Nike has long been a supporter of gaming. Just look at their long list of collaborations over the years: PlayStation PG 2s and PG 2.5s, Nintendo 64 Air Max 97s, the list goes on (go away, Zara). This year, the American footwear giant has done it again with a new retro-inspired silhouette.
First revealed by @solebyjc on Instagram, the Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage “Have a Good Game” is a loud and proud hurrah to gaming geeks. Sporting a clean White/White/Bright Crimson/Black colourway, these sneakers’ most striking feature is no doubt the pixelated Nike swoosh streaking across the upper.
The midsole itself is a loud multi-coloured gradient which screams RGB as the perfect nod to gamers who like flashy setups. At the outer heel counter is the phrase “Have a Good Game”. The heel tab bears a pair of removable velcro patches, with one side being the Nike logo, and the other being the classic “Have a Nike Day” logo donning a gaming headset.
Arguably the most geeky aspect of these Blazer Mid ’77s is that it glows in the dark to reveal the Nike logo printed all across the upper.
The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage “Have a Good Game” launches sometime in Fall 2020.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
