      Back in the mid ’90s, Nike Air Max cushioning was in the midst of a rapid evolution. Sneaker designs were progressing quickly, with the Air Max 95 and Air Max 97 becoming the industry’s aspiration for footwear perfection. The Air Max 98 has always played somewhat of a second fiddle to its predecessors, however. The younger sibling to the Air Max 97, the AM98 was built on the same Nike Air-Sole, but lacked the smooth, Adidas ZX 750 Femme undulating lines of the 97. There were still some wavy lines, but there were also stripes and patches that chopped up the shoe into different sections. The 98 just didn’t flow as well as the 97. Regardless, it’s worth noting that the AM98 released in plenty of eye-catching colorways, many of which will be returning in 2018. Here’s a look back at some of the highlights from 1998.

      Designed by Sergio Lozano, the same man responsible for the Air Max 95, the AM98 was touted as the best Nike running shoe available. An anatomically designed, dual-pressure, full-length Air-Sole unit with a lateral crash pad system cushioned and guided the foot through each step, while a full-length air bag absorbed the punishment. Featuring synthetic leather and a mesh upper, there was an overlay strapping system for fit and support, a sculpted polyurethane Adidas Adilette Slides Donna midsole, and a BRS 1000 Nike Regrind outsole. If the Air-Sole unit looks similar to that of the AM97, that’s because it is. The tooling of the Air Max 97 was carried over and used for the 98.

      Though Air Max running shoes are rarely taken seriously by hard-core runners, the AM98 was definitely comfortable. One of the main issues was the lack of arch support in the shoe – it wasn’t designed with the overpronator in mind. Few runners were training for marathons in them, but they were perfectly fine for shorter runs.

      For sportswewar catalog Eastbay, the Air Max 98 debuted in the 1998 February edition (which would have been sent out in January). The men’s and women’s versions retailed for $149.99, which was the same price as the AM97 a year earlier. There was a cement/maize/obsidian colorway for men, and a white/maize/ultramarine Nike Air Max 90 Mujer colorway for women. A grey/citron/obsidian version also was available for kids, but with a modified Air Max 95 sole. The tooling for a full-length Air-Sole was most likely not available for the grade school (aka GS) model at the time, but it’s an interesting and possibly subtle nod to Lozano the designer, since the same groundbreaking sole was featured on his Nike Air Max 90 Mens White most famous runner, the Air Max 95.

      Beginning in the early Fall, the debut colors of the AM98 started showing up in the Eastbay sale section. This was not necessarily surprising in the 90’s, as plenty of iconic sneakers went on sale due to high price tags and overproduction. Just a few months earlier, the Air Max 97 was on sale as well. In the basketball section, it wasn’t surprising to see some of the most popular Air Jordans of all time at a reduced price – sometimes for Adidas Stan Smith Femme almost half off. It didn’t help the allure of the AM98, however, as once the bright red sale bubble appeared, it almost always made a style less desirable.

      By the fall, Nike was already pushing another Air Max runner, now known as the Air Max 98 TL. This model had an updated full-length visible Air-Sole, along with a sculpted Phylon midsole. This AM98 TL was Adidas ZX Flux Femme extremely comfortable and stylish, and the first Air Max 98 was quickly forgotten. Incredibly, the Air Max 98 TL has yet to retro.

      Besides the TL, Nike debuted the Air Max Plus, which featured a new Tuned Air technology. The Tuned Air pillars in the heel produced maximum cushioning and arch support for anyone who overpronated. Besides the AM98 TL and Air Max Plus, there was already consumer demand for an Air Max 95 retro. The AM95 also returned in the fall of ’98 in updated and Nike Air Huarache Dámské highly coveted colors.

      There are some general guidelines Nike employs when deciding to retro a sneaker: the shoe should be approaching or celebrating a milestone anniversary. The shoe should be cost-efficient to reproduce. The shoe should have a cult following. And the shoe should have changed the game. That final rule may not apply in the case of the Air Adidas Gazelle Femme Max 98, as there was not much groundbreaking about it.

      The fact that Nike used the same visible Air-Sole on the AM98 as they did on the AM97 perhaps displayed a lack of creativity. Or, perhaps they had just designed the best possible sole a year earlier, and it was worth adding to new silhouettes (attention: VaporMax fans). Regardless, the Air Max 98 will be seen a lot in 2018, and not many people are complaining.

      Designed by Sergio Lozano, the same man responsible for the Air Max 95, the AM98 was touted as the best Nike running shoe available. An anatomically designed, dual-pressure, full-length Air-Sole unit with a lateral crash pad system cushioned and guided the foot through each step, while a full-length air bag Adidas Superstar Mujer absorbed the punishment. Featuring synthetic leather and a mesh upper, there was an overlay strapping system for fit and support, a sculpted polyurethane midsole, and a BRS 1000 Nike Regrind outsole. If the Air-Sole unit looks similar to that of the AM97, that’s because it is. The tooling of the Air Max 97 was carried over and used for the 98.

