Nike Blazer Mid Pay Homage To Chicago Legend Dorothy Gaters

Nike Blazer Mid

With All-Star making headway in Chicago, Nike didn’t want to stick to the overt with its references, diving deep into the sports culture of the Windy City itself.

First, they dressed up Air Force 1s to celebrate the diversity of each individual neighborhood while turning the hybridized Don C collaboration into a deconstructed reference to the blue and red flag; with their women’s Blazer Mid, however, the imprint opted to task themselves with honoring local heroes, namely the legendary Dorothy Gaters who has made her name known as the Matriarch of Marshall High School.
