It was back in 1998 when Nike unveiled the Air Max Plus and this running shoe model gained recognition for its striking design. Like the models that Nike had previously dropped as a part of the Air Max line, the Air Max Plus also featured visible air units. However, instead of the usual Nike Air, Nike enhanced the model’s performance by adding the Nike Tune tech. As of lately, a very odd thing is that the most recent Air Max Plus Nike release 2015 is not even currently available to sneakerheads in the particular city it is targeted at.
Sneaker collectors from New York City will definitely want to get their hands on this particular upcoming Nike Air Max Plus Tuned 1 colorway, considering that it has been dubbed “Knicks.” However, sneaker wearers from the city are also going to feel quite bittersweet about this particular Nike release 2015. While it is probably quite obvious that this Nike Air Max Plus Tuned 1 iteration takes inspiration from the New York Knicks, it may not be apparent that this sneaker is also inspired by the New York Mets. However, it is not yet certain if sneakerheads in New York City or the rest of the U.S. will even be able to cop a pair.
Inspired by two of the most-loved New York-based teams in the sports of basketball and baseball, respectively, these kicks have been dressed up accordingly. The upper of this sneaker is entirely covered in a Game Royal hue and to add to the true NYC vibe, the upper also sports traces of Orange as well.
Now, the reason this particular Nike release 2015 is going to dishearten sneakerheads from New York City is because the Nike Air Max Plus Tuned 1 “Knicks” is currently a European exclusive. However, stateside sneaker collectors do not have to give up their hopes entirely because these kicks may actually hit the shelves in the United States as well.
