Recently, Sean McDowell’s 1998 design took on a sustainability-focused set under the “Terrascape” banner.

The grid-patterned material still shows up in the midfoot — beneath palm tree-inspired plastic overlays — but the forefoot and heel areas feature more summer-appropriate makeup. The toe box reinforcement opts for a canvas construction instead of molded plastic, while the midsole takes the biggest update to McDowell’s original Tuned Air proposal from 24 years ago: Crater Foam, which debuted in the Nike Space Hippie line, works in tandem with Air Max units to deliver reliable cushioning.
