Let me introduce you to my favourite sneakers in the entire world…
Well, not so much introduce you because if you don’t know about these kicks you must live under a rock.
Nike Tuned originated in 1998, the OG sneaker has made a huge comeback over the past few years, now also known as ‘TN’s.’
Since the comeback of legendary TN Nike has dropped some wavy colourways, I have TN’s in three different colourways, all-black- the most common and classic colour, a triple olive (khaki) colourway and a wolf grey colourway, but I’m writing a different blog for those ones there.
Funnily enough, only my black TN’s are comfortable.
I buy junior sizes in almost all of my sneakers and there juniors U.K. size 6 as an EU 39 and a U.K. size 6 as an EU 40. My black TN’s are an EU 40 and my olive TN’s are an EU 39. Yes, before you wonder why I’m chatting shit about U.K. and EU sizes, it makes a huge difference.
Anyways, moving on… I’m sure none of you really care but, the purpose of the air-sole (the bubbles in the sole) enables stability and support for runners (and roadmen) when wearing the sneakers.
The revolutionary air-sole feature made its way into Nike’s footwear designs in the late 1970’s and have been added to many sneaker designs since. I’m not much of a runner and by ‘much’ I mean I don’t run at all so I guess many of us, myself included don’t use the shoe to its full potential, but just so you know, it was initially created as a running sneaker, not a fashion sneaker – in case any of you want to wear them for cardio purposes, that would totally work.

Links to cop the wolf grey colourway will be out in due course.
