Nike Air Max Plus “Le Requin Pack” Inspired by The Shark

Thought to be a “Swimming Pool” release, this Nike Air Max Plus Le Requin Pack takes its inspiration from sharks.

The Nike Air Max Plus was born in 1998 and immediately drew a following all over the globe. As many adopted it, the design quickly took on different identities and nicknames, particularly recognized as “Le Requin” by many across France in particular. French for “The Shark,” the Le Requin nickname was born from the original “Hyper Blue” colorway for its gradient-colored upper that is reminiscent of a shark’s unique texture.

Now nearly two decades later, the Nike Air Max Plus arrives in a modern construction with colors and sublimated graphics directly inspired by the apex predator. The unique graphic seen throughout the upper emulates a water shadow over a shark’s body, while the White gradient running below mimics a shark’s belly.
