The Nike Air Max 98 model was, as the name implies, released in 1998. The initial reception was mixed as many sneaker fans found it too reminiscent of the previous version, the Air Max 97. Nike also launched various other popular models that same year, and the '98 silhouette was quickly forgotten. The sneaker was designed by legend Sergio Lozano, and over the last couple of years the Air Max 98 has finally received the credit it deserves. It was re-released in 2014.
