In celebration of the Nike TN OG's 20th anniversary and re-release, END. has teamed up with Nike & LAW Magazine to showcase the shoes iconic status on UK style.
Highlighting the biggest style moments in the silhouettes 20 year history, the collaborators have come together to deliver a nostalgia heavy lookbook. The lookbook is accompanied by a 20 track playlist curated by Benji B, with each track promising to reflect each statement year within the TN saga.
Benji shared his thoughts on the Nike TN: “The TNs first came out during a very technical era of trainers when you had Nike Footscapes and Air Max 95s. Air Max 1 ran the streets in London the same way Air Force 1 did in New York, and for all that crew, the TN was the next natural step. A lot of silhouettes tie into a particular scene or era but the TN doesn’t belong to a genre, and it doesn’t belong to anyone. I associate them with the tail end of Garage era and Drum N Bass, dark Garage and early Grime but Indie kids in the early two-thousands would wear them too. They’ve also been adopted by the Modern Goth and the Art House scenes, so they’ve been pretty ever-present. To some people it’s a really ugly shoe, but to others it’s so sick and beautiful. It’s like marmite – you’re either a TN person or you’re not.”
