Another year, another Air Max anniversary! This year, it's the Air Max Plus’ turn to celebrate the big 2-0 (along with the Air Max 98). Nike have chosen to mark the occasion by fusing the fan-favourite silhouette with last year’s birthday boy, the Air Max 97.
The Swoosh will release two hybrids models — an Air Max 97/Plus and and Air Max Plus 97. Both share the same soothing colourway, which mixes cream with shades of blue and green.
As far as the design goes, there’s nothing groundbreaking; the Air Max 97/Plus features a 97 upper on a TN sole, while the Air Max Plus/97 flips the theme with a TN upper on a 97 sole. As far as hybrids go, these guys are sitting towards the front of the pack.
The Nike Air Max 97/Plus and Plus 97 'Barley Rose/Leche Blue' will release on February 10 at Nike retailers. This is a birthday bash you'll wanna be a part of!
