To pay tribute to the latest engineer, Nike will also be releasing another special edition Air Max Plus. The shoe features a Neon Green mesh base with Blue leather mudguards and heels. It comes with special details such as blueprint insoles showing off the technology artwork with his signature, EST. 1998 printed on the lateral Air unit, and his name printed on the laces tips. An air pressure hangtag atop a White midsole and Gum rubber outsole completes the design.
