Nike Blazer?

Nike Sweet?

Looks a lot like a mid-80s Nike Air Force 1 or so:

As you can see, there have been several iterations of the design.

Definitely Blazers.

Another vote for Blazer.

Actually, upon second glance the Blazer has a fatter swoosh. Pretty close though.

Ah, now I'm looking at cosmic osmo's pic - maybe these are really old Blazers. I stand by my original vote.

Sorry, Nike enthusiast - I'll stop.

I emailed my Nike enthusiast buddy:

"definitely blazers. i have several versions."

Absolutely the Blazer. However, I can see three design differences between the shoes in your picture and the Blazers currently being produced: The swoosh is a little thinner and less curvy, the wordmark on the collar is Nike's "Futura" logo (ruling out the model linked by cosmic osmo), and the "pull tabs" on the back aren't on any of the current Blazers -- in fact, after some furious Googling, I can't find any Blazers at all that have them.

If you want something similar, then Blazers can be found just about anywhere*. If you want those exact shoes then you're probably out of luck.

*Finding a pair with such a simple colorway in your size, however. . .

Response by poster: Thanks everyone. Nike Blazer it is... the subject in my photo is probably wearing a vintage / old-school version of the Nike Blazer.
