Foot Locker celebrates the Nike Tuned Air anniversary with the 'TN 25th' and 'Stay Tuned' book

Dear community, Foot Locker is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Nike TN or Air Max Plus with an exclusive version entitled Nike 'TN 25th'. We show you the story behind this special design in detail here!

The history of the Nike TN

The Nike TN is a timeless sneaker that has always played a role the world of sneakers. The design made its debut in 1998 and was designed by Sean McDowell. Fun fact: he came up with the idea for the design of the sneaker even before he started working for Nike. Incidentally, he was inspired by the beach in Florida, the blue sky and the beautiful palm trees. You can find more information about the silhouette in our sneaker news!

Foot Locker presents the Nike 'TN 25th'

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Nike TN, Foot Locker is launching the 'TN 25th'. The kick comes with an exclusive design that was created for the global community. The most popular TN models were voted for by 150,000 sneaker fans worldwide via social media and the four finalists from a total of 16 designs were put together to create this design, which we are showing you today.

The result is a kick with an upper in the colorways 'Sanguine' and 'Fireberry', which virtually merge together visually. On the outside, the colour gradient meets 'Hyper Blue', which marks an iconic colorway of the TN series. As is classic for a TN, it also comes with black mesh overlays and logos on the heels.

Foot Locker also refers to itself as: Home of TN and is known for a large stock of many Air Max Plus colorways.

Coffee Table Book 'Stay Tuned'

In addition to the sneaker, Foot Locker is also presenting a limited edition coffee table book 'Stay Tuned' in collaboration with Sneaker Freaker and Nike. Following a ten-year development phase, the book features the history of the Nike TN, iconic silhouettes and exclusive interviews with TN designer Sean McDowell and many more.

Tomas Petersson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Foot Locker Europe, explains:

"For 25 years, Foot Locker has been the "Home of TN". It's been fantastic to work with Nike over the years, launching hundreds of fresh colour schemes and reissues of OG favourites, all of which have helped establish the TN as an icon in the sneaker and TN community. We are extremely excited to release the "TN 25th" as well as the Sneaker Freaker coffee-table book and look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership with Nike. Both the book and the shoe were produced in limited quantities and are true collector's items - a must-have for true sneaker fans. In addition, the events in key cities across Europe provide a fantastic opportunity for members of the sneaker community to gather and celebrate the last 25 years of the popular Nike TN."
