CPFM x Nike Blazer Sponge By You

by Henrik Buzzi


The Nike Blazer Cactus Plant Flea Market Sponge By You begins with Nike's iconic 1972 basketball shoe. The project filters the shoe through its contemporary skate heritage with deconstructed edges, an ode to the DIY customization of skate footwear and a patchwork of fabrics: loose knit, quilted, fleece and synthetic suede. The general vibe channels the type of patchwork or crocheted blankets one might find at a flea market. Other elements of the Nike Blazer CPFM Sponge By You are, naturally, up to you.

On the multi-textured tan base color, selections for the eye-stay, lace and Swoosh can be made independently on the right and left shoes. This means one could stay the course and keep both the same, or identify a different personality for each. Either way, CPFM's unique upper articulation grants a subtle asymmetry. The Nike Blazer CPFM Sponge By You launches on the Nike by You builder August 27.
