The Nike Air Max 98 is preparing to honour the famous Interstate 95 Highway that pretty much runs the length of the East Coast of the USA. The I-95 is just short of 2,000 miles (a tick over 3,000 kilometres) long, mostly running parallel with the Atlantic Ocean, taking motorists all the way from Maine to Florida — if they choose to travel the whole length.
The AM98 created in the highway’s honour rocks a Black, ‘Gunsmoke’ and ‘Lava Glow’ colour palette, delivered on a variety of textures across the upper. As for the specific elements inspired by the I-95, the ‘Gunsmoke’ gives off a strong bitumen vibe, while the ‘Lava Glow’ is somewhat reminiscent of the line of red tail lights that you’ll inevitably follow along certain sections of the highway — especially the visible Air unit in the midsole.
Pairs are expected to drop on January 26 alongside two similarly dedicated Air Max 95s.
