They say that if you “give a girl the right shoes, she’ll conquer the world,” and through the years, the style has changed dramatically. Women have come from kitten heels, go-go boots, sky-high stilettos, and many more to find the perfect pair that suits their style and personality. For today’s generation fashionable females, one of the hottest shoes are sneakers, especially Nike’s Blazer Vintage in suede.

Price when reviewed: $100
The “Blazer” collection from one of the retail industry’s giants has been a mainstay in fashion for quite some time now. The ‘Vintage’ collection, in particular, was released back on April 19, 2014, and has since become a favorite for women everywhere. With only $100 a pair, it wasn’t long before every Nike store in the world sold out their stocks of the much-beloved Blazer Vintage shoes, especially when they came in suede.
The shoe is classic Nike, from the way it’s designed to its signature shape and silhouette. Inspired by the first Blazer shoes that debuted back in the 1970’s, the Blazer Vintage pays homage by exemplifying what made this particular shoe a success all those decades ago. The shoe has since become a favorite among Nike’s female customers, especially since it’s offered in pastel and pale hues that make them less sporty and more stylish. For the classic Nike check, a leather trim makes for an edgier and slightly more sophisticated touch.
Suede, while a classic shoe material, is a tricky one when it comes to footwear. It requires the utmost care and attention when it comes to maintenance and washing. Although suede makes Nike’s Blazer Vintage sneakers that much more covetable, it tends to be problematic at times, more so if the owner will use the pair for athletic activities. Suede is not waterproof, but it’s also not as easy as other shoe materials to wash.
