THE ORIGINAL ALPHA. Just like the original design, the Nike Air Tuned Max brings you cutting-edge innovation and fine-tuned comfort. Born from Nike's clandestine and bygone Alpha Project, the sleek, track-inspired design nods to the fast-paced division that brought you the Presto and so much more. Iridescent finishes and full-length, visible Air cushioning underfoot make a seismic statement.
Originally designed for performance running, the low-profile Air-sole units in the heel provide lightweight cushioning. The inspiration for the iridescent upper came from high-end, hot rod paint jobs. The color-shifting finish changes as you walk. The sleek, track-inspired upper is made with durable synthetic materials for a lightweight, breathable feel. Plush foam midsole features flowing lines that add energy to every outfit. Stretchy, bootie-inspired tongue wraps your foot for a personalized feel. Launched in 1999, the Nike Alpha Project fused cutting-edge technology with exciting personality-driven design. The 5 dots on the tongue and heel pay tribute to the Alpha Project's performance and comfort.
