The evolution of Air has been present since the Nike Air Max 1 released in 1987. While Air was implemented in 1978, the Air Max 1 took the technological revolution to new heights with Tinker Hatfield's disruptive vision.
With the same disruptive ethos in mind, the Nike Air Tuned Max shattered all preconceived expectations of what Air could be and what it could achieve. The "Celery" colorway made its debut in 1999 and drew a polarized consensus...at first.
Two decades after its controversial release and rollout, the nearly-mythical Air Max member finally gets its retro debut.
The shoe is constructed with a thick mesh base with a matching set of laces and tongue. Its minimalist, nearly Swoosh-less design adds to the pair's wearability and overall versatility.
The pair's TPU cage and highly exposed, and enlarged Air units add a comfort level with its aesthetic design guaranteed to turn heads. The iridescent finish using the Saturn red and celery green aligns with the shoe's perfect reintroduction.
Arriving for the first time since 1999, the Air Tuned Max is a nod to the past as Air Max Day goes beyond March 26. Truthfully, every day should be Air Max Day.
The Air Tuned Max "Celery" arrives at Manor soon. Stay tuned for official release information and procedures.
