In 1998, Nike was riding high off the massive success of its Air Max 97 and Air Jordan 1Nike Air Vapormax Womens Mens 2 sneakers. The former became an overnight favorite amongst 1.0 sneakerheads; the latter MJ wore in 1997 Nike Air Max Thea Femme while winning his fifth NBA title (including that game he played while trying not to ralph all over Scottie Pippen's jersey). But then came the Air Max 98. In the face of high expectations for the next edition of the shoe, Nike...kind of put up a brick. The 98s weren't outright hated, but were criticized for looking too similar to the 97, despite their fresh new colorways. As a result, the 98s became one of Nike's few "forgotten" Air Max sneakers.That all changed when a skate brand from New York took a crack at the silhouette. In 2016, Supreme injected the 98s with rocket-powered hype, doing the shoes up with colors that drew from Prada Sport kicks of old. And now, twenty years after they first hit shelves, Nike is bringing Nike Air Pegasus 89 Donne back the Air Max 98s in their original colorway, known among collectors as the "Gundam" for their resemblance Nike Air Max 95 Femme to the anime character. And considering the folks buying hyped-up Nikes today are the ones who were watching Gundam back in the day, the Air Max 98s are poised to become one of the most coveted sneakers of the year. It's long overdue.
