why not just get APC x Nike? they're lowtops (dunno whether you're down with that), look less like basketball shoes, realistically are just as good for shitkicking, and are generally more attractive. More expensive and the lowtops are a deal breaker. And aren't they canvas? I'd prefer leather. I'm transitioning the vast majority of my footwear into ankle height, just fits with my aesthetic better (tapered hem and all). EDIT: I guess the main thing with the Nike Blazers is how slim (or clunky) of a profile they are.
