After months of anticipation, the Nike Air Max 1 ’86 finally releases in a “Dark Obsidian/University Red” color scheme tomorrow, September 9th.
Reminiscent of pairs that debuted more than 35 years ago, the latest take on Tinker Hatfield’s iconic design features original color-blocking across its textile and fabric upper. A grayscale finish lands on the base, with mudguards, profile swooshes, and other branding hits deviating in the titular “Dark Obsidian” and “University Red” duo. Underfoot, the “Big Bubble”-assisted sole unit favors a “colorless” ensemble that captures the Air Max component. Waffle-patterned outsole bring the upper’s combination of tones underneath.
Enjoy detailed photos of the pair ahead, as you wait to try your luck on your size tomorrow, September 9th.
