Sometimes it feels like the universe is looking out for you. It’s a rare thing, but it happens. Take, for instance, what’s going on over at Mr Porter right now. Amidst the ten-thousand-plus items on sale—it’s a damn jamboree, folks, and it’s time to get shopping!—there sits a sleeper-hit pair of sneakers from Nike that I’m frankly surprised aren’t sold out yet.
The sneakers in question are a pair of Blazer Low ’77s in white, gray, and green. When their mid-top counterpart dropped back in 2019 alongside versions with blue and red accents in the “Vintage Pack,” I missed my shot at a pair. Of course, a couple of the guys I work with managed to score them, so I got to look at them as they worked their way through their respective rotations. It wasn’t a knife to the heart, but it was a thorn in the side. “You don’t even wear high-tops that often,” I told myself to feel better, because 1) I don’t, and 2) I don’t care what Nike says, those mids look like highs.
I digress. Let’s get back to the universe and its occasional magnanimity, because the shoes I’m really here to talk about aren’t the ones I missed but the Blazer Lows that I, and you, and everyone else can buy right now for 30% off, bringing the price to below 60 bucks.
They’re not quite neutral, but will go with pretty much any outfit you can conjure this summer, from big shorts and a camp-collar shirt to slim chinos and a tipped polo. Plus, because they’re low-tops, they’re perfectly suited to the warmer months ahead.
Don’t be like me. Don’t miss your shot. Just go ahead and pick up a pair now and wear ’em clear through till winter. By then, another Mr Porter sale will be just around the corner. And you can bet there’ll be another gem in there that’ll let you start this whole process over again.
