So I work in a skate shop and we have a few different Blazers in at the moment, Chucka XT, GT, Low, Low XT, Hi. I've just had a good inspection of them all and the main difference I noticed was that the Chucka seems to be the only one that actually uses a noticeably different compound of rubber..
When you a run a finger along the tread lines, they feel much harder than the other Blazers, in which case they might not be so grippy out the box but they should last longer.
They all seem to differ a little between models in terms of the spacing/sizing of the tread lines.

Also, I don't know why they're using Ishod to promote two different models, like someone just said, he just came out with the mismatch Dunks so why not use one of their other many pros to promote the shoe?
 

Lance had the first colorway of the Chukka, but not with tons of branding. I love the way his low (I guess decon) fits

but its canvas, right?

When does the Gato drop?
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

The (new) SB Team classic.

Can someone please confirm what kind of sole this has?

It says vulc on some retailers but doesn't look like it to me....

What Finland said. The Team Classic is a cupsole. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on a pair thanks to the answers and feedback I got on the last page and I love them so far. They are considered a "price point" shoe but they don't feel like a price point at all. Fit is slim to the foot, snug, excellent heel lock. If vanity is your thing, they look great with jeans or chinos. I can't comment on durability because I just got them and only have a few hours on them. I will be skating the hell out of them this weekend.

Thanks for the feedback.

Although vanity is a thing yes, it's more so how the sole type is with my skating.

Much more in tune with vulc and notice big differences when switching between the two.

They look great and especially with that price point so enjoy em.

I switch back and forth between vulc and thin cupsoles and I like both, but am usually a vulc guy.

I tried on the Team Classics the other day and they're hella thin with the classic square edge of a vulc. Definitely feel more like a vulc to me than a cup. Not arguing that they are vulc, just saying if you only skate vulcs, you probably will still like the Team Classic.

why hasn't NIKE SB made a skate version of the air max 1?

Tons of kids used to skatethose all leather (no mesh) in the 90's, and they honestly were great.
Not too different from the bulk DC's en ťS from that era either.

I think a slimmed version of those would sell like crazy...

I skate 95's from time to time. Mostly flat and ledges. I got use to them in the first session. Even after skating vulcs for over decade. Reminded me when I first started skating with Templeton 1s or other tech shoes.

What would you consider a fair price to pay for a pair of nyjahs? I've been eyeing them for a little bit and if I find the right colorway I might pull the trigger but not for full price.. Any chance to find them somewhere for a like 50 bucks? Any of you experience with them?

I saw the first two colorways at the outlet for $40

im curious how those Nyjah shoes are selling. I haven't seen a single pair in person. It's too hot here to wear a rubber shoe though, so maybe thats the reason.

Part of me wants to try them, part of me doesnít want to wear a shoe that says ďNyjah.Ē

Also, I think almost all places are too hot for a rubber shoe.

I saw somebody wearing them in person at my local park and over the time he had them they didn't look anymore durable than a different shoe. He blew through them probably as fast as any other shoe

Not AM1 but these 90ís inspiration are on these kostonís.

Nike hasnít and I donít think will make an actual skate version of any AM 1/90. Janoksi Max and Bruin Vapor donít count.
