One of the most beloved international models — we get it stateside occasionally, but not to the same degree of proliferation — the Air Max Plus (aka Tuned 1) gets a distinctive new look on its latest Foot Locker Australia exclusive: the Nike Air Max Plus Denim.
The nickame, actually is something of a misnomer. While the shoe’s black leather trim and tonal webbed overlays frame a dark upper that resembles denim, the actual material tilts a bit closer to “function” on the fashion-function spectrum. Lightweight mesh instead comprises the upper, promising the aesthetics of denim but the fit and feel of light, breathable mesh. Win-win.
The Nike Air Max Plus Denim is now available at Australian Foot Locker locations. A US launch doesn’t look likely.
