Nike is celebrating the Air Max 98’s 20th anniversary this year with some very eye-catching renditions, including a reissue of the famed “Gundam” colorway. This time around, the Swoosh has taken the wraps off a new variant and it’s sure to turn heads. The upcoming “Thunder Blue” option is draped in a denim-like construction with dark blue tones. Moreover, the shoe sits atop a crisp white midsole for a sleek contrast.

Of course, the details on these creps far outweigh the grandeur of the colorway. Miniature Swooshes are emblazoned on the uppers alongside a red check on the middle panels and tongue portions. Not to mention, textured black patches are observed on the shoe as well.

Release details are still pending for the Nike Air Max 98 “Thunder Blue,” but as you wait, let us know your thoughts on these babies.
