Released in 1972, the Nike Blazer was one of the first basketball sneakers Nike ever created. They were designed to compete with Converse and Adidas sneakers that were dominating the court. This limited "NYC vs. LA" version features two different colorways. The right shoe has a LA Lakers-inspired purple and gold accents, and the right shoe has a NY Knicks-inspred orange and blue accents. They also have their cities reflected in the heel and footbed.
