Back in the mid ’90s, Nike Air Max cushioning was in the midst of a rapid evolution. Sneaker designs were progressing quickly, with the Air Max 95 and Air Max 97 becoming the industry’s aspiration for footwear perfection. The Air Max 98 has always played somewhat of a second fiddle to its predecessors, however. The younger Nike Air Vapormax Femme sibling to the Air Max 97, the AM98 was built on the same Nike Air-Sole, but lacked the smooth, undulating lines of the 97. There were still some wavy lines, but there were also stripes and patches that chopped up the shoe into different sections. The 98 just didn’t flow as well as the 97. Regardless, it’s worth noting that the AM98 released in plenty of eye-catching colorways, many of which will be returning in 2018. Here’s a look back at some of the highlights from 1998.

Designed by Nike Air Max 2016 Dámské Sergio Lozano, the same man responsible for the Air Max 95, the AM98 was touted as the best Nike running shoe available. An anatomically designed, dual-pressure, full-length Air-Sole unit with a lateral crash pad system cushioned and guided the foot through each step, while a full-length air bag absorbed the punishment. Featuring synthetic leather Nike Cortez Mujer and a mesh upper, there was an overlay strapping system for fit and support, a sculpted polyurethane midsole, and a BRS 1000 Nike Regrind outsole. If the Air-Sole unit looks similar to that of the AM97, that’s because it is. The tooling of the Air Max 97 was carried over and used for the 98.

For sportswewar catalog Eastbay, the Air Max 98 debuted in the 1998 February edition (which would have been sent out in January). The men’s and women’s versions retailed for $149.99, which was the same price as the AM97 a year earlier. There was a cement/maize/obsidian colorway for men, and a white/maize/ultramarine colorway for women. A grey/citron/obsidian version also was available Nike Air Max 720 Womens for kids, but with a modified Air Max 95 sole. The tooling for a full-length Air-Sole was most likely not available for the grade school (aka GS) model at the time, but it’s an interesting and possibly subtle nod to Lozano the designer, since the same groundbreaking sole was featured on his most famous runner, the Air Max 95.

In April, a Nike Air Force 1 Dame metallic silver/Atlantic blue/black/white version would release for men, and a white/light sage/mid navy/tidal blue version released for women. For kids, a white/orange/black/maize released for boys, and a white/ice/twilight blue came out for girls in April as well.

Beginning in the early Fall, the debut colors of the AM98 started showing up in the Eastbay sale section. This was not necessarily surprising in the 90’s, as plenty of iconic sneakers went on sale due to high price tags and overproduction. Just a few months earlier, the Air Max 97 was on sale as well. In the basketball section, it wasn’t surprising to see some of the most popular Air Jordans of all time at a reduced price – sometimes for almost half off. It didn’t help the allure of the AM98, however, as once the bright red sale bubble appeared, it almost always made Nike Cortez Womens a style less desirable.
