Nike Roshe LD-1000 Obsidian

Dropping for fall is another silhouette from Nike that saw an exquisite Fragment Design release and has blown up since. The Roshe was released as a zen inspired, minimal silhouette which has since been updated to see the Roshe Two and now the LD-1000.

The LD-1000 is nigh on a perfect hybrid, the sole unit being that of the Roshe combined with the upper of the ’72 release that is the Cortez. The combination makes for something really exciting which combines tech and the classic aesthetic which made Nike what it is today. This latest drop features an obsidian colourway constructed from a combination of soft fabric and leather accents. The swoosh draws on Nikes heritage and is wider than that of its contemporaries and the tongue tab also retains a vintage feel.

The Cortez upper sits atop a Roshe sole unit to finish things off and being white is in stark contrast to the LD-1000’s dark upper hues.
