An upcoming Nike Air Max 98 is preparing to celebrate the diverse population of New York City, the latest Air Max to be unveiled from the Nike: On Air winners. Designed by Gabrielle Serrano, the model is entitled ‘La Mezcla’, which translates into ‘The Melting Pot’. Gabrielle says that the colour scale seen across the upper represents the different skin tones of the people who consider New York their home. Additional NY touches include the patch on the medial side of each shoe that notes the longitude and latitude of New York City.
We’re still waiting on official drop details from Nike but, while you wait, you can check out this video that helps to explain Gabrielle’s inspiration for her very own AM98.
