Finishing the year on a high note Nike SB have collaborated with Japanese streetwear brand FPAR, resulting in the Nike SB Blazer Low x FPAR shoe. The clean and edgy reworking of this classic SB silhouette has been masterminded by Tetsu Nishiyama (a.k.a TET) the man behind FPAR, which is an acronim for Forty Percent Against Rights. A reference to his belief that once a piece or design has been altered more than forty percent the rights to the work no longer exist, and this rebelious and maverick energy is what has driven the success of FPAR, not to mention Nishiyama's best known brand WTAPS.
This years collaboration follows on from 2019's Nike SB x FPAR Dunk High shoe which took multiple queues for classic Air Jordan shoes, this time making subtle alterations to Nike's court classic Blazer Low. The shoe is available in two colour options Cool Grey/Wolf Grey and Khaki/Rattan, constructed with a plush smooth suede upper, textured leather swoosh, FPAR branded heel tabs and a snake skin panel on the exterior sidewalls giving this understated classic a beatifully elevated look and feel. The upper sits on a fully vulcanised sole unit with an intergrated Zoom Air unit and custom insole, and signed off with blinged out gold FPAR and Nike lace dubraes.
