I think some of you are mistaking when they were retroed from their initial release. These were extremely popular when they first dropped. That's why they retroed them so quickly and they had a ton of colorways..
And never stopped going in Europe.
I dunno... these were very popular as far as I remember... until Shox released. Once the shox line took off I saw alot of people migrate from Tn and TL Maxs in favor of shox.
I remember alot of shorter people loving shox because they made you so much taller.
i could be wrong b/c i couldn't really afford these when they first came out in the early 2000's, but i only remember seeing a few different colorways of these. don't get me wrong, these were popular enough in the states to warrant a retro (and a pretty successful one at that) but every time I've been to Europe in the past 10-12 years (at least 10 times), they've had at least 5 DIFFERENT colorways sitting on the shelves of every footlocker I'd step into. and usually another 3 colorways sitting on the sales racks. I'm talking, literally, hundreds of colorways amassed steadily over 10+ years.yeah these were never that popular in the states but i made a few pickups whenever i was in europe...such a great shape and silhouette *but really uncomfortable
are those carbon fibers available anywhere else?
i may be off with my dates, but i was under the impression that in the US we had the initial drop back in 2000 or whatever, and then another pretty big drop in 2007-2008, and then that godawful hybrid push in 2009 (each mildly successful)
