The “Gundam” colorway arrives in a primarily white, blue, and red colorway reminiscent of the RX-78-2 from the popular Gundam sci-fi series.

Editor’s Notes: With the Air Max 98’s 20th anniversary approaching, Nike is relaunching the silhouette in the classic “Gundam” colorway. Might these prove as successful as last year’s revitalized Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet”? Don’t bet against it.

Look out for the sneaker dropping January 26 for a price of $160. Until then, have a browse of the gallery above for a closer look at the “Gundam” colorway and flip through the images below for the “Fearless 90s” release.

As always, stay posted for further updates.
