In March 2016, HTM celebrates Air Max, adding new dimension to the elusive collaborative line. For the first time, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker have each created a model that reflects their respective contributions to the longstanding partnership.
Tinker Hatfield’s Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Superfly T is a whole new take on the iconic Air Max 90 taking elements of the Mercurial Superfly with a collar on the ankle and flyknit material used on the upper the use of change on the classic is sillouette gives it a breath of new while adding functionality to the shoe.
Flyknit in the collar and toe deliver a one-to-one fit. Leather in the tongue and heel add an element of luxury to the 90. The skin overalay on the qaurter panel provides added durability.
Hiroshi Fujiwara brings Fragment design to the Nike Air Max LD-Zero H, which incorporates Air Max technology onto Fujiwara’s famed LD-1000 model.
Taking elements from the Fragment LD-1000 and adding a full Air Max unit and marrying all these together make for an extraordinary sleek yet functional Air Max. Hiroshi Fujiwara wanted to create something that would resonate with people who are interested in classic styles.
Fujiwara went searching through the Nike archives. On a recent visit, He 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
