Nike’s Air Tuned Max has begun its triumphant return, reintroduced as a retro model this year for the first time since 1999. Now, Nike is making up for lost time with plenty of new colorways, like this “Neon 3M” look, coming soon.

The Air Tuned Max is back. After a near-twenty-year hiatus, Nike revived the beloved Air model last year, bringing back the original colorway of the high-performance running shoe before introducing a range of new styles, one of which we have an early look at today. Dressed almost entirely in black, this new Tuned Max adds some incredibly bright panels to the outer layers of the upper, covering the toe box in safety orange, and the heels in vibrant volt green. These portions also come with a reflective 3M underlay, catching any light that may shine on them.


Nike’s next new color scheme of the 1999 Air Tuned Max has not yet been announced for release, though the eye-catching “Neon 3M” 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.
