The Air Max 98 is about to have a big year. Nike will be marking the 20th anniversary with the same scale of releases that made the AM97 such a hit last year, and one of the drops building steam for the campaign is this ‘Thunder Blue’ edition.
First seen at the start of January, the sneaker captured the imaginations of denim devotees with its indigo cotton uppers. But it’s not obvious quirks that make this sneaker a banger, it’s the subtle detailing. You wouldn’t notice if they walked past you in the street, but up close you can see the mirrored Swooshes that decorate the mid-layer and ‘NIKE’ printed end to end above the midsole.
It’s a bold look but if you can pull it off you can grab it from Overkill on February 1.
