First Look: Nike Air Max Plus 3 - 'Hyper Blue'

Cool blue gradients appear on the mesh base. A yellow Swoosh provides some branded flair before the remainder of the upper is quickly commandeered by a plethora of accents and overlays.

Black leather encircles the collar and mudguard while the signature detail is provided by a large black plastic heel cage, itself embellished with rubberized blue accents that spring up from the midfoot shank. Yellow TN badges then appear the medial midfoot and tongue.

The Air Max cushioning system is split between a full-size unit in the heel and two smaller-size units in the forefoot. “Tuned Air” text under the jet black plastic toe cap and pops of detail on the outsole complete the look.

The Nike Air Max Plus 3 - 'Hyper Blue' is available at selected retailers.

First Look: Kendrick Lamar x Nike React Element 55

Split coloured and loud while still simultaneously quite neutral, the pair infuses the renowned artist’s style in footwear form yet again with one half quite divergent from the opposite of the same foot.

At the lateral base, as the lightest version of the focal motif, a bright marble print is plastered down with the medials pitching towards a black variation of the very same graphic.
