The Big Bubble Nike Air Max 1 Gets a Golf Edition
Nike will be belatedly celebrating the OG Air Max 1 in 2023 with a growing number of reissues featuring its ‘big bubble’ from its very earliest days. Best recognised in ‘Sport Red’, the vibrant colourway will be present on the Air Max 1 Golf, designed for flexing on the green.
Per its preview earlier this year, the latest update to the AM1 is supposed to be truer to its circa 1986/87 edition by way of the larger visible Air unit and reconfigured panelling. This can be seen above, as the bubble is noticeably longer than before, plus the mudguard is considerably sleeker, too. Besides that, the rubber outsole pattern is tweaked to use finer tread for grip on grass and sandbanks.
Other elements of this AM1 Golf should be familiar to fans of the model – microfibre and mesh uppers are correct, and the red, grey and white are nice and bright. Perhaps this combo is best worn when there’s no dew out on the 18 holes. Expect this pair (and likely others) to arrive in 2023 at Nike retailers.
