Japanese streetwear brand FPAR is back with their latest provocative collaboration with Nike. Standing for "Forty Percent Against Rights", FPAR believes that once a work is altered beyond 40 percent, the rights to that work don't exist any more. Reflecting FPAR's love for skating and their belief that skateboarding and a guerrilla ethos against media can change the world, they've chosen to add their alterations to the classic SB Blazer Low.
An all-over Cool Grey and Wolf Grey makeup extends to the smooth suede upper, tumbled leather Swoosh and FPAR-branded heel tab, and exotic pattern placement. All in all, FPAR's produced a special Blazer Low with unexpected details that still strike an understated tone thanks to its muted colours.
- Nike SB x FPAR
- Herringbone Tread
- Zoom Air Unit in Sockliner
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.
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.
