With this year being the 20th Anniversary of the Air Max 98 it’s hardly surprising that Nike have unveiled an impressive bunch of OG colourways alongside all-new styles. More than 8 were released since January, many instantly selling-out including the hugely popular ‘Gundam‘.
If, like many of us, you can’t get enough of this old-school Air Max, you’ll want to put aside some sneaker funds for the next few months. Here we take a closer look at 5 upcoming styles which are guaranteed to be sought-after. Leave us a comment and let us know your favourite below.

Nike Air Max 98 Snakeskin (AO9380-100)
Release Date: 12th April
The last Air Max 98 to receive the snakeskin treatment arrived in the form of that Supreme collaboration – arguably the best colourway of all time. That said, this beige crafted silhouette is surely going to sellout quickly. That lux material extends across the mudguard whilst hits of off-white compliment to the Air Unit and nylon upper.
Nike Air Max 98 Igloo (AH6799-105)
Release Date: 20th April
Ice-cold hits of turquoise blue feature against this cream colourway. It’s a “women’s exclusive” but with unisex appeal, that surely won’t stop guys from copping. All the classic AM98 details feature from the mini-Swoosh on the sidewall to that unique integrated lacing system.
Nike Air Max 98 South Beach (640744-005)
Release Date: May 10th
The neon-lit bars of Miami South Beach provide the inspiration for this summer-ready release. Hits of ‘kinetic green‘ are balanced out by a grey and navy with very subtle pink markings throughout. This cosmic colourway was made for the hotter months. It’s one of the most vibrant styles yet, launching alongside other Air Maxs as part of the wider ‘South Beach‘ Pack.
Nike Air Max 98 Total Crimson (640744-006)
Release Date: Unknown
Another head-turning colourway is characterised by that fiery crimson shade which is stamped to the Air Unit as well as the lacing and branding. It manages to remain somewhat understated thanks to the grey coloured upper. This looks about as iconic as it gets, a blast from the past which takes you right back to the 90s.
Nike Air Max 98 Desert Camo
Release Date: Unknown
Rumours would suggest a release for this camo-crafted silhouette as soon as April but Nike is yet to officially confirm. The sandy colourway and gum outsole further accents that military theme. And with a canvas material utilised for the mudguard instead of the conventional leather, this shoe is totally unique compared with others in the 2018 range.
