The Nike Air Max 1 '86 'Big Bubble' returns in 2023. As the name suggests, the sneaker introduced itself back in 1986 and has remained under the radar since its first showing. Now, 37 years later, the silhouette returns in the OG 'Sport Red' colourway. The Nike Air Max 1 '86 'Big Bubble' will most likely be released on Air Max Day on March 28, 2023.
The Nike Air Max 1 '86 'Big Bubble' is making a comeback. The sneaker was shown before the original Air Max 1 in 1986 and gets its name from the enlarged Air Unit in the midsole. Since its first showing, the model has not been released. At the SNKRS Live Show in 2022, the 2023 variant of the sneaker was shown for the first time.
The sneaker comes in the OG 'Sport Red' colorway. The upper is made of mesh and colours white. Light grey, leather overlays are placed all over the design. The tongue features the Nike Air logo and the centre panel features the Swoosh. The enlarged Air Unit is transparent.
The sneaker comes with a custom shoe box. This shoe box has an aged look and features a cut-out Swoosh on the lid. The model will return on Air Max Day 2023. Air Max Day is celebrated annually on March 28 and honours the release of the first Air Max silhouette in 1987; the Air Max 1.
This year too, Air Max Day will be celebrated in a big way with several Air Max 1 colourways, including the Nike Air Max 1 '86 'Big Bubble'. The sneaker will most likely drop on 28 March 2023. Keep an eye on our release calendar for the latest updates.
