When you hear Nike Air Max Plus, the first imagery that might pop into your head are those iconic designs that harken back to the 90s, typically marked by their neutral palettes. But this time around, Nike takes an unexpected turn, crafting a pair that is eerily evocative of the New York Knicks’ signature hues.
Stepping into the scene is the Nike Air Max Plus, a brainchild of Sean McDowell. This model has historically been a nod to the serene beauty of palm trees. Its latest iteration, however, draws an entirely different inspiration: basketball and the bustling city of New York. The foundational layer of this shoe is almost a “Triple White” marvel. Whether it’s the mesh upper, the refined leather heel, or even the laces and midsole, every element basks in pristine whiteness. This clean canvas then offers a striking contrast to the “Total Orange” and “Royal Blue” gradient that settles beautifully on the TPU form strips and the pivotal mid-foot shank. To accentuate, the swoosh’s trim and tongue tabs gleam with the distinct blue shade, reminiscent of courtside action.
But the game-changer? The full-length Air Max cushioning system that doesn’t shy away from making a statement with a vivid orange hue. Every step taken in these sneakers seems to echo the energy and vibrancy of a basketball game.
A glimpse of the Nike Air Max Plus Knicks Edition can be caught below. We wait with bated breath for more specifics on its launch.
