Nike is finally doing right by the Air Max 1 in 2023 as it is scheduled to bring back the original large Air Max units this year. An all-black weartest sample of said Air Max 1 “Big Bubble” was leaked in March of 2022, revealing the enlarged Max Air unit at the heel to reflect the original specs of the first visible Air Max sneaker. Not much later, the Air Max 1 ’86 “Sport Red” was revealed on an installment of Nike SNKRS Live, further confirming reports made by Air Max enthusiast @bubblekoppe.

While updated images of the 2023 Air Max 1 ’86 “Big Bubble” haven’t been revealed, a style code of this anticipated release has surfaced, further pointing to a release around the Air Max Day 2023 festivities. This upcoming March 26th – the designated calendar date of this holiday – marks the tenth overall Air Max Day celebration, so what better way to commemorate this milestone with a proper retro?

Stay tuned for updates as we learn more about the Air Max 1 ’86 “Big Bubble” as well as the rest of the Air Max Day 2023 line-up.
