To celebrate Air Max Day this Saturday 26th we will have all 3 releases from the H-T-M series.
AIR MAX LD-ZERO H Even before he began collaborating with Nike, the Nike LD1000 was one of Hiroshi’s Fujiwara’s favorite sneakers, 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 Nike Air unit, for added sophistication.
AIR MAX 90 ULTRA SUPERFLY T With a background in architecture, Tinker Hatfield has an eye for combining inspiration from seemingly discordant places to create sneakers that look and feel of the future. In this case, he mixed the world’s most popular Air Max with Nike’s fastest football boot. Then he cored out the midsole with Ultra technology, making the whole proposition incredibly light and modern. Top it all off with classic palette, and you’ve got an icon in the making.
AIR MAX ULTRA M Mark Parker is the visionary behind Nike’s most groundbreaking innovations. For his first signature Sportswear shoe, he mixed the latest materials and technology with the perfect frame for fresh innovation: the Air Max BW. A newlyengineered knit jacquard brings richness and depth to his vibrant color palette and makes the fade all the more fine. A cored-out Ultra midsole gives this sneaker the modern, ultralight feel Nike is famous for.
