Fresh off of the revelation that there’s two more Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 colorways in the works, today we get a look at official photos of the “Sail” look featuring a bold twist of snakeskin texture wrapping around the side panels. Supreme has always managed to garner attention with their Nike Sportswear collaborations as the brand seemingly goes on and off, alternating between some of the more iconic silhouettes in the brand’s arsenal (think the Air Force 1, Foamposite, Jordan 5) and lesser-known varieties (GTS, SB 94). The Nike Air Max 98 probably occupies somewhat of a middle-ground. Yes, the shoe is a member of Nike’s illustrious flagship visual air imprint, but rarely sees a retro and lives in the shadow of the AM90, AM95, and even the AM97 to some extent. But leave it up to Supreme to make a lesser known offering a must-have, as the brand’s adept eye for design manages to include premium materials like synthetic snakeskin atop an interesting color palette of Sail/Metallic Silver-Varsity Red. Still no word yet on a release date, but you can be on the lookout for Supreme’s latest NSW collaboration to arrive in the near future.
