Comebacks are huge nowadays, with 90s kids rejoicing over the ultimate throwback of things they loved when they were younger. Boybands including the Backstreet Boys, Westlife and NSYNC, as well as British girl group Spice Girls, have reunited for ads, tv shows and even concerts. Fashion crazes like dungarees, round glasses and denim skirts are all back in the trendy list, and sneakers aren’t ones to be left behind.

And the greatest comeback of them all (in sneakerworld of course!) is that of Nike’s Air Max 98 “Gundam” Sneakers, which prove to be one of the most anticipated sneaker releases for 2018.

The Nike Air Max 98 hasn’t enjoyed much of the limelight as it was overshadowed by the flagship Air Max 97; yet it still made a mark in the industry and in sneakerheads’ minds. Its relaunch this 2018 gives it another shot at fame, which proves to be a huge success, with fans willing to pay amount higher than its price points, just for the coveted “Gundam” colorway many adored.

Pros

One would definitely feed good showing off these kicks. Not only do viewers of the anime easily recognize the Air Max 98 Gundam, but most see the resemblance of the Red, White and Blue combination with the anime character that is known not only in Asia, but worldwide. This pair is extremely eye-catching, with its vintage vibe given a rejuvenated feel to it.

Aside from the rush of memories of the anime Gundam that the pair bring back, the Nike Air Max 98 also instantly blends in with the dad sneakers that’s all the hype these days. Then technologically advanced Air soles are now the chunky soles that are great for the oversized sneakers trend, the perfect match for the track pants craze.

Cons

One thing frowned upon about the Air Max Gundam is that it’s relatively pricey, compared to a lot of pairs from the brand. For enthusiasts and collectors who have waited a long time for this pair, it’s quite small amount to pay, but non-fans understandably pick another design from lower price points. Aside from that, these shoes wouldn’t also be the best pair to give anyone with the skinny jeans-look and all-fitted style.
