Historically speaking, January is one of the slowest months for sneaker retail. The holiday season has passed and tax returns are yet to hit so people are good on spending and brands are much quieter than the month before. The Nike Air Max 98 “Gundam” looks to speed that up and make some noise.
The revered OG that has never been retroed runs of the steam of the AM ’97 anniversary from last year, looking to get its 20th bday party on just the same. Mixing leather and mesh on the upper, full-length Air illuminates the wavy silo by day while 3M hits pop at night.
