Emblematic of the shift in
As is obvious, the “Electric Green” takes its name from the vivid hues on its synthetic overlays. These rise out of the forefoot where they’re accompanied by silver “fangs,” crest towards the midfoot above a small Swoosh and fall back down under the collar, where they also fade to a dark navy. The mesh base on which these overlays sit offers a gradient of its own, going from white up front to a gray shade in the back.
Synthetic mudguards take on a soft gray tone of their own, and strips of hi-vis reflective material run across the toebox and up the tongue, where they meet an old-school Nike Air badge. A second Air badge is present on the heel, which, along with the collar, puts forth textured white leather detailing. Those textures match the white EVA foam midsole, which offers sharp ridges of its own and encases small clear Air Max units in the forefoot and a large clear heel Air Max unit. Colorful outsoles round off the look.
The Nike Air Max Plus 2 “Electric Green” is available at Nike UK now, and is priced at $180 USD.
