Word of upcoming VNTG-treated Air Max 1s first broke in late summer, when the time-tested ‘Sport Red’ colorup came onto the scene rocking that familiar pre-yellowed look. We got another look shortly after and things quieted down for a bit as we forged ahead with the holiday season offerings, but last week’s revelation of a ‘forgotten’ OG colorup again has sneakerheads talking about the Eighty-Seven in year twenty-six. The Nike Air Max 1 VNTG resurrects the original navy/red edition we’ve only seen hinted at with the ‘USA’ joints over a decade ago, and in these latest shots, it appears Nike Sportswear has nailed the midsole aging process so thoroughly, these really do look like they’ve been locked in storage for a quarter-century (albeit with less crumbling). Stick with Sneaker News for release info on this SU13 drop and check out some new images below in the meantime.
