We just gave you a look into the three masterminds behind the HTM collaborations from Nike the other day, and they’re back with something new. With Air Max Day approaching, the trio of Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield, and Mark Parker bring us a special HTM Air Max sneaker.
As stated in the interview with the three HTM designers, each HTM collaboration usually has more of an inspiration or influence from a certain designer. With the latest HTM collaboration, Fragement Design founder Hiroshi Fujiawara takes the lead with the silhouette of the Nike Air Max LD-Zero H.
Check out the official info from Nike down below, and let us know if you’re going to try and grab the latest HTM collaboration tomorrow or on Air Max Day.
In March 2016, HTM celebrates Air Max, adding new dimension to the elusive collaborative line. For the first time, Hiroshi Fujiwara has crafted a model that reflects his contribution to the longstanding partnership. Here, the designer breaks down the Nike Air Max LD-Zero H.
On mining the archives… I wanted to create something that would resonate with people who are interested in classic styles.
On bringing the past to the present… I love searching through the Nike archives. On a recent visit, I happened to come across the Nike Boston, which was a predecessor to the LD-1000. I thought it would be really interesting to combine that silhouette with the latest technologies available today. Performance technologies are amazing to work with, so I paired the Boston upper with the Air Max 2014 platform
On the aesthetic… I experimented quite a bit with materials before landing on nylon and suede. Those materials, along with the blue color, give the shoe a classic aesthetic.
The nylon upper connects back to the original Nike Boston.
The Nike Air Max 2014 platform delivers lightweight, flexible cushioning.
The suede heel and leather backtab lends to a luxurious finish.
Nike Flywire technology provides an adaptive and supportive fit.
