Nike to Celebrate this year's Air Max Day with the release of Air Max LD-Zero H

On Saturday 26 March, Nike celebrates the third edition of Air Max day. It’s an annual hat tip to arguably the most seminal development in sneaker history, the Tinker Hatfield-penned design that introduced visible air.

 To mark this year’s Air Max day, Nike has tapped up Hiroshi Fujiwara –
 the H in its design dream team, HTM – to craft a brand new take on the Air Max. He came up with the LD-Zero H, a fusion of the old-school Nike Boston – a 1970s OG runner – and the Air Max 2014 sole. Founder of famed design house Fragment, Hiroshi Fujiwara is one of the most influential streetwear designers today.

As part of the elite Nike HTM design team formed in 2002, Fujiwara has collaborated with Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker to amplify new innovations, reinterpret existing designs and explore concepts that take the Nike brand to new places.
I wanted to create something that would resonate with people who are interested in classic styles. 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.”
