The design of these Blazer Chukkas is inspired by the iconic wheat boots worn by NBA players before the league's dress code took effect in 2005. They may be designed to look like work boots, but they definitely don't skate like them! A rubber toe cap bolsters the durable upper, and the herringbone outsole provides lasting grip. The midsole is geometrically designed to disperse impact across the entire foot, reducing impact on any single point of the foot. Triple stitching on each seam, and thick two-toned laces is the finishing touch to give it that work boot look.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support 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.
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.
Perforations at Side - The perforations on the side of the shoe allows moisture and heat to escape providing a more comfortable wearing experience.
