Supreme x Nike Air Max 98

Release Date: Spring 2016
Price: ?

Supreme is wasting no time in 2016 as far as collaborations go and it seems that we’ve gotten our first look at their next project with Nike.

After collaborating with Jordan Brand last year and releasing three different colorways of the Air Jordan 5, in 2016 they will be linking up with familiar partner Nike on a silhouette that we don’t see very often, the Nike Air Max 98. There is rumors that there will be a total of four colorways set to release later this year possibly beginning in the Spring. Two have already surfaced, one is done in grey and the other in black while both feature snakeskin detailing on the toe, mudguard and ankle.

The Nike Air Max BW Ultra is a sneaker that gets overlooked a lot by many people because there’s so many Air Max silhouettes out there that more often than not a few of them are bound to get lost in the shuffle.

Perhaps releasing a bold colorway like this University Red option that you see above will get people to notice. The classic silhouette has been upgraded with modern materials and bold colors that include University Red and Bright Crimson for a look that cannot be ignored.

Look for the Nike Air Max BW Ultra at select Nike retailers beginning next month.

Author’s Take

The Air Max BW Ultra is one of those silhouettes that just doesn’t catch my attention. I prefer other classic Air Max silhouettes like the AM 90 and the AM 1 over this.

Author’s Take

If I lived somewhere where it actually snowed or if I visited the snow more often I would definitely be interested in picking up a pair. But since I don’t then I really have no use for either of these pairs.

Author’s Take

This is my first time getting a look at the Diadora B.Elite model and I’m not too big of a fan of the model. The gum outsole would have to be the only detail that I really like. Due the the limited number of pairs I’m sure they’ll sell out pretty quick.
