The independent Aussie skate label has seen ever increasing popularity over the last year or so, with its unique designs, considered apparel releases and a tight knit group of riders from across the world. Teaming up with the Portland based giants for the first time, Pass~Port have chosen the classic Blazer Hi as the subject of the release, deconstructing the silhouette for a subtle yet functional finish.
The charcoal grey rework focuses on developing the shoes skate-ability, with the upper arriving in a durable waxed cotton canvas. To reduce the bulkiness of the original SB Blazer silhouette, the padding around the ankle collar and tongue has been reduced for more of a slimline look, also allowing for more movement around the ankle. The shoes black textured sole unit features enhanced cushioning through Nike’s Zoom Air technology, which is concealed within, and is finished with a grippy gum outsole. Additional features include embroidered branding in the black swoosh on the mid panel, embroidered Pass~Port branded heel tabs and finished with the collabs ‘worker’ theme graphic on the insole. To accompany the Blazer Hi, the collection also features a dual branded long sleeve polo shirt and Josh Pall deck, as well as a free Nike SB X Pass~Port collectable book featuring photography by Jason Morey, which comes free with every pair of shoes.
To celebrate the pairs collaborative effort, Nike SB and Pass~Port have put together a short edit to introduce Australian rider Josh Paul for his pro debut, which you can watch in full below. The Pass~Port x Nike SB collaboration is available now at select stores including Flatspot, Note and Welcome .
