Happy Longtaitou Festival!

At this point, we've all become accustomed to Chinese New Year-inspired sneakers, but for the first time ever, Nike is celebrating China's Longtaitou Festival with a very special Nike Air Max Plus. Arriving on the silhouette's 25th anniversary, we've never seen anything quite like this, so make sure you read on as Ox Street unpack every single detail worth mentioning. You're going to need a minute, because there's quite a lot to talk about there!

Offered in a neoprene upper, it fades from blue to pink as a nod to the day's vibrant colors. A see-through cage embraces the upper, while the mudguard is decked out in a premium tan leather construction. The Air Max Plus' signature hexagonal logos make their way to the tongue and heel, and for a look that is sure to turn heads wherever you go, the black rope laces wrap around the entire sneaker.

Underfoot, you'll find a crisp white TN Air Max midsole, and this is accented with neon green bubbles and a dash of gum rubber. To make this pair even more special, characters are printed across both insoles with well-wishes, and the shoe also comes with four metallic aglets complete with a series of red Swooshes as a nod to the traditional Chinese color for luck.

More info is set to be revealed very soon, so if you want the Nike Air Max Plus "Longtaitou Festival" in your collection, keep it locked right here for all of the latest. Let us know what you think of this upcoming colorway, and in related news, Nike recently teased the Air Max Pulse for Air Max Day 2023!
