With only a few hours left in Air Max Day, NikeLab has officially announced its upcoming Supreme x Air Max 98 collaboration.
Taking to Instagram, NikeLab posted an overhead photo as well as a shot of the back heel of the "Red" colorway which highlights the Supreme branding on the pull tabs and its popular "World Famous" slogan atop the patent leather. The caption stopped short of announcing an official release date, but details should be forthcoming shortly. As with most Supreme x Nike collaborations, expect these to be one of the more difficult cops of the year.
Introducing the NikeLab Air Max 98 x Supreme. From the era that birthed a local skate institution on Lafayette St., the Air Max 98 returns boasting Supreme’s signature colors. The World Famous brand also implements 360-degree reflective piping above patent leather and a color blocking scheme never before used on the Air Max 98, revamping the shoe through a modern design lens. Coming soon.

NikeLab Air Max 98 x Supreme. Iconic Air Max design language on the tongue and synthetic mesh on the collar and upper remain as an ode to the shoe’s original construction. Supreme’s influence on the updated classic shines brightest through the patent leather along the rand and mudguard. Coming soon.
