At the time, the Air Max Tuned was a cutting-edge sneaker that took the industry by storm. Visible tech had become ever-present, but the Air Max Tuned put this at the forefront of its radical design alongside a new shape that was fashion-forward, and its retro color schemes only enhanced the shoe’s allure.
This cream iteration is no different. A mesh base is overlayed with “Iron Grey” — read metallic silver — leather that marks out the toe area, vamp, and rear quarter, before “Rattan”-hued TPU overlays create the sneaker’s unique upper shapes. The same creamy tone highlights the tongue, which is made from champagne-like cream nylon, while “Hemp” lines the interior.
At the rear, a shocking twist of chromatic green hits up the Air Max Tuned’s heel clip, which sits above more silvery leather and the quintessential, bulbous sole unit.
Nike’s Air Max Tuned in “Cream II/Iron Grey/Rattan/Hemp” is expected to release at retailers such as Asphalt Gold on November 11, costing €169 EUR (approximately $195 USD). Take a closer look at the pair above.
