The Nike Air Tuned Max is back. After a successful and somewhat hard to get launch of the OG “Celery” look this Spring, today we have an early look at an upcoming “Cream” colorway of the classic Air Max sneaker, coming soon.

When the Nike Air Tuned Max was first introduced in 1999, it was the pinnacle of the brand’s various Air technologies combined with other essential running properties into one. The mixed material construction, featuring mesh, synthetic leathers, and plastic TPU caging, made for one of the most comforting yet high-performing running shoes of the era, and has since become a legend amongst Nike heads not only for these traits, but for its elusiveness over the past 22 years. Now, Nike is pulling out all the stops for the Tuned Max’s first-ever retro release, slowly pulling back the curtain on a handful of new colorways set to arrive this year. Today, we have an early look at an upcoming “Cream” styling, which mixes a cream mesh base layer with matching TPU cages, silver synthetic overlays, and a celery green heel counter to complete the look.


Nike’s next new color scheme of the 1999 Air Tuned Max has not yet been announced for release, though the light “Cream” look is expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks. The new Air Tuned Max will be available from both Nike and select retailers, with a price tag of $170 per pair. Check out the official image below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
