For anyone who wonders why Supreme stays so relevant in an age of fly by night brands, the Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 should answer your question. The highly regarded skate brand has a penchant for smashing the game when it collaborates with the Swoosh, and this drop will be no different. The Nike Air Max line might have run out of a little steam by the time the late ’90s were upon us, so Supreme is stepping in to breathe some life back into the oft-forgotten 98 model. I rock with these for the simple fact that the branding is so minimal, putting the snakeskin leather on front street to both break necks, and to likely be the center of more than a few attempted jackings. Good thing they’re already running shoes.
No price tag or timetable for the release yet but there are murmurs these will hit for $250, and drop in mid April. Don’t hold me to that though.
