There is no denying the fact that the retro styling of the slim vulcanized outsole and cup sole are very popular right now. A trend that started with early Basketball sneakers that included the Chuck Taylor, PF Flyers, the Nike Blazer, etc. the vulc/cup sole has reemerged once again and has taken over the street. On the flip side of that, the retro styling of old high top/bulky 80s/90s Basketball sneakers is also popular once again.
Combining both of these styles, Nike is set to marry the legacy of their first Basketball sneaker, the Nike Blazer, with the uppers from some of their classic 90s Basketball footwear. The products of this marriage are the Nike Air Force 180 x Nike Blazer and the Nike Air Flight Lite High x Nike Blazer. Both styles feature the upper from 180 or Flight Lite sitting on a Nike Blazer sole. As part of the releases from this line up, Nike is set to release the OG Olympic Air Force 180 colorway of the 180 Blazer and several other colorways as well. The Air Flight Lite Blazer is set to drop in a Smoked Grey nubuck colorway.
All of these kix are slated to release late 2009.
