In another no-frills model of Nike sneakers, here are KittyKat's Womens Nike Blazer Mids. They are similar to the Nike Dunks that KittyKat already has, but are different in the materials used, and the cut of the sneaker. There is no Air, excessive cushioning, Flywire, or carbon fiber in the shoe. Bear in mind, these are an cheaply made shoe, and come with an inexpensive price tag.
Nike appear to be only coming out with only a few new flagship models, including the Air Jordan 2011, the Lebron VIIIs, the Kobe VIs, and other various sneakers - but it appears that they have a huge market in retro shoes. From memory, shoes like the Nike Dunks and the Nike Blazers were the original shoes that came out in the late 70s. It appeared that even the Air Jordan I was an extension of the Nike Dunks - but possibly with some Air in the sole. Every year, they appear to come out with retro models of Air Jordans, as well as some other shoes. The ones I have seen recently are:
Reebok have retro'ed The Pump, and I am sure it is not their only re-release. Adidas have re-released the Crazy 8 - a shoe worn by Kobe when he initially started playing in the NBA, before he signed up with Nike.
I cannot offer any experiences on the feel or comfort of the Nike Blazer, but KittyKat did make a comment that she found them very comfortable and would have liked to have purchased more pairs to have in reserve. Saying that, here are the images:
These shoes were purchased (at a price lower than retail) at the Nike Factory Outlet, on Smith Street, Collingwood. I believe there are more available, but am unsure of the quantities at the time of writing.
