Nike Blazer high-top shoes evoke a retro athletic look. They can be worn by both men and women and look fantastic with a casual pair of jeans and a blazer. Simple and traditional criss cross lacing techniques will create the ideal fashion affect when tying up this chic and casual style of sneaker.
Feed the shoe lace through the bottom two eyelets of the Nike Blazer shoe, leaving two even ends coming out of the front of the eyelets.

- Feed the shoe lace through the bottom two eyelets of the Nike Blazer shoe, leaving two even ends coming out of the front of the eyelets.
Feed the first side of the shoe lace under and up through the next eyelet on the opposite side of the shoe so that it feeds out at the top of the eyelet. Repeat this step with the other side of the shoe lace, once again feeding the lace into the opposite eyelet.
Repeat Step 2 until the laces reach the top of the Nike Blazer high shoes.
Tie the laces in a bow at the top of the shoe to create the classic look. For a more modern look, tuck the two shoe lace ends under the tongue of the shoe and tie in a bow behind the tongue to conceal the extra lace. This style of tying up Nike Blazer high-tops has been worn by the likes of Jaz-Z and Bobby Brown.
- Nike Blazer high shoes can also be bar laced. Rather than lacing the shoe laces at a diagonal each lace will go into the eyelet directly across from the original eyelet. This technique gives the shoe a straight across lacing look.
