We Celebrate 20-Years of the Nike Air Max Plus TN
20-years later and we love them more than ever. Sean McDowell, back in 1998, designed the first ever Nike Air Max Plus Tuned (TN).
Inspired by the view of dusk in Florida’s sky, the sun setting and the tonal range for the TN was born (originally named ‘Sky Air’) - The first colour-way being the dark blue fading into a light pale shade.
The sky remained his inspiration with the golden sunset tones, producing ‘Sunset’ aka Orange Tiger. The black design lines were a more tech-y, geometric illustration of the palm trees that he saw when admiring the sky.
Although adored by many in the streetwear fashion sphere, the shoe’s lightweight nature made it perfect for runners, giving them stability and support with the foam sole and Tuned Air cushioning.
Since the Nike Air Max Plus TN hit the shelves, it’s been nothing but a success and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary, along with the futuristic-retro campaign clips, Foot Locker hosted an event at their Marble Arch store with YouTube sensation Nella Rose.
The new shoe is available to purchase from store in Hyper Blue, Sunset and Purple. Shop here
