The Tennis Classic has always been one of Hiroshi Fujiwara’s favorite Nike shoes. In Holiday 2008 he brought in the low-key vintage interpretation; Nike Tennis Classic Pack in suede featured in four different solid colors. Last summer, Hiroshi worked with Japanese brand uniform experiment (developed by Hiroshi and Hirofumi Kiyonaga from SOPHNET) on two versions of Air Zoom Tennis Classic: white leather and blue suede.
For spring 2010, Hiroshi picked white upper with slightly shiny leather, mixed with gold foil accents on the heel and tongue. As we have seen in previous seasons, the shoe continues to play with subtlety and minimalism. The Swoosh design trademark is perforated on the side of the shoe, and the fragment design logo, a Hiroshi trademark used only for Nike project collaborations, quietly placed on the back heel.
The Air Zoom Tennis Classic HF will be available at select Nike Sportswear retailers on Jan. 19th.
