This year’s holiday season isn’t officially over yet, but many consumers – especially those in relationships – may already be gift-planning for 2020. Nike seems (unofficially) prepared for the looming Valentine’s Day as it’s recently unveiled a pink and red colorway for the Air Max 98. The upcoming hot and vivid palette resembles the ones found on the Emotionally Unavailable x Air Force 1 High from March or the Girls’ Air Jordan 5 “Valentine’s Day” from 2013. Free of chenille Swooshes and heart-shaped heel graphics, the ’98 model’s upcoming release dons similar romance-associated hues found on previous Valentine’s Day-edition Air Force 1s and SB Dunks from Beaverton. From upper to outsole, the runner silhouette is outfitted in: a vibrant red textile; a white mid-layer; a punchy coral mudguard; a plain midsole; a gum-colored visible Air unit; and an eye-catching cherry bottom. No official release date has been announced yet, but you can bet that this pair will be available on Nike.com as the most romantic day of the year inches closer. For now, grab a detailed look at the shoe here below and start saving up some money for them now.
