One of Nike’s first nylon mesh shoes, this re-creation of the 1976 original gets all the details just right. The LD stands for long distance. The 1000 meant it was intended for runners who racked up more than 1000 miles per year. No matter how far you’re going, the LD 1000 shoe will carry you there in comfort and vintage style.
The original styles, revisted and crafted to look 30 years old – fresh out of the box.
More pics after the jump…
- Nylon and suede upper keeps the shoe light on your feet.
- Herringbone tread outsole provides great traction for those on the stop-and-go.
- These are men’s sizes. Women should subtract 1.5 from their usual size. (e.g., a women’s 8 = a men’s 6.5).
- It’s vintage. Circa now. www.nikevintage.com
