When you think of audacious footprints in the shoe world, the recent collection from Nike, the “SWOOSH!” pack, strides confidently forward. Contrary to initial assumptions given its moniker, this collection isn’t rife with the overuse of Nike‘s iconic check. Rather, it presents an ingenious twist on the insole designs of some of Nike’s most iconic footwear.
Emerging from the shadow of its kin like the Air Max 95 and the Air Huarache, the Nike Air Max Plus asserts its presence in the “SWOOSH!” pack. What catches one’s attention immediately is the artistry of the insole graphics. With a flair that feels like it was crafted with the careful stroke of an artist’s brush, it’s a delightful departure from the ordinary.
Color plays an instrumental role in setting the Nike Air Max Plus apart in the pack. The harmony of subtle cool hues dances across its gradient-centric base. This delightful color play extends to the lace unit, lining, and shank plate. But the designers didn’t stop there. Punches of deep red intermingle, giving the logo its due prominence. This is artfully juxtaposed with the starkness of black overlays, cages, and laces – a design decision that brings a grounded balance to the shoe’s aesthetic.
As fans awaits with bated breath for a closer inspection of the Nike Air Max Plus from the “SWOOSH!” collection, preliminary visuals hint at an imminent release, both on Nike.com and with select shoe retailers.
