Renowned designer John Elliott debuted a new women’s-only Nike Blazer during his New York Fashion Week show Sept. 6 at Pier 62 Skatepark. And this week, the fresh style hits stores.
The Nike Blazer Rebel, a silhouette made specifically for female sneaker fanatics, arrives first via Johnelliott.co in “Blackened Blue” on Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET. The colorway sold on Elliott’s online store was the one featured during the presentation.
A broader release of the sneaker, in the “Blackened Blue” iteration as well as three others hues, is scheduled for Saturday. All four colorways will be sold on Nike.com and Johnelliott.co. The sneakers will come with a $100 price tag.
The medial zipper entry and asymmetrical lacing are highlights of the sneaker, along with its exposed foam tongue and new midsole. The kicks boast suede uppers with contrasting tongue color, different shades of Swoosh branding on the lateral and medial sides and Nike branding in the form of a removable pin.
