Nike follows up their collaborative Tennis Classic SP, with another design done in cahoots with Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design. This time around, the two combine a number of the athletic giant’s most recognizable silhouettes in order to create an entirely new sneaker. A textured Cortez-like upper and leather Swoosh lend the Roshe LTD 1000 a sense of luxury, while the tongue features an unfinished effect with a layer of exposed foam. The toe box, meanwhile, bares more than a passing resemblance to both the Nike Cortez and fashion’s celebrated reappropriation of the German army trainer. All of this sits atop a clean, technical version of Nike’s Roshe NM (Natural Motion) sole for what may become a sleeper hit of 2014.
Look for the clean technical sneakers to release on October 23 at select Nike retailers and Nike.com.
