with a heftier herringbone pattern.

A release date for these is still unknown, but you can likely anticipate Nike to launch these in the coming months.

In case you missed it, Nike’s OverBreak SP recently dropped in a clean “Black and White” colorway.
