#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: Nike Air Max Plus

Posted by Brandon Ford on


#THROWBACKTHURSDAY is considered a weekly holiday in terms of social media. During this day people reflect on past events including old pictures of themselves. Here at RESHOEVN8R, #THROWBACKTHURSDAY evokes a different kind of nostalgia. This time we take a look at Nike Air Max Plus information. At the time, Nike’s Air Max collection was at its peak. The technology infused in these sneakers defined Nike's Air Max collection as the most advanced shoes on the market. The Nike Air Max Plus has been ranked as one of the 100 Best Nike’s of all time! They've recently made a comeback, dropping in both the Silver and Gold Bullet colorways. 
During the late 90's, Nike's Air Max collection was at its peak. The technology infused in these sneakers defined their kicks as the most advanced shoes on the market. The Nike Air Max Plus facts have shown that the shoe has even ranked as one of the 100 Best sneakers of all time!
Debuting in the fall of 1998, this sneaker was the first to feature the Tuned Air System. This technology proved ideal for shock absorption during high-impact activities such as running. When the shoe first released it was a huge hit in Europe, selling out at most retailers. However, the Nike Air Max Plus trend took a while to catch on stateside. In fact, Nike dropped the price from $125 to $110. As the sneaker’s popularity gradually increased, Nike began releasing more colorways. In total there were over 100 renditions of the Air Max Plus. Strangely, the KG III implemented the same Tuned Air System not long after its introduction. Nike Air Max fans will agree that the Air Max Plus was a memorable release. Remnants of this shoe can be found in later Air Max models. Have these ever shared a place in your closet? Scoop a pair from Nike for $150 and see what the hype is about!
