Under the Baedar: Nike Air Tuned Max "Smoke Grey"

The most perfect Y2K trainer is hypeless — and we like it that way.

While hype and resale fuel the current retail market, there are still footwear gems under the radar for true sneaker lovers to uncover. Such are the items we wish to highlight in Under the Baedar, a series dedicated to stylish, shoppable picks that you won’t find on every sneakerhead.

The Y2K era brought with it a slew of trends from cargos and shoulder bags to shrug sweaters and jersey dresses. In the world of sneakers specifically, the influence is stronger than ever. For example, Nike has taken the opportunity to rerelease classics from the early aughts from the Air Adjust Force to the Air Tuned Max of 1999 to capitalize on the trend.

The latter returned in a handful of colorways last year, including a futuristic “Smoke Grey” makeup. It’s the quintessential millennium trainer with a mesh and metallic construction and space-inspired styling.

As of this post the shoe is available at a variety of outlets for around $100 USD. Use the SKU “DC9288-001” to search for retailers.
