Nike Air Max 98 Gundam Release Date Sneaker Freaker 2

Nike Push Back the Air Max 98's Retro Return

Date: January 17 2018

By: Matt Williams


It looks like we'll need to wait a little longer until the Air Max 98 makes its grand comeback. Arkansas retailer Rock City Kicks, who were originally slated to drop the 'Gundam' AM98 on January 18, have changed the release date to February 24.

The 'Tour Yellow' colourway, which was also poised to drop on the 18th at RCK, has since been removed from their webshop altogether, suggesting it will be released even further down the track.

Across the pond, Danish sneaker spot STOY have announced they will be dropping the Gundams on January 26, which, while later than the original January 18 release date, is at least a little easier to stomach.

Whether this means different release dates for different regions or the entire global release will be pushed back remains to be seen, but we'll keep you updated with the official word from the Swoosh.
