Oh, you thought Di’orr Greenwood solely had Dunks to supply? Me too, that’s till a brand new Nike sneaker by the Diné skater entered the chat. Because the outdated saying goes, the extra the merrier, particularly when additional sneakers are concerned.
Following the reveal of Greenwood’s vibrant Dunks, Greenwood and Nike go mute with their subsequent shoe, which occurs to be a severely stealthy Blazer Professional.
Greenwood’s Blazer sneakers are the whole reverse of her daring Dunks, color-wise. The collaborative Blazers arrives in an all-black outfit, dressing almost all the shoe from the within out (the outsole is off-white, although).
Like her Dunks, Greenwood’s blazers provide spectacular nods to her indigenous roots, right down to the “Diné” changing the normal Nike branding on the heel. Good.
Textured designs dance across the shoe’s midsole, whereas Greenwood’s Blazers receives a cool-looking enclosed lace system, stamped with a floral motif on the base.
Greenwood’s Nike SB Blazer sneakers boast a matte higher, which appears to be like deconstructed in a means. It is unknown whether or not this element is intentional or a part of the ultimate product, but it surely provides some edge to the shoe. I prefer it.
Di’orr Greenwood selected a slept-on Nike shoe and woke it up with a trendy colorway and inventive particulars. Like her Dunks, the Blazer Professional sneakers have obtained divisive reactions, from hearth emojis (a superb factor) to “these are exhausting…to have a look at” feedback. I am on the previous workforce. They’re cool.
Prefer it or not, Di’orr Greenwood’s Nike SB collaborations are coming (hopefully). Greenwood nor Nike have confirmed launch particulars for her Dunks or Blazer Execs but, however I believe each sneakers will lastly launch within the new yr.
Greewood’s Dunks aren’t even out, and one other shoe is already making rounds. I ponder if three would be the attraction with a 3rd shoe. Hmm.
