The Nike Air Max Plus, a sneaker with a legacy spanning over two decades, has once again captured the hearts of footwear enthusiasts with its latest iteration in “Neon Yellow.” First introduced to the world in 1998, Sean McDowell’s masterwork celebrates its 25th anniversary with a fresh and vibrant colorway that ensures its relevance and appeal in today’s dynamic sneaker culture.
The Nike Air Max Plus continues to diversify its portfolio with an anticipated array of original styles to be released exclusively at Foot Locker throughout 2024. The new gray, navy and neon yellow arrangement stands out, offering a tantalizing preview and satisfying the cravings of avid fans who have followed the Tuned Air lineage since its inception.
The design of the upcoming Nike Air Max Plus stays true to McDowell’s original vision from the late ’90s, albeit with a few modern tweaks. The sneaker forgoes the traditional TPU overlays on the upper, opting instead for a sleek flush fuse material. The mesh base layers bask in a deep blue hue, creating a harmonious contrast to the grayscale medley that surrounds it. Branding accents on the tongue and profiles pop in a bold neon yellow, creating a subtle yet intriguing link to other Nike performance models of the era.

The vibrant story continues underfoot. The Tuned Air and Air Max units have a vibrant yellow flair, complemented by whale tail shanks at the midfoot that embrace the same vibrant hue. The outsole, with its waffle pattern traction, opts for a dark gray tone, although some of the upper’s accent colors make a welcome appearance.
While we eagerly await the official release, you can feast your eyes on the official photos of this stunning pair. As of now, no release details have been confirmed on nike.com, but we expect more information to surface in early 2024, priced at $175 USD.
