Incredible medial support

Besides superb surface traction, another excellent thing about the Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus is its support system. Loosely dubbed as "whale tail," the featured sneaker's midfoot shank delivers remarkable arch support.

Air Max Terrascape Plus equals restrictive

Footwear critics find the Air Max Terrascape Plus narrow overall. It's "extremely tight on feet," says an expert. He blames this issue on the shoe's short laces. He, however, proposes this workaround: don't use the top eyelets so that there's more shoestring length to work with.

Crafted with high-grade materials

Longwearing and premium materials make up the Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus. "Everywhere you touch, it feels quality," says an enthused sneaker pundit. Indeed, the shoe's textile-slash-synthetic upper gives off premium vibes, and that's despite its partly recycled sole unit completing the equation.

But this awesomeness breaks the bank

The saying that goes "great things come at a price" applies to the Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus. In other words, it's not the cheapest kick you can get for yourself at the list price of $185 a pair. For perspective's sake, this shoe is $35 pricier than the average MSRP of hiking-inspired sneakers.

Air Max Terrascape Plus: A win for the environment

The AM Terrascape Plus' springy sole unit, which includes the shoe's stock footbed, is speckled for a reason, and that's because it contains at least 20% recycled materials. For many, this is a welcome effort. "The recycled materials just make them that much cooler," says a non-professional reviewer.

Sneakerheads with sweaty feet beware

When it comes to ventilation, the Air Max Terrascape Plus probably shouldn't be your go-to shoe. After all, it's the receiver of comments such as "tanked the breathability test" and "they offer zero breathability."
