The Nike Tuned ‘Poseidon’ Surfaces From the Deep at Foot LockerRelease: 10 May 2023
The Nike Tuned is one of the most storied franchises in the Swoosh catalogue, thanks to its myriad nicknames and memorable colourways. Foot Locker have chronicled the sneaker’s vibrant history for decades, and now, surfacing from the deep is the ‘Poseidon’ edition that is sure to evoke comparisons to the dripped-out deity.
The Sean McDowell design starts off with a crisp white mesh base – as many strong TNs do – before adding blue gradients to the distinct TPU ribbing that reinforces the upper. This watery shade reaches a complementing blue mesh tongue. Some black lining behind the tongue and ankle collar adds extra contrast, while a shining gold Swoosh on the sides crowns this AMP like the Greek god that inspires its nickname. Down below, blue submerges the Air Max units along the midsole, which is always a welcome detail in a model that’s celebrated for its namesake Tuned Air system. Furthermore, the TPU midfoot shank follows the same gradient treatment as the upper ribbing for some top-to-bottom coordination.
Like many of the best Tuned colourways, the only place to obtain the ‘Poseidon’ is from Foot Locker. Sail over to their physical locations and web store right now to secure your pairs before supply dries up.
