After over 30 years in the game, the Nike Blazer, Nike’s first basketball sneaker, is getting a modern day overhaul. The Nike Blazer, the Basketball sneaker that started it all for Nike and was positioned as the “Chuck Killer”, is stepping out of the 1970s and into the new millennium with an updated and upgraded upper, and most importantly, a “new” outsole taken from the the modern day Basketball marvel, the Nike Huarache 2K4. The Nike Blazer 2K9 retains the overall look and feel of the Nike Blazer with it’s smooth round toe cap and large Swoosh.
The Nike Blazer 2K9 is set to release during the Summer of 2009.
