The Nike Air Max Plus, known sometimes as the Nike Ar Max TN, was one of the boldest releases to arrive in 1998. It isn’t hard to see why thanks to a flame-like overlay system that combined performance mesh with a patent sheen of a futuristic webbing to add lockdown support. The silhouette has since been a popular facet in European sneakerhead’s hearts, and they’ll be especially happy with the upcoming “Love/Hate” Pack. The Air Max Plus shines in a high contrast red and black theme, as you can choose between the two shades for your mesh base while patent leather hits the mudguard. Chances are both of these pairs will remain European exclusives once they hit overseas retailers on March 26th, but those of you dwelling stateside can still hold out hope for a U.S. release this Spring. If that’s the case, we’ll keep you updated on availability right here on Sneaker News.

Check out more details below and head over to our Release Datespage for a better look at all the coming attractions.
The adidas Ultra Boost continues to evolve as we get official images of what many are calling the “Laceless” version of the popular running shoe. Featuring a slightly mid-cut silhouette and devoid of any lacing construction, this new Ultra Boost variation introduces a new Primeknit pattern at the toe as well as a sock-like cuff on the upper ankle. In place of the standard “cage” are ribbed sections on lateral, medial, and in-step of the shoe that likely provides a snugger fit for lockdown.Release date information for the adidas Ultra Boost Laceless Mid has yet to be revealed, but you can certainly expect several colorways such as the popular Trace Cargo as well as the Oreo look. Full images are just ahead.
