NIKE SB x LANCE MOUNTAIN BLAZER ELITE
Lance Mountain has teamed up again with Nike SB to create the "Pool Service" Blazer Elite. In stark contrast to the last brightly colored collaboration we saw from Nike and Lance, this Blazer features a more dulled down "Charcoal" color that I would rather refer to as a dirty navy, something one might expect to see on the wax crusted rim of an abandoned pool. This shoe screams premium details with a supremely soft high grade leather upper, Golden Hopps contrast stitching from top to bottom, gold metal eyelets, paisely-esque pool pattern insole and a suede swoosh.
Lance's Blazer plays on some colors and themes that throw us back to a day when skating rails was only relative to skating over them in the deep end, a time when skating a spot meant getting your buckets, brooms and few homies to go clean out the murky mystery sludge that lay at the bottom of a spot that you had to work to make happen. Pool Service is more than just a cash paying job for the topless speedo wearing numb skull, it's a past time of putting in work to get payment in skateable space, and Lance is a scholar in that department.
