In the new year, it seems that Nike has renewed its focus on the classic Blazer model. Giving it proper attention means that Nike is set to released a Mid 77 Vintage version of the mode, in a “Lucid Green and Sail White” colorway. The sneaker attempts to re-capture the details of the original, down to the tongue and midsole. The grey suede really adds something to an otherwise clean color way. It’s nice to see that Nike is starting the year out with a focus on both their archives as well as new sneakers.

The aforementioned sneaker will hit the shelves of select Nike retailers including SJS at a retail of $100.
