Nike Blazer Release Dates
Nike released the Blazer, the up-and-coming footwear company’s first basketball shoe, in 1973. Somehow, Nike convinced NBA legend George “Iceman” Gervin to debut the new kicks on court and he loved them. The Blazer was intended to compete with adidas and Converse products so the silhouette featured, then-standard, rubber soles and was released in high-top and low-top form. The Nike Blazer has transitioned off of the basketball court and into skateboard and street culture.
