Introducing the Cassette Playa x Nike Blazer.
Nikes design team has combined with UK-based creative icon Carri Mundane to give the iconic Blazer a Cassette Playa-style remastering.
Being Nike's first hoop shoe, the Blazer has recently been embraced by other cultures including skaters a point not lost in Carris creative process. The Blazers adoption within the skate community made this the perfect shoe for the project. The colors reference the faded neons of 80's skate culture. For the materials imagine the shoes came from a toxically mutated lizard = sci-fi pimp. Weve left only a circle and triangle for the wearer to decode.
The Cassette Playa Blazer was first created for Carris Spring/Summer 2008 Future Primitive runway show, a show that was inspired by Carris concept of urban shamanism. As Carri explains it, urban shamanism a way of thinking that is summarized in her unique style for the season Ancient Amazonian hunting rituals adapted by a gang of skaters in a post apocalyptic city.
