The Fourth Collaboration With Nike

Denham just released their fourth exciting collaboration with Nike. This time they gave the legendary Blazer model a unique denim and indigo twist. The Blazer model, originally a basketball shoe, was Jason Denham’s (founder of Denham) first-ever Nike, so with this collaboration, his dream came true.

East Meets West

‘East meets West’ into the famous 1973 model from Nike, the Blazer. In the collaboration, the clean design of the sneaker got a make over with a Japanese twist. The softest kind of leather is mixed with a premium indigo kimono fabric, denim, and nubuck suede. The DNA and worlds of both brands are coming together in one sneaker.

The Details

Zooming in on the details of the sneaker you will see that the upper part of this iconic silhouette is crafted from buttery soft, high-quality white leather, similar to the original. They used natural tanned nubuck on the heel, and grey suede for the trimmings. The authentic Swoosh from Nike is made in a Sashiko style indigo kimono fabric. This typical authentic Japanese repair technique, known as Boro, is a strong homage to the Asian roots which can also be seen in the Denham brand.

Furthermore, they used infra-red enamel eyelets, sustainable bamboo lace tips, engraved with their recognizable scissor logo, and the emblematic swoosh. The collab sneaker has an infra-red air sole, scissor-printed insole in red and gold.
