The early 2000s was a pivotal time for sneaker technology. The ’90s had been largely experimental and equally as impactful. Much of what would come in the decade after was compounding experimentation.
Nike’s Shox technology speaks directly to that innovation.
In 2003, the Shox TL took the bouncy energy return system that had been largely relegated to the heel and extended it the entire length of the footbed. The upper was bulkier not by happenstance but out of necessity, to balance the enhancements of the Shox system.
The shoe is back for a retro run and a Speed Red iteration is already available at select retailers. Grab a pair of the Nike Shox TL now for $170 at Kith.
