Official images have arrived of one of the most interesting sneakers to release in recent memory.


Stepping Back In Time With A Patriotic Pop!

Hold on to your laces, sneakerheads! 2022 marked 35 glorious years of the legendary Nike Air Max 1, and the sneaker world felt the earth shake with its super-charged “Big Bubble” makeover! Now, like a phoenix reborn, it's ready to hit the pavements once more in Fall 2023, swaggering in the nostalgic “USA” (Obsidian) ensemble.

This sneaker isn't just a shoe; it’s a canvas! Splashed with pristine White, the mysterious allure of Obsidian, and that oh-so-subtle touch of Light Neutral Grey, it’s an art piece you wear on your feet. The spotlight shines bright on the White mesh that graces the toe box and collar, dancing in a tantalizing tango with overlays of Obsidian and Natural Grey suede.

But wait, there's more! The mudguard and that iconic Nike Swoosh take a deep dive into the Obsidian suede ocean, making a splash in style. And, just when you thought you've seen it all, fiery Red TPU eyestays blaze across, impossible to miss. Completing this masterpiece? The Nike Air branding on the heel, standing tall and proud in a fierce Red, echoing those stars and stripes vibes.


The 2023 Air Max 1 '86 "Obsidian" is set to release on September 9, 2023, for a retail price of $150 on the Nike SNKRS app. If you’re looking to scoop a pair, cross your fingers as this will be a highly coveted release to kick off the fall season
