Nike Give a Panelling Masterclass on the Air Max 98Release: TBC
Shaking things up is a new combination of materials and colours, while still respecting the layered construction of the upper. Replacing the usual mesh is ripstop nylon, shaded golden yellow. The middle layer is white synthetic, overlaid by the blue leather mudguard. And the stroke of genius? An all-white midsole, sandwiching the mudguard with white.
As for details nobody will see: a blue Swoosh on the outsole, and an alternate ‘More Air’ tongue label. Dropping soon on Nike in women’s sizes. What a tease.
