The 50 Best Euro Exclusive Nikes of All Time

26. Nike Air Max 98 "JD Sports Obsidians"

Year: 2001

The Air Max 98 is a pretty overlooked shoe. This model's chunk and resemblance to the Air Max 97 (which, with its mass appeal in Italy, had some great Euro colorways at NikeTown) meant that it hasn't had the same retro love since it released 14 years ago. JD Sports gave it a go though, with this 2001 resurrection with the killer orange hits over murky colors. There's plenty more gems in the Air Max line that have never been given the reissue love of the usual offenders and that's unlikely to change anytime soon, but some US-based connoisseurs flipped out over these at the time of release.
