Nike retro releases allow people to relive a time in their life by grabbing a sneaker the second time around, and also introduce a previously released model to a whole new audience for the first time. The Nike Air Max 98, originally released in 1998, has always been an underground cult classic that never experienced the popularity of other Air Max models, including the Air Max 90, Air Max 95, or Air Max 97. But, there are many, many sneakerheads that are happy to see their return. They sport full-length Max-Air cushioning for superior comfort, and sweeping lines for a distinct style. For whatever reason your picking up this retro release, get them while you can in your favorite colorway now at Sneakerhead.
