Hype is real for the Nike Air Max 98 Gundam. Keep it locked to this page for a confirmed release date as well as a full list of stockists. Given the hype for OG colourways and footwear, you can expect this particular style to sellout upon release. The classic ‘Gundam’ AM98 takes us right back to the old school. If you’re a fan of vintage footwear, this is one silhouette not to miss!
This year sees the 30th anniversary since the very first Air Max 98 was unveiled. As such, Nike is rumoured to be launching a huge range of styles. Whilst they’ll likely be plenty of new releases, it’s the OG releases that are expected to command the most respect.
Take for example the iconic Air Max 98 ‘Gundam’. Crafted with premium material and unique detailing throughout, this silhouette is both eye-catching and vintage. Soft nylon padding sits alongside leather on the upper with a premium mudguard that travels the full length of the shoe.
Sitting underfoot is a red coloured Air Unit in the similar style as the Air Max 97. This same shade hits a mini-Swoosh which sits across the sidewall. Apart from these style cues which clearly borrow inspiration from previous releases, the Air Max 98 does feature standalone detailing. That includes a unique lacing system which features elasticated laces and a toggle pull.
The Nike Air Max 98 Gundam is scheduled to release shortly via the retailers listed.
