Shock factor is one of the most recognisable features of Nike‘s Air Max Plus, but what’s most shocking about this ‘Slip SP’ women’s iteration is how unrecognisable the silhouette has been rendered. Attributes like the clear toe-guard, TN logos and flame-like detailing – embossed in this style – are all there. The tuned-air sole is all there, in full blacked-out force, with opaqued Air bubbles following the trend we saw recently embraced by the ‘Le Requin’ Pack. A golden chrome heel patch breaks up the otherwise solid-black slip on. The addition of a neoprene bootie with an elongated tongue ensures that they can be slipped on and off with ease – an interesting update, perhaps allowing for a quicker escape in a touch-and-go-moment?
What we do know about this Air Max Plus is that it is set to drop on February 21st, online at Titolo.
