BOLD GRAPHIC, CLASSIC COMFORT
The Nike Air Max Plus NS GPX Men's Shoe keeps the legendary "Tuned" Air cushioning of the 1998 original. Up top, the wavy design lines are smoothed out to set the stage for the classic Tn branding.
Air Max Plus Origins
Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort—suddenly they could see it. The Nike Air Max franchise would go on to own the '90s with a succession of now-iconic releases. In 1998, the Air Max Plus introduced a cushioning system that "tuned" Air-Sole units to specific parts of the foot. This gave runners a more stable stride, but the shoe's unique look earned it an influence beyond any performance benefit. Its sunset colorways and wavy design lines, inspired by wind-blown beachscapes, garnered a cult-like following of sneakerheads that grew into a cultural phenomenon.
