Giving up its soul to the ‘Grim Reaper’, Nike’s Blazer Mid feels the force of Virgil Abloh in The Ten’s fall-ready ‘Spooky’ pack.
A Halloween-worthy release, the Blazer’s deathly disguise claims its name from the Grim Reaper, with primarily black uppers and a full-moon-white Swoosh stepping into the dark side. A hair-raising release with all the marks of the cult designer, the medial text and side Swoosh scream Virgil Abloh. Arriving with a rarely-seen blue zip tie, both sets of lacing feature the ironic “SHOELACES” quotations. Under the spell of the streetwear supremo? Beware of the Blazer Mid ‘Grim Reaper’.
