Nike Blazer vs Air Force 1 Sizing and Fit Comparison Photos [AF1]


In this article I will directly compare Nike Blazer vs Air Force 1 sizing using photos of the shoes that I own. Do the Nike Blazer and Air Force 1 fit the same?

The Air Force 1 fits bigger than the Nike Blazer. Not only does the Air Force 1 fit a little bit longer than the Nike Blazer, the Air Force 1 has a wider, roomier toe box. This is where you can view a men’s side-by-side photo comparing AF1 sizing to Nike Blazer sizing. This is where you can view a women’s side-by-side photo comparing AF1 sizing to Nike Blazer sizing.

Many people consider the Air Force 1 to run a little bit bigger than their normal shoe sizing. This would mean that the Nike Blazer is closer to what most people consider “true-to-size”. However, the Nike Blazer does fit a bit narrow, so if you have wide feet, it may be best to size up the Nike Blazer.
