There are so many releases for Air Max Day 2017 that it’s hard to keep track of which pair to actually go after. From the atmos x Nike Air Max 1, to Riccardo Tisci’s luxurious Nike Air Max 97 reworking, there’s truly something for everyone. But just in case none of those collaborative options or OG colorways appease you (and you might happen to be a fan of the Western Conference juggernaut San Antonio Spurs, or simple muted colorways in general) then this Air Max Plus Black/Cool Grey is the way to go. The fire-like overlays return in a Cool Grey to Wolf Grey gradient while a contrasting orange visible air unit hits the heel for some added vibrancy. A black mudguard and base add a simple finish for a Nike Air Max Plus release perfect for any occasion. International shops like Overkill have the pair available today.
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a new colorway of the Nike Air Max Plus. The silhouette has always been popular overseas where’s it goes by a different name – the Nike Air Tuned 1 – but Nike Sportswear is still tinkering with new materials to this day. We’ve seen a “Satin Pack” and an overall decline in the traditional gradients that made this retro running model such a must-have in its early days, and today a new Nike Air Max Plus Swimming Pool showcases more experimentation in the colorway department.
The Nike Air Max Plus’s protective flame-like cage overlay is completely absent in this offering. Transparent tape-like textures instead hint at the pattern so most of your focus can stay on the crystal blue and white upper that harkens back to days of summer. The hypnotizing teal shade is contrasted by the ‘TN Air’ logo on the heel while the visible air isn’t so visible anymore. Instead, the midsole and outsole unit gets covered completely in white which extends to the mudguard in a slight gradient. ‘Nike Air’ stitching hits the tongue in a matching shade.
