Key Features: The Blazer Low features a two-tone blue upper, complemented by a cloud-shaped white Swoosh and three black Velcro straps replacing the laces. “Nike KB” and “Kevin Bradley” branding is implemented on the tongue, while the heel is decorated with a raindrop to reference Bradley’s affinity for rainy days. The Blazer Mid is dressed in red velour, with a black Swoosh providing contrast alongside matching the tongue, midsole, and laces accordingly. A sunburst motif then adorns the heel.

Editor’s Notes: Nike SB has teamed up with pro skater Kevin Bradley to launch the “Kevin & Hell” Blazer pack. The capsule consists of two takes on the Blazer silhouette, one low-top and one mid, drawing from a theme of good versus evil.
The Blazer Low garners attention due to its Velcro straps in place of laces, while the Blazer Mid is done up in red velour as a nod to Bradley’s favorite Star Wars character, Darth Maul.
“I like the Velcro straps,” said Bradley. “Sometimes I’m really lazy and I don’t like to tie my shoes. Sometimes I don’t even strap the Velcro. You gotta be comfy.”
