Nike Unveils the Air Max Sunder Gore-Tex for Spring 2025

Yesterday, Nike held their second SNKRS Showcase event, taking to their livestream platform on the SNKRS app to unveil a wide range of upcoming new releases and retro styles. After the Air Max Sunder was first teased during the original showcase last Fall, this week they showed off a new Gore-Tex lined version of the runner, coming in Spring 2025.

Nike’s SNKRS Showcase is becoming an annual event for the brand. The first livestream was held in Fall 2023, and showed us early looks at an assortment of releases for the end of last year and up to Summer 2024. The event gave us our introduction to the Cult Classics series, which will continue through this year and into 2025, as well as early looks at new retro styles returning to the brand’s catalog in the coming months. The fan-favorite of these was the Air Max Sunder, a chunky runner from 1999 that features a zippered shroud and conforming inner booty. Now, during this week’s showcase, they unveiled a new Gore-Tex version of the shoe for 2025.

Nike’s Air Max family has introduced us to a number of wild silhouettes over the years, most of which come from the late-’90s and early ’00s. This year, the brand is poised to release the Sunder, a 1999 model that has been making the rounds online in recent years which likely prompted the shoe’s first wide rerelease. In addition to the in-line colors coming later this Fall, Nike showed off a new Gore-Tex pack for Spring 2025. The shoes feature the same zippered shroud on the upper, replacing the inner booty with a waterproof version. Three colors were shown during their SNKRS Showcase event, in purple, red, and all-black color palettes.


Nike’s new Gore-Tex-lined version of their retro Air Max Sunder has not been given a set release date yet, but has been scheduled to arrive sometime in Spring 2025. Shown in three colors during the SNKRS Showcase, purple, red, and black, pairs will likely be available from both Nike and select retailers, with an expected price tag around $200. Check out the press release photos from the Swoosh for a better look at all three colors, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news, like the return of the “Escape” Air Force 1 next Spring.
