Nike LDV
The mesh upper on the Nike LDV makes it one of the first running shoes to have a breathable upper. The waffle outsole was ideal for off-road running. In 1999, the Nike LDV was reissued with a few tweaks. The mesh upper was no longer used, and was replaced by leather. Also, Guam-inspired versions were released in Japan.
