Nike has enjoyed flipping some of their most classic Air Max models inside-out this summer, and now the Air Max 98 is set to join the Air Max 1 in showing its inner workings. Combining black, grey, and beige, these 98s feature unique details like exposed foam edges, a visible production tag on the tongue, and a soft beige midfoot overlay that hangs loosely over the grey suede mudguard to emphasize the reversed look. The branding is altered as well, with the midfoot/toebox Swooshes and the heel’s text hit appearing as simple outlines to indicate that you’re just looking at what’s holding the famous logos together. Down below, the midsole, outsole, and Air Max unit have been left intact however, as the Swoosh Brand hasn’t figured out a way to evert cushioning systems just yet. Grab a detailed look at these bold new Nike shoes below, and expect a release on Nike.com later this summer with a bumped-up retail price of $180 USD.
