Both models have air in the forefoot, so that does not distinguish between
the two models.

 
 
 

Nike Air Max Triax vs Air Max Triax Plus

Nike switched the rearfoot cushioning in the Plus a bit.  The AirMax Triax  had
an air unit forefoot that was encapsulated in Phylon, (Nikes version of
compression molded EVA), with the rear air encapsulated in PU.  PU is a bit
firmer than Phylon so the rear foot ride was somewhat firm.  The Air Max Triax
Plus included a Phylon layer over the top of the PU in the rear witht he
forefoot remaining the same.  The served to make the shoe a bit softer feeling
in the rear and there was a small loss of stability.  

If you liked the Air Max Triax (no Plus), you may like the new Air Max
International.  The International is a straight PU midsole encapsualting both
the forefoot and the rearfoot air units.

So did the older Max Triax models.  From what I understand, the Max
Triax is being replaced by the International Triax, which is the Max
Triax with a full polyurethane midsole and the visible air form the
older Air Max.  It's a firmer shoe, but should be more durable.
