Collection: Nike Air Max Plus TN


In 1998 , Nike embarks on a new challenge and unveils the Air Max Plus . Silhouette that has become emblematic in the catalog of the brand with the Swoosh , this Air Max had to get rid of several preconceptions. Born from a collaboration with Foot Locker , this Air Max Plus arrives like a UFO in the sneaker landscape. Quickly became popular in Australia , the one also called TN Or Shark has also become an icon. However, unlike Australia, the Air Max Plus has, in France , quickly became pejoratively categorized as city ​​pair .
Resulting from joint work between Nike and Foot Locker (the two companies share the patents), the TN was designed by Sean McDowell in 1997 . It is through a journey in Florida that the designer, newly arrived at Nike, drew his inspiration to imagine this model. Its aggressive shape was therefore directly taken from the Floridian landscapes through an upper in mesh accompanied by details in TPU which recall the movement of palm trees .
Three original colors, released in 1998, Hyper Blue , Orange Tiger And Shark Gray have become essential when we talk about the Air Max Plus.


While it has several names, Air Max Plus, TN or Requin, this silhouette released at the end of the 90s is ultimately only one. Everything is one question of naming and the one that best suits the person talking about it.
Known for its aggressive look , the Air Max Plus recalls in its clean lines the Air Max 90 which gives an impression of speed at first glance. In this same idea of ​​joining the features of the TN, the Air Max 98 it reuses the mini Swoosh, discreet but terribly effective, present on the Requin since its release.
Even if it does not come close to the TN at the upper level, the Air Max 95 joins its little sister at the sole level. Compared to models released before the Air Max Plus, the AM95 uses the same cushioning on the front of the pair. The difference appears at the rear due to new technology Tuned Air .

What size should I choose for the Air Max Plus TN? How and with what to wear the famous Nike shark?

The Nike Air Max TN are slightly fitted to the foot, so it is best to choose a half size larger than your usual size if you have wide feet. The first outfit that comes to mind when thinking of the iconic Nike shark is obviously the tracksuit or jogging pants. But make no mistake, it will fit perfectly with other more elegant and chic outfits.
