The Nike Air Max Plus aka AMP was released in the fall of 1998. The shoe was the first running shoe to feature Nike’s Tuned Air system. The Nike Tuned Air system consists of two opposing polymer hemispheres that rebound against each other to absorb shock. The Nike Air Max Plus is commonly referred to as the Air TN or Air Tuned.The Air Max Plus was a huge hit in London and Europe (especially France), but was not a major hit at home in the US. In fact, the MSRP has actually dropped in the US from its initial price of $125 to $110 – something that rarely happens with Nike. Nike wisely has retroed the Air Max Plus countless times, mostly in European markets. In the US, you can only find the Air Max Plus at Footlocker, Champs, Footaction as it is exclusive to their chain.

The Nike Air Max Plus, despite being released in over 100 colorways, has some legendary favorites. The first color it was released in “Hyper Blue” was a huge hit with the US market and foreign markets. Also, the Orange/Black/Red colorway is a must have even to US sneakerheads. This colorways was not released in the US most recently thus making it even more desirable.

Nike has tried releasing different variations of the Air Max Plus. Nike Air Max Plus has been made in a slip-on as well as the Air Max Plus 2, Air Max Plus 3, Air Max Plus 4, and Air Max Plus 5 but none of these were slightly successful.
