An icon of the street, the Air Max plus TN surfaces once again with aggressive styling cues staying true to itself. Originally designed way backing ’98, the AM Plus is a Sean McDowell design silhouette which aimed to create a Tuned Air shoe with a runners aesthetic.
That however, was easier said than done. With what is now a cult status attached to it, the Air Max Plus didn’t start off life with ease. This all began with the challenge of using their latest Max Air unit which implemented two opposing hemispheres to evolve the idea of cushioning. It’s easy to forget it was originally designed for running however, it’s now a frequent go to for those attending fashion weeks due to its unique appearance. For a lot of the design cues featured throughout, we have Florida to thank for that. From a whale fin inspired shank to the now iconic gradient upper, it all stems from what he was seeing during his time there. Originally dubbed ‘Sky Air’, this was a trigger for McDowell which led him to think about the amazing colours Floridas sunrise/sunsets delivered and often played with blues and purples to replicate this.
Now a mainstay within the Nike lineage and with hundreds of colour ways through its rich history, the latest set of Air Max Plus have landed at Footpatrol including the ‘Light Photography’.
