The Nike Air Max Plus III (3), often overlooked in favor of its Tuned Air relatives, is finally ready to take center stage, if only for a moment.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Air Max Plus, the second sequel to Sean McDowell’s iconic design from 1998 has emerged in a striking metallic silver, black, and yellow colorway. With a futuristic and shimmering finish on its textile upper, this sneaker exudes confidence and boldness. The upper features a series of lines that highlight the heel, adding a vibrant yellow flair reminiscent of the sun. This sun-kissed hue also adorns the swooshes, lace loops along the tongue, and traditional “Tn Air” badges, injecting energy into the design.
The major update to McDowell’s original Air Max Plus lies in the Tuned Air sole unit. This exaggerated proposition elevates the shoe from its performance roots to the realm of lifestyle sneakers, doubling down on its street appeal. The midsole and waffle-patterned outsole are predominantly black, providing a sleek look, but touches of yellow on the bottom-half keep things fresh and exciting.
While Nike has yet to announce specific launch details on their website, it’s only a matter of time before this highly anticipated release hits the shelves. In the meantime, let’s enjoy the official photos of the Air Max Plus 3, teasing us with what’s to come.
For those craving more from the Nike empire, mark your calendars for October 28th when the “Cherry” 12s, last seen during Michael Jordan’s fifth NBA title run, make their triumphant return.
