Doubling up on the tongue.
Nike (NYSE:NKE -1.09%) SB‘s latest Mid Edge Blazer is a meticulous patchwork of contrasting textures and quirky deconstruction. Arriving in a dark “Team Red” update, the new rendition follows equally crafty “Oracle Aqua” and “Obsidian Mist” colorways seen back in May.
The forthcoming sneaker features “Nike SB” tags over a double-tongue construction — light teal foam on the upper tongue and brown mesh on the lower. Most of the shoe’s uppers come in dark wine-colored full-grain leather, complemented by navy side-Swooshes imagined in suede and tiny fringes, while “NIKE” branding is embroidered at the heel counter. At the lateral forefoot is a light beige suede panel that hangs slightly over an extra patch at the toecap cut in the shape of a Swoosh. All of these details rest over a crisp white midsole to round off the shoe’s intricate design.
Though no official release dates have been confirmed, Nike’s SB Blazer Mid Edge “Team Red” is slated to arrive early next year on Nike’s website for $95 USD.
