Sneakers
From the ground up

Having earned the reputation as being one of the modern fashion industry’s defining figures, the head of fragment design, Hiroshi Fujiwara, recently stepped out on stage in a pair of never-before-seen Nike Air Force 1 sneakers.

As has become apparent over recent weeks, a plethora of notable designers and figures alike have lent their hands to redesigning the infamous Air Force 1 silhouette. From Public School to John Elliot, it would come as little to no surprise if Hiroshi Fujiwara was the next in line, as he already presides over a kingdom of hugely successful Nike collaborations from years past.

As the speaker at a Nike event in Beijing, Fujiwara was seen in a pair of mid-top Air Force 1s, finished off with a full-Velcro lacing column, perforated brand detailing, and fragment design’s signature text highlights subtly accenting the outsole. And as one post even bore the caption, “AF1 35th,” we can safely speculate where this is all leading.
