In a grand celebration of its 25th anniversary, the sneaker has made quite the fashion statement. It has shown up in numerous outfits that are easily accessible, as well as a few special collaborations. The original Tuned Air silhouette, pushed by the Swoosh, has garnered unprecedented attention, allowing the design team in Oregon to embark on new and exciting experiments. The latest offering, created by McDowell in 1998, has now emerged with padded nylon uppers, a departure from its signature mesh base layer and gradient finishes.
Instead, the Air Max Plus embraces a clean white look, serving as the perfect backdrop for an unexpected and eye-catching reflective arrangement.
The Nike Tn has always incorporated reflective details, but the upcoming release takes it to the next level with a striking luminous finish on the textile and fabric elements of its upper. While the leather mudguards stick to a more subdued off white color scheme, the sole units bring a breath of fresh air to the classic design.
Not only does the toe cap feature a unique swoosh, but the Tuned Air and Air Max setup is also concealed, with cutouts that are discreetly filled in. The familiar Nike Running-inspired outsole adds a touch of familiarity, with a black and silver design that complements the reflective nature of the upper.
At present, there is limited information available regarding the source of inspiration for the duo. However, it is highly probable that this will soon change in the upcoming months. In the meantime, indulge in the pleasure of viewing the official images of the exclusive Air Max Plus. When the footwear becomes available on nike.com, anticipate a price tag of $180 USD, which is the customary manufacturer's suggested retail price for elevated renditions of McDowell's creations.
