Nike Air Max 98 “La Mezcla”

A melting pot of races, ethnicities, and cultures, Serrano wished to highlight the key component that makes the Big Apple what it is today: its population. Reflecting this sentiment is the shoe’s gradient upper, comprised of different skin tones. Dashes of mint green found on the Swooshes, the tongue logo and the laces on one side is a tribute to the Statue of Liberty, complemented by a grey cracked leather mudguard — a reference to NYC’s urban streets. These will release globally in April. –HB

The latest iteration boasts a futuristic look with its lab-white base color and the translucent Air unit. Abstract-shaped python skin overlays in Warhol-inspired green, red, yellow and pink are scattered across the uppers, while hits of black on the heel strap and the laces, and a green-outlined Swoosh finalize the design. These are currently only available in women’s sizing, so stay tuned for more details on the official drop date. –HB


Nike Air Max 98 “University Red”

Starting from the top, this Air Max features a white mesh upper with red leather paneling and red nubuck mudguards. The contrast two-tone look is maintained throughout the entire sneaker with red ribbon accents at the lacing system and heel pull tab, as well as a white midsole and red outsole combo. Branding arrives via tonal embroidered Air insignia at the heel and mini Swooshes on the red leather panels, while a strip of 3M reflective material traces around the entire shoe at mid-height. -HB


Nike Air Max 98 “AOP” Pack

After donning a tonal “Team Red” look, Nike‘s Air Max 98 turns up the dial with a bold “AOP” (All-Over Print) pack that’s sure to turn heads. The flashy release includes two colorways of black/white, which debuted in April, and a never-before-seen army green camo version. The black and white version features a high-contrast, geometric print across the upper with a solid black mudguard, while the camo pair opts for varying shades of army green throughout the entire upper.


Nike Air Max 98 “Team Red”

Nike makes creative use of textured leather, suede, and mesh, applying ample doses of each throughout the shoe’s upper. Silver found on the wavy divider line, lacing system and heel pull tab, not to mention the clean strip of white hitting the midsole help break up the sea of red found elsewhere. Priced at $170, these new Nike Air Max 98s are now available overseas with a stateside release expected soon. –HB


Nike Air Max 98 “UK”

Much like the recent “Gundam,” “Tour Yellow” and “Thunder Blue” releases, this brand new Nike Air Max 98 “UK” edition has since surfaced — adding on to the throwback model’s celebratory 20th year in the game. White dominates much of the shoe — landing on the mixed-material upper and midsole, while ample touches of gold feature all throughout, as can be seen on the mudguard, heel and branding. –HB


Nike Air Max 98 “Gym Red”

Adorned in a “Gym Red” colorway, the latest Air Max 98 is being released in celebration of Valentine’s Day. A tasteful blend of red and white, this new take on the fan-favorite presents a clean, accessible look. For additional, striking features, Nike’s designers have also equipped the shoe with 3M’s “reflective trimming,” allowing for a unique shine in certain lighting. Altogether, consumers are being blessed with a shoe that can be worn far beyond February. –HB
