A technical wonder of early aughts design, the Nike Shox TL returns in a stark platinum and polar-blue recreation of the beloved 2003 icon. A breathable gradient knit mesh runs the length of the upper, banded by a glistening silver TPU cage for a snug, secure fit while silver patent leather adorns the tongue and heel. The main attraction of course is underfoot, where we find the mechanical, piston-like Shox absorption system. Layered underneath a supportive TPU plate, the Shox system consists of flexible columns, that compress and rebound for next-level absorption and propulsion. A foam midsole and non-marking waffled outsole then combine to make this one of the most technically advanced and striking releases to date.
