Nike Air Max 98 Gundam was initially returning worldwide last month but that was only exclusive to overseas markets. Given that the shoe will be celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, we can be fairly certain that the rumours are true — and now another couple of photos have turned up online, which does nothing but strengthen out faith. Nike has finally revealed the U.S. release date for this classic colorway and it’s officially coming back next week. The original red/blue/white composition, which has been dubbed the “Gundam” colorway for its semblance to the anime’s protagonist, is coming back for the first time since its debut in 1998. 2018 will mark the 20th anniversary of the model, and if this year’s Air Max 97 releases are any indication, it should be a much bigger year for the 98.
