It’s safe to say that the Toronto Raptors have never been more popular than they are right now, and Nike is set to cash in on the frenzy surrounding all things Raps with this ultra-timely take on the Air Max 98. We’ve seen similar color palettes on other sneakers in the past months — ranging from the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” to women’s-sized Air Max 1s — but with the 98’s continued popularity and the squad’s current standing as the darlings of the sports world, this pair is a surefire hit. White and black makes up the majority of the upper, while the team-centric accents are mostly concentrated on the throat, which features a purple mesh base, two-tone tongue badge, and red laces. Further Toronto-esque trim is present on the midfoot, toebox, and heel, thanks to more purple and red hits, which, in true Canadian fashion, are dispersed carefully as not to be too loud. Down below, a white midsole, red Air Max unit, and colorful outsole complete the look. No matter if you’ve been a Raptors fan since the days of Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady or you’re more of the Kawhi Leonard era, you’re sure to love these Nike shoes, and you can look for them to release soon at the retailers listed below for $160 USD.
