How long will the Nike Air Max 98 stick around for in its retro form? There are certain Air Max models that are allowed to perpetually stick around in the Nike Sportswear range but we have a feeling that the ’98 isn’t destined to be one of those. Which means that after the 2014 colorways have come and gone, it might be a little tough to get your hands on/feet in a pair. Take a look a look at a couple of the newly released Nike Air Max 98 pairs that are floating around at the moment and then grab these now from Concepts.

Sneaker News NINE@NINE: Underrated Air Max Models

Tonight, we introduce our new Sneaker News NINE@NINE segment, and what better topic to kick off with than the ongoing Air Max celebration. With March 26th marking the 27th anniversary of the Nike Air Max 1, Nike will commemorate the birth of Max Air tomorrow with a special Volt-midsoled release. In preparation for ‘Air Max Day’, Nike took us back to 1987 and gave a bit of a history lesson with all the major pairs from Tinker Hatfield’s first golden era running designs all the way up through the recently introduced Flyknit Air Max.

That list certainly touched on most of the biggest releases from Nike’s flagship running series, but hardcore sneakerheads would immediately see a compilation like that as an opportunity to think back on some of the more obscure pairs as well. So that’s our goal here – to go back over the timeline and fill in some of the less common pairs that represent fresh retro opportunities we’d love to see return alongside the recurring cornerstones.

The Nike Air Max 98 is back. Their return comes at a perfect time considering that the international Air Max day that Nike Sportswear has planned is right around the corner. The retro has an asterisk on it at this point, as we’ve only seen overseas stores reporting stock, but we’re hoping that this isn’t one of those retros that gets relegated to regions beyond our own. Up first for the resurrected Nike Air Max model is this white/team orange/metallic silver version. Continue reading for a detailed look at this brand new Nike Air Max 98 pair and watch for them now at spots like Foot Patrol.

The model has traditionally rested a tier or two below the likes of the 1/90/95/97 quarter as far as retro obsession, but that’s not to say it’s one without its fans.

Classics Revisited: Nike Air Max ’98 (1998)

nike air max 1998 Classics Revisited: Nike Air Max 98 (1998)


Believe it or not, 1998 might be one of the best years of Air Max in Nike’s history. Aside from the introduction of Tuned Air with the Nike Air Max Plus, there was a wide variety of can’t-miss models that dropped in ’98; including the Air Max ’98 (tonight’s focus of Classics Revisited), there was another ’97-based model also referred to as the Air Max ’98, the Air Max Tailwind III, the Air Max Triax Plus, a plethora of flagship model re-designs like the Triax, Perseus, and Structure, and who can forget the first official Retro of the Air Max ’95? Looking back, 1998 deserves much more respect than it gets, so let’s take a look at the highest priced and possibly hardest-to-find model of that year.

The Nike Air Max ’98 picked up on the full-length Max Air technology that debuted with the Air Max ’97, using a synthetic leather and mesh upper for weight reduction. The external lace overlay system (the two lace loops at the forefoot) provided optimal fit, while the Max Air cushion we alluded to before utilized the BRS 1000 Nike Regrind outsole. A swift look at original colorways: the most recognized of the bunch is likely the Royal/Red colorway (above) that is commonly referred to as the ‘Gundam’ for its resemblance to the protagonist of the Gundam series. A slew of others followed that year, like the popular ‘Atlantic Blue’ and Navy/Yellow, and again in 2000 in two Cool Grey-based releases and even a sick JD Sports Exclusive. We’ve got a quick overview of the Air Max ’98 releases below – which of the bunch can you call your own?
