Official images of the Nike Air Max 1 'Sofvi' have surfaced. The first mock-up images of the vinyl toys-inspired sneaker appeared in late 2022 and now, over six months later, Nike is showing the 'Sofvi' in all its glory. Check out the official images here and read more about the release.

Nike further expands its Air Max 1 line. Introduced in 1987, the Air Max 1 was the first Nike sneaker with a visible Air Unit. The silhouette was designed by Tinker Hatfield who was inspired by the architecture of the Centre Pompidou building in Paris. In 2023, the model is totally back and has already appeared in several colorways.

The next Air Max 1 colorway in the line-up, is the 'Sofvi'. The colorway takes its inspiration from collectible Japanese soft vinyl toys and features a 'soft' colorway. The upper combines the colours red, orange and off-white. The overlays are synthetic materials and hints at Japanese vinyl toys.

The 'Sofvi' comes with a yellowed midsole and a translucent outsole. The Nike Air logo appears on the tongue and heel. On the outsole, the Japanese translation of 'Air Max 1' is printed in the rubber. The Nike logo is also printed in Japanese on the insole. Silver Swooshes complete the colorway.

The Nike Air Max 1 'Sofvi' does not yet have an official release date. However, we can most likely expect the trainer in 2023. Check out the official images of the trainer below and keep an eye on our release calendar for the latest updates.
