With December right around the corner, the accompanying releases are set to make their way into many retailers and Nike storefronts all across the globe. At a time for fervent holiday shopping, the Beaverton brand won’t quite let us a rest with a series of strong iterations on some of their most notable silhouettes, now updating the Air Max Plus. The UK fashion staple — and burgeoning stateside model — is set to receive the same iconic “Greedy” motif found on the AM95 that bears the same namesake. While the latter takes on 4 separate OG colorways, the former tones things down a touch with only two of the most recognizable variations: the Sunset and Hyper Blue. Though arriving this time with an overlaid grid pattern across the entire upper, the newcomer to the “Greedy” tag takes things in a different direction. Some might argue the model should be done up in a gradient — as fitting of many of the Plus’s past offerings — but instead the designers have taken on a more overt stitched split down the middle in a somewhat similar execution to the UNION Jordan 1s. Along the medial side is the classic orange while the lateral is a much cooler blue, creating quite a strong love letter to the sneaker’s deeply rooted history. The Air Max Plus “Greedy” is set to hit Nike.com and select retailers come December 8th.
