The solid-red-shoe trend continues for the Swoosh next month, with the third colorway (after black and blue editions) of a certain geometrically-remixed icon. The Nike Blazer Mid Metric University Red releases Thursday, March 12.
A classic reinvented, the Blazer Mid Metric sees the usual leather or suede swapped out on the upper, replaced instead with a molded TPU construction that manifests in a triangular pattern. The look is sleek and striking, yet at times subtle thanks to the Swooshless build.
Leather does still work the accents, appearing on the eyestay, heel and forefoot to add a bit of material complement, and the whole shoe is dipped in monochromatic red from the top down, promising an eye-popping look that’s driven by aesthetics rather than athletics.
