The Air Max 1 '86 Golf comes with an enlarged Air Unit. The outsole has received sturdy studs, which provide extra grip on the golf course. The Nike Air logo has been replaced with a Nike Golf logo on both colorways. A silver Nike emblem is placed on the tongue, with the American or European flag, different for each sneaker.

Notable details on both colorways, are the perforation holes on the toe cap. These are set in the shape of stars and hint at the flags of both teams. On the insoles are the terms 'Prestige. Tradition. Passion.' printed. The sneaker for the European team comes with a pull loop on the heel; it is missing from the U.S.A. team.