      Though Air Max running shoes are rarely taken seriously by hard-core runners, the AM98 was definitely comfortable. One Nike Air Vapormax Womens of the main issues was the lack of arch support in the shoe – it wasn’t designed with the overpronator in mind. Few runners were training for marathons in them, but they were perfectly fine for shorter runs.

      For sportswewar catalog Eastbay, the Air Max 98 debuted in the 1998 February edition (which would have been sent out in January). The men’s and women’s versions retailed Nike Air Max 270 Femme for $149.99, which was the same price as the AM97 a year earlier. There was a cement/maize/obsidian colorway for men, and a white/maize/ultramarine colorway for women. A grey/citron/obsidian version also was available for kids, but with a modified Air Max 95 sole. The tooling for a full-length Air-Sole was most likely not available for the grade school (aka GS) model at the time, but it’s an interesting and possibly subtle nod to Lozano the designer, since the same groundbreaking sole was featured on his most famous runner, the Air Max 95.

      Beginning in the Nike Air Max 270 Femme early Fall, the debut colors of the AM98 started showing up in the Eastbay sale section. This was not necessarily surprising in the 90’s, as plenty of iconic sneakers went on sale due to high price tags and overproduction. Just a few months earlier, the Air Max 97 was on sale as well. In the basketball section, it wasn’t surprising to see some of the most popular Air Jordans of all time at a reduced price – sometimes for almost half off. It didn’t help the allure of the AM98, however, as once the bright red sale bubble appeared, it almost always made a style less desirable.

      By the fall, Nike was already pushing another Air Max runner, now known as the Air Max 98 TL. This model had an updated full-length visible Air-Sole, along with a sculpted Phylon midsole. This AM98 TL was extremely comfortable and stylish, and the first Air Max 98 was quickly forgotten. Incredibly, the Air Max 98 TL has yet to retro.

      Besides the TL, Nike debuted the Air Max Plus, which featured a new Tuned Air technology. The Tuned Air pillars in the heel produced Adidas Eqt Support Adv Feminino maximum cushioning and arch support for anyone who overpronated. Besides the AM98 TL and Air Max Plus, there was already consumer demand for an Air Max 95 retro. The AM95 also returned in the fall of ’98 in updated and highly coveted colors.

      There are some general guidelines Nike employs when deciding to retro a sneaker: the shoe should be approaching or celebrating a milestone anniversary. The shoe should be cost-efficient Nike Air Max Thea Femme to reproduce. The shoe should have a cult following. And the shoe should have changed the game. That final rule may not apply in the case of the Air Max 98, as there was not much groundbreaking about it.

      The fact that Nike used the same visible Air-Sole on the AM98 as they did on the AM97 perhaps displayed a lack of creativity. Or, perhaps they had just designed the best possible sole a year earlier, and it was worth adding to new silhouettes (attention: VaporMax fans). Regardless, the Air Max 98 will be seen a lot in 2018, and not many people are complaining.

      Despite the trash-talking efforts of a certain US president, Nike’s stock is currently riding high, and a roster of revamped classics and hard-to-find collaborations has kept things buoyant in terms of credibility within wider sneaker culture and Asics Gel Lyte 3 Damen off-the-shelf sales.

      First up, it has been designed to tick a lot of sustainable boxes. For a shoe which is for Adidas Stan Smith Womens the most part synthetic, its environmental impact appears to have been largely mitigated – Nike claims that the 720 comprises more than 70 per cent recycled manufactured waste, and that in production of its Air shoes some 95 per cent of waste is recycled, and that all facilities producing them in the US will be powered only by renewable energy by 2019.

      The Air unit has its origins back in 1978 – the Nike Tailwind was a pro-focused running shoe which featured small, gas-filled polyurethane bags embedded in the sole, an innovation produced by former Nasa engineer M Frank Rudy, who was repurposing his work in blow-moulding astronaut helmets from hard plastic. The Air unit remained a niche, runner-only product for premium, specialist Nike Cortez Womens shoes, but it would become instrumental Adidas Gazelle Dámské in helping Nike to dominate professional basketball – and by extension, capture its huge fan base.

      NBA players had been wearing the Nike Blazer and Bruin since 1972, but the Air Force 1 – with a larger air unit than the Tailwind – was in 1982 given to six players (Moses Malone, Michael Cooper, Bobby Jones, Calvin Natt, Mychal Thompson and Jamal Wilkes), who ensured its success on- and off-court. The Air Force 1 was retired in 1984, but then reissued in 1986 as a street shoe – it went on to be the world’s best-selling sneaker. On court, meanwhile, Michael Jordan’s first shoe, the Air Jordan was introduced in 1984, and the Air unit, well, exploded.

      One legend has it that the NBA were constantly fining Jordan, as his gaudy kicks contravened the then-strict courtside colour regulations for footwear. Supposedly, Nike paid the fines each time, smartly calculating that the exposure far outweighed any fee imposed by the NBA.

      Fast Nike Internationalist Femme forward to 1987, and the Air unit graduated from hidden marvel to being visible on the sides via a clear plastic window in the Air Max (now known as the Air Max 1). Designed in 1987 by architect-turned-shoe-creator Tinker Hatfield, it was inspired by the inside-out aesthetics of the Pompidou Centre (in fact, a commemorative Pompidou AM1 dropped just last week).

