Originally introduced as a fragment-branded HTM silhouette back in March for Air Max Day, the Hiroshi Fujiwara-designed Air Max LD-Zero H — a unique hybrid coupling a retro LD-1000-inspired upper with modern tech like 360-degree Max Air cushioning — has returned twice now, popping up in grey back in September before surfacing in a “Triple Black” motif. Now the kicks are getting an introduction as a part of Nike Sportswear’s own in-house line-up.
Ditching the “H” designation and simply dubbed the Air Max LD-Zero, the new release notably appears sans fragment branding and instead opts for a retro tongue badge and corresponding heel insignia — appropriate given the upper’s old school roots. The construction itself also gets a bit of an upgrade as leather-lined suede handles the entirety of the upper. Finally, a full translucent 360-degree Max Air unit — as opposed to the smoky one that hit the aforementioned “Triple Black” release — provides the cushioning.
Though a concrete release date is currently unknown, the fragment-free rendition of the Air Max LD-Zero should be available soon at NSW spots worldwide.
