A COURT CLASSIC WITH WORKWEAR VIBES. We took the classic styling of the Nike SB BLZR Court Mid Premium and gave it a workwear twist. It still has the same, lightweight, flexible feel as the original but we added a paisley print to the lining and chain-stitched "Nike" onto the heel. The result is a sleek, skate-ready silhouette with an understated, slightly rugged vibe. A mid-cut collar, clean design and materials like canvas and synthetic leather create a classic look inspired by OG court sports like basketball and tennis. The ollie zone is reinforced with a patch for extra durability in this high-wear area. Vulcanized construction fuses the outsole to the upper for increased flexibility. The rubber has been thinned out in key areas so it feels lightweight and ready to skate right out of the box.
- Decreased Rubber in Outsole
- Herringbone Tread
- Zoom Air Units in Insole
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
Decreased Rubber in Outsole - Less rubber means less weight, and this outsole also happens to feature a skate specific tread pattern for more flexibility and traction.
Herringbone Tread - The herringbone pattern is frequently used in basketball shoes for its ability to provide optimal traction on smooth surfaces.
Zoom Air Units in Insole - Independent Nike Zoom Air units provide incredibly thin cushioning and bring the foot closer to the ground for enhanced stability, especially during quick cuts and multi-directional movements.
After impact, the tightly stretched fibers inside the pressurized air units quickly bounce back into shape, providing a responsive feel and improved awareness of the surface you’re on.
