Crafted by famed fragment designer Hiroshi Fujiwara, the Nike Air Max LD-Zero H Unisex Shoe fuses a LD1000 upper with the latest Max Air unit to deliver a modern street-style icon.
ABOUT THE DESIGN
Even before he began collaborating with Nike, one of Hiroshi Fujiwara's favourite sneakers was the Nike LD1000, thanks to its clean, minimal '70s design aesthetic. As a nod to the era, he recreated this version in vintage suede-over-nylon materials, sourced from the archives. Then he covered the entire shoe in his signature obsidian and white palette, but added hits of black, including a blacked-out Max Air unit, for added sophistication.

NIKE AIR MAX ORIGINS
Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in the late '70s. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking colour combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
