What's the story behind the Air Max 98?

While the other Air Max models, such as the 95 or the AM 1 became instant classics, the Air Max 98 had a somewhat harder time.

Sergio Lozano, who had already designed the AM 95, was once again in charge here. When comparing the two sneakers, you won't immediately find any similarities, but at second glance you will. Here, too, the upper was fitted with lines inspired by rocks sculpted and worn by natural water sources; this was already the case with the 95.

What colorways of the AM 98 can you buy?

The first colorway in which you could buy the Air Max 98 was the Gundam colorway - a loud colorway in blue, white and red. Later, a version in Cool Grey Volt was also released. A colorway that was reminiscent of the Air Max 95 OG. The other colorways in which the Air Max 98 was available in the year of release were the Tour Yellow and the Team Red.

After the AM 98 had been somewhat forgotten in the years that followed, it was Supreme New York who put it back on the radar. In 2016, they released a total of four colorways of the sneaker, which are now relatively affordable - the most expensive of the drop is available for less than 500 euros on StockX and co.

With the 30th anniversary, Nike brought more styles two years later.

The Air Max 98 Gundam, Tour Yellow etc. returned to retail in 2018 and can currently only be purchased on second market platforms such as Klekt or StockX. In addition to the retros, Nike also released new colorways, such as the Thunder Blue or the Cone.

Where can you buy the AM 98?

When searching, you will actually find what you are looking for. The Air Max 98 is available in various colorways at retailers such as Keller X, Snipes and Foot Locker. For new drops, you should check out chains like Snipes, Solebox or small stores like asphaltgold or 43einhalb. Of course, all colorways are also always listed in the Nike online store or in the SNKRS app.
