Recently, photos of the Nike Air Max 98 in several variants of vintage colorways including the OG “Gundam” have been posted on the Internet what brings us to think about a possible comeback. After the popular re-release of the Nike Air Max 97 it seems totally possible that Nike brings back the ’98 silhouette which is clearly based on the AM 97!
On Air Max Day 2014, small quantities of the AM 98 silhouette were released quietly as a retro but successfully adopted by sneakerheads worldwide only after some time – it’s not easy to get hands on one of the retro pairs nowadays. Last year, Nike gave the AM98 a wider and more hyped attention with a collaboration with Supreme.
By now, we unfortunately don’t know much about a re-release of the Nike Air Max 98. But as soon as we find out more, we’ll let you know! We’re sure they’ll be available at Nike.com!
For another big comeback of a classic swoosh runner see the Tom Sachs x NikeLab Mars Yard 2.0 – it’s releasing globally in early July.
