The Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker made a production run in 1986 featuring a larger Air Max unit in the heel before we got the Air Max 1 of today a year later in 1987. The sneaker is rumored to return in its OG colorway, using white mesh on the base of the upper with grey and red suede on the overlays.
The Nike Air Max 1 ’86 “Big Bubble” is scheduled to drop in Spring 2023 via SNKRS and at select retailers. Check out the photos of the OG pair below alongside Tinker’s sketches and the print ad for the sneaker.
