The Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus is expected to be among the brand’s recent additions to its catalog of durable sneaker designs. With a design inspired by the University of North Carolina, this new iteration of the shoes recently appeared online. Like its previous variants, the pair is made with eco-friendly Nike Grind elements.
The upcoming Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus “UNC” model will feature a Blue and White colorway. It should be released in the next few weeks, but the official release date is still under wraps. The shoes will retail for $185 a pair at Nike’s online stores and other affiliated retailers.
Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus Will Arrive In A UNC-Inspired Colorway
For the unfamiliar, Air Max Terrascape Plus is a hybrid design of two of the brand’s most beloved models, namely Air Max Plus and Vapormax Plus. It was first introduced to the sneaker community in 2021.
Earlier in 2022, the label introduced the ‘Pale Green’, ‘Triple Black’ and ‘Beetroot’ colorways of the Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus. The latest edition will see the silhouette draped in the UNC color scheme, namely blue and white.
The majority of the uppers feature distinct shades of white that look quite sophisticated, but hits of University Blue add a pop of vibrancy. The white base of the upper complements the blue around the tips and eyelets.
Here, the eyelets, made with white TPU elements, are highlighted in blue. Additionally, blue tones are also used for Nike branding on the white tongues. The tongue areas also feature white lace ties.
The white underlays in the upper of the shoe are made entirely with recycled polyester, while the outsoles are made with 10% Nike Grind material. The brand explains its revolutionary Nike Grind as follows:
“Nike Grind is a collection of recycled materials from Nike manufacturing offcuts, unsellable products and worn-out sneakers. Instead of letting these materials go to waste, they are collected and transformed into new materials for use by Nike and its partners who share our vision of zero waste.
Continuing, the mudguard and midfoot area are grey. The insoles, colored bright green, are stamped with Nike’s Circularity design and “Terrascape” lettering can be seen alongside. The inspiration for the Circularity design is declared by Nike as follows:
“Inspired by Global Fashion Agenda, we created Circularity: Guiding the Future of Design. The guide and its companion manual share principles that support a universal call to action for our industry: we all need to come together and have a more positive impact on our planet. »
The TPU wraps completely around the shoe, which is placed above a speckled midsole to complete the design. This midsole is equipped with the Air unit, which is prominent on the heel from the tiny semi-translucent window added below.
Interested buyers are encouraged to stay tuned to Nike’s official site for further updates and more details on the shoes arriving. The Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus “UNC” version will soon be available on the brand’s website for $185 a pair.
