The Blazer is Nike's original basketball shoe from the '70s. A few years back, Nike SB took the Blazer off the shelf and found out the shoe could actually skate - very well in fact. The Blazer Low is the same shoe you've been skating for years, just with a shorter collar for a natural fit and comfort around the ankle.
The classic vulcanized sole provides responsive control. A Zoom insole ensures impact protection without limiting board feel. Tongue centering bands keep the tongue in place for comfort and support.

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.
Herringbone Tread - The herringbone pattern is frequently used in basketball shoes for its ability to provide optimal traction on smooth surfaces.
Elastic Gusseted Tongue - Lets you wear the shoe like a slip-on when laces are removed.
Zoom Air Unit in Sockliner - Nike Zoom cushioning is incredibly thin and brings 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 unit quickly bounce back into shape, providing a super-responsive feel and improved awareness of the surface you’re on.
