Dick’s Sporting Goods’ major clearance sale ends tomorrow, but there’s still plenty of time to take advantage of the huge savings on running, training, and golf shoes from brands like Brooks, The North Face, Hoka, and more. Nike shoes are also among the best deals at Dick’s right now, including one of the best retro sneakers for men that’s virtually trend-proof.

Typically $105, the Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage leather high-top sneakers are on sale for as little as $62—up to 41% off. The shoes boast over 200 five-star ratings from Dick’s shoppers who say they bring “great vintage style” to any outfit. They’re currently available in sizes 7.5 to 14 and are marked down in three colors. The price depends on the color you select, but the best deal is on the White/Brown.

The Blazer features a leather upper with suede panels and Nike’s bold swoosh logo along the sides. It was originally introduced in the 1970s, and they were named after and worn by Nike’s hometown team, the Portland Trail Blazers. They were later adopted by skaters, further adding to their street cred. Basketball shoe technology has come a long way in terms of performance, but in terms of style, the minimalist and clean looks of the Blazer are rivaled only by the Converse Chuck Taylor. 

The stylish, retro look of the sneakers was a big part of their appeal. One shopper appreciated the “classic, clean shoe,” saying it’s, “Just a solid, all-around shoe that looks great with anything.” Another wrote, “Great looking shoe, classic vintage style with the exposed foam on the tongue. Recommend a half size up from normal and long socks, as the back ankle support will rub into you at first but gets better with wear.”

Despite being primarily a lifestyle shoe, the Nike Blazer’s relatively flat sole makes it a capable gym shoe, according to some reviews. “They are a super universal shoe that goes with everything and are great at the gym,” a shopper noted. Similarly, another said, “The shoe works great for my workouts. I had my last pair for years.”

While you’re unlikely to see the Nike Blazer at your next pickup game, it’s undisputedly an iconic basketball shoe that works well with casual looks and can even be worn to the gym. At their sub-$65 price, these leather high-tops are less expensive than many others like it, so act fast while sizes are still in stock.
