Editor’s Notes: Nike's La Requin theme returns to the Air Max Plus this year, as the Swoosh is releasing two new colorways of the Air Max sneaker this week. The brand points out that La Requin is what the Air Max Plus is referred to in Paris, a term which translates to "shark." Many sneakerheads insist that the design elements of the Air Max Plus resemble the sea creature.

The 2019 Air Max Plus La Requin is optioned in two colorways of white and black, each with components that point to the shark nickname. For example, the Swoosh alongside is extended to mimic a dorsal fin, while the shark jaw logo has been redesigned on the tongue. Lastly, graphics referencing a shark's body are implemented throughout.

Nike is scheduled to release the Air Max Plus La Requin iterations on Thursday, March 7.
