With each Nike x Supreme release, the Brand with the Red Box Logo seems to hone its technique when it comes to flipping both popular and obscure Swoosh silhouettes.
Now Supreme is set to unleash four new versions of the Air Max 98, a rather obscure member of the Air Max family. When word first hit the web that a collaborative 98 was in the works, many doubted the shoe’s authenticity, and first glimpses of the jarring snakeskin makeup were met with raised eyebrows. Even when further images were leaked, seasoned Supreme followers online were quick to collectively assert “Fufu!”
The leaks turned out to be true though and the Supreme x Air Max 98 rides on a polyurethane midsole equipped with a full-length dual pressure Air Sole unit. Red (a homage to Supreme’s box logo), black and blue iterations are kitted with a bold patent upper, while a snakeskin version rounds out the pack.
With all four colorways dropping online tomorrow, April 28, we present a look at the pack, including some of our favorite details.
