The retro silhouette uses canvas and suede uppers, and its monochromatic blue finish is disrupted by off-white accents covered by decorative stitching. Under the feet, the gum rubber outsole has a chevron traction pattern for optimal grip. Sashiko, which literally means “small thorn”, is a decorative reinforcement stitch that originated in Japan about 400 years ago. This Nike SB Blazer Mid product has a navy base and is covered with Sail DIY style plaques with Sashiko-style stitching. The Sail midsole on the gum rubber outsole completes the design.
