Size and fit

Released as part of the Nike Shox collection is the Nike Shox TL shoe. Like other shoes in the group, both the Nike Shox TL men’s and the Nike Shox TL women’s flaunt a low-top construction with a lace closure for a snug, secure, and customize fit. 

The breathable mesh material on the upper conforms to the foot's shape and allows plenty of movement. Keeping the foot supported are the TPU cage, molded overlays throughout the midfoot, and a TPU plate in the heel.

Nike Shox TL Style

The Nike Shox TL is a re-release of the original 2003 model from the Swoosh brand. This recrafted version boasts a retro vibe all-over with its mesh base uppers and full-length Nike Shox cushioning technology. The futuristic overlays, on the other hand, give nothing but a bold look. 

This low-top kick offers versatile options for its men and women followers. Several colorways are made available to suit a wide range of style and color preference. Some of these include black/Amarillo/university red/black and pure platinum/chrome for men, and black/metallic hematite/max orange/black, white/luminous green/bright violet/black, and white/metallic silver/max orange/white for the ladies. 

Notable Features

One feature of the Nike Shox TL that stands out the most is the full-length Nike Shox cushioning. The Nike Shox, which took 16 years of research and development, first made an introduction in 2000 as a revolutionary cushioning technology for Nike’s running shoes. It utilizes spring-like Shox columns for enhanced durability, impact protection, and cushioning. A TPU heel counter supports the four Shox columns for equal impact energy distribution.

Nike Shox TL History

Nike has always been known as an innovative sneaker brand that designs and produces technologically-advanced sneaker models with improved performance. One promising technology from the brand is the Nike Shox. The Nike Shox is a cushioning technology that uses polyurethane columns that functions like a spring to absorb impact energy and provide supportive cushioning to wearers. It launched in 2000 after 16 years of research and development. 

Recently, the brand re-issued a recrafted version of its 2003 Nike Shox TL sneakers that’s true to its original form. The low-top retains the key features of the original version with upgraded materials to fit the demand of the current sneaker market. It features a full-length Nike Shox technology, mesh upper with molded overlays, TPU cage, TPU plate at the heel, and rubber waffle outsole.
