NIKE AIR MAX PLUS RETROSPECTIVE: THE EVOLUTION OF THE TN

Back in the mid-90s, a paradigm shift tilted the athletic footwear industry towards tech-heavy, kinetically enhanced design. Over at Nike, that was evident in shoes such as the Nike Air Max 95, which transitioned the Max franchise into a high-powered visual statement. Three years later, the Air Max Plus – also known on the street as the TN or Tuned 1 – hit the shelves. With spray-faded mesh uppers in striking blue and orange colourways, the TN was no shrinking violet. It didn’t just meekly sit around on the shelf hoping for attention, it was right up in your face from day one. The trademark Thermoplastic Vinyl Resin (TPVR) exoskeletal mesh upper and sculpted midfoot shanks infused with glitter added glamour, while the heavily detailed sole unit popped eyeballs from beneath. Amalgamated with the shoe’s undeniably aggressive stance, the Tuned Air package ignited a sonic boom vision of the future that rocked melons the world over.

A freak of nature, the Grey Nike tn has also nurtured a handy reputation as the premier bad-boy of the Max line-up. In certain precincts the world over, the TN’s good name is tarnished, tagged as a sneaker worn by people who are either up to no good or about to be. How this ‘prestigious’ rep was earned is a culturally intriguing scenario. To put it plain and simple, plain and simple people are intimidated by the TN, whereas the wild and crazy are magnetically drawn to the wild and crazy. Holding down the crown as one of the most expensive Nike runners at Foot Locker for well over a decade is another accolade that has certainly added cachet to the TN’s street-level hero status.  And yet… there’s an undeniable and insatiable thirst for the TN that simply refuses to rust out and fade away. From all-leather make-ups to patterns and prints, themed releases, celebratory issues, fluorescent highlights and reflective metallics, countless renditions have been delivered through Foot Locker doors over the years.

 

Nike to Sell ‘Back to the Future’ Power-Lacing Shoes for 2016 Holiday Season

Power lacing isn’t just a pipe dream in “Back to the Future: Part II” — Nike just announced today that it will sell a running shoe with “breakthrough, adaptive lacing” beginning this holiday season.

The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be available only to members of Nike+, the company’s running app.

“When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten,” Tiffany Beers, Nike senior innovator and the project’s technical lead, said on the Nike website. “Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect.”

“Undue pressure caused by tight tying and slippage resulting from loose laces are now relics of the past,” Nike’s website boasts. Nike designer Tinker Hatfield explains that you can manually adjust the shoes.

Nike gave Michael J. Fox a pair of Nike Air Max Tavas with self-lacing shoes on Oct. 21, 2015, the date when the actor’s character in “Back to the Future: Part II” traveled from 30 years from the past. Hatfield wrote to Fox at the time that Nike was creating “more pairs for support in aid of the Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2016.”

Hatfield said on the Nike website today, “Wouldn’t it be great if a shoe, in the future, could sense when you needed to have it tighter or looser? Could it take you even tighter than you’d normally go if it senses you really need extra snugness in a quick maneuver? That’s where we’re headed. In the future, product will come alive.”

The price of the shoe is not clear, though Nike said it will come in three colors. Photos on the Nike website show the shoe in white, black and gray.
