We recently heard from Nike‘s footwear designer Sean McDowell that the Air Max Plus was inspired by “palm trees blowing in the wind,” thus it’s only fitting that the famous ’90s sneaker’s latest colorway is an earthy “Cargo Khaki” scheme.
The retro runner’s distinctly wavy upper boasts a dark olive green nylon mesh base and gradient dark-to-light olive rubber overlay. A leather heel counter adds a premium touch to the popular model, bright yellow and red “Tn AIR” accents at the heel and outsole add some subtle vibrancy, while a color-blocked midsole in light olive, white and dark olive further accentuates the sneaker’s bold, sculptural look.
Flip through the photo set above and head over to select Nike retailers such as Footshop now to pick up a pair of the Air Max Plus in “Cargo Khaki” for $197 USD. For something more 2000s, the Nike Shox sneaker makes a return at a Sneakeasy pop-up.