      Pitched at urban runners, it was part of Nike’s strategy to expand its dominance beyond the basketball court and on to the street – and it worked. The shoe has been a staple of the Nike lineup for more than 30 years, spawning a family of more than distinct 70 iterations of Air Max, each with a correspondingly more visible bubble.

      Interestingly, one successor, the Air Max 97, was a failure at the time – the Bullet Train-inspired runner took the air bubbles from just the heel and wrapped them around most of the sole. Sadly, it was perhaps too revolutionary, and was removed from the lineup less than a year later, due to a sluggish reception – except, inexplicably, Asics Gel Lyte 3 Donna in Italy, where the “Silver Bullet” became a cult classic. (Revived for its 20th anniversary, however, the 97 seems to have found its audience – indeed, it’s so prolific, many sneakerheads Adidas Superstar Femme Rose now consider it “rinsed”.)

      It may not have been a single bubble, but the idea stuck, and a line can be drawn directly between the 97 and the full-sole Air unit of the Air Max 2009, which took Nike closer Nike Air Vapormax Femme to its inflatable dream. It’s worth noting that the 97’s replacement, the Plus (or Tuned) 98, featured a chunky cage sole containing small Air units from toe to heel – an innovation that has led to 2017’s VapourMax, which covered the entire sole in uncaged bubbles, meaning the Air unit became the sole itself. All of which leads us to Nike’s next step in Air technology – a seemingly single, foot-sized, uncaged loop of air.

      In some respects, 1987 was a great year for entertainment and culture. Aretha Franklin became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Simpsons made its first television appearance, Michael Jackson released Bad and Nike released the inaugural Air Max sneaker, the Air Max 1. These moments would all go on to be hugely influential and each one’s revolutionary character lives on today.

      For Nike, the Air Max 1 went down in history as a pivotal and innovative design that elevated the Nike Air Max Jewell Femme brand when they needed it most. Although the story is part of sneaker lore, its 30th birthday—also known as Air Max Day—is approaching and as Nike dedicates an entire month to its celebration with more releases than we can keep track of, we’re taking a look back at how the Air Max revolution started.

      It’s a story that can’t be told without first introducing renowned designer Tinker Hatfield. In 1981, long before becoming sneaker industry royalty, Nike hired Hatfield as a corporate architect to design buildings on the brand’s Oregon campus. It wasn’t until four years later, in 1985, that he would begin designing footwear upon request. He applied his architectural background to sneaker design and it didn’t take long for him to impart a rebellious spirit into the recently struggling brand. “I began working on a renegade set of shoes Adidas Gazelle Mujer that were not part of a design brief or marketing drive,” he explains, referencing what would become the very first Air Max sneaker.

      The ‘80s started well for Nike, they’d acquired 50% market share in the U.S. athletic shoe market and were on track to become a one billion dollar company. However, midway through the decade, the competition was creeping up on them. Bright colors, daring patterns and bold neons embellished the era, and Nike needed something more striking. Nike’s Cortez, Waffle Racer and Tailwind had proved popular in the past but they didn’t capture the experimental nature of the time. Hatfield saw the importance of risk taking and a trip to Paris would provide the catalyst for a brightly burning idea…

      Nike’s Air technology Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Womens wasn’t new; it was developed by former NASA engineer Frank Rudy and introduced in the Air Tailwind Nike Roshe Run Hombre in 1978. Air replaced traditional molded EVA soles with gas filled urethane pouches. However, it was the consensus that as performance technology the pouches ought to be felt and not seen. That was until Hatfield came along.

      It wasn’t another sneaker or even a fashion concept that planted the idea to expose the Air-cushioned sole in Hatfield’s mind, it was a controversial building in Paris that many considered an eyesore. “I don’t know if I was thinking, well now I’m going to design a shoe based off of this,” Hatfield said in the documentary series Respect the Architects. “I just remember being super influenced by it and having my architectural senses turned upside down.” He’s referring to the Centre Georges Pompidou, a building Adidas Superstar Mujer Blancas design that took all its functional and structural elements and placed them on the outside for all to Nike Air Max 270 Damen see. Even today, its irregularity remains impossible to miss amongst Paris’ traditional architecture. Hatfield believes that had he not seen the building he may never have suggested revealing the air pouch: “I thought let’s make the bag a little bit wider, make sure it’s stable, but then let’s go ahead and remove part of the midsole so we can actually see it.”

      Nike had been trying to make its air technology smaller, increasing its size and displaying it was a provocative idea — the brand feared the transparent display would look structurally weak and easily punctured. In the Netflix documentary series Abstract: The Art of Design, Hatfield describes the reaction to early Air Max sketches: “It was widely discussed that I had pushed Nike Air Pegasus 89 Dames it too far. People were trying to get us fired.” Fortunately, Hatfield had the confidence to challenge the Adidas Eqt Support Adv Mujer opposition with support from David Forland, Nike’s Director of Cushioning Innovation. However, while Hatfield had complete confidence in the integrity of his design, no one could have predicted the Air Max 1’s lasting impact.
