There was a period in my life where I thought all sneakers I owned needed to be unique in some way. If suede was not commonly used, I needed to have it. A gingham print in a high top? It’s mine. It didn’t matter if it matched with the other pieces in my closets. In some ways, that wasn’t even the point. However, as I’ve gotten older and expanded upon my collection, we opt for simple. These days, nearly everything I own is monochrome, but that doesn’t automatically make your sneakers boring.
This latest Blazer Mid ’77 silhouette is various shades of grey and print. It is anything, but simple. The clean swoosh along with the patchwork print and subtle corduroy bring texture to this shoe. In my opinion, it’s quite a sophisticated piece and naturally, we need this too. While we’ve been given a preview now, there is no official release date yet, but we should expect more news on it in the coming months.
