The READYMADE take on the Nike Blazer Mid brings with it many different aspects, bringing the very much on trend deconstructed, DIY approach to its aesthetic whilst also hitting us with slight hints of nostalgia by looking back to Nikes history and design of their earliest basketball shoe.
Building on READYMADE’s design ethos and their upcycling philosophy, the rubber outsole is made with about 15 percent Nike Grind, a mix of recycled materials originating from Nike manufacturing scrap and worn-out sneakers that would have otherwise entered the waste stream.
This detail also lend themselves to the midsole and the splotched foam beneath that reminds us of Nike’s recent Space Hippie range however, the midsole has actually been developed using clay molds that were altered during a few trials to balance the shoe’s side profile, bringing a sense of volume to the design.
Aside from those more subtle details, the most stand out feature has to be the thinner, longer, half-stitched Swoosh that’s been pulled straight from the logo’s 1971 version.
