Nike returns to its 1999 Nike Air Tuned Max silhouette to deliver a cult favorite “Persian Violet” colorway made popular by the Nike Air Max BW.

Present under an abundance of tones and textures on this shoe rests a perforated white mesh. Glossy black leather overlays wrap around the heel and extend from the toe to the laterals in a liquid motion. Padded neoprene collars painted dark iridescent purple offer additional support. Violet accents coat the leather tongue lining, detailing on the outsole, and matte TPU webbing molds running over each eyelet on the side panel. Moving downwards, sandwiched between the wavy black midsole and thin outsole lies the signature translucent Air bubble. The “Tn Air” motif is present on the bottoms and a swoosh accompanied by five dots on the heel represents affiliation to Nike’s defunct sub-label Nike Alpha Project.

Priced at $170, stay tuned for a release in the coming weeks at Nike and other select retailers.

In other footwear news, the Air Jordan 6 is rumored to release in a “UNC” colorway for March Madness.
