Nike debuted their new Air Max 1 ’86 for Air Max Day this year, recreating the shoe’s original 1986 release before the necessary rework of the midsole for ’87. Now, a new ‘Blue Safari’ look of the remastered pair has surfaced, coming this year.
Nike’s remastered Air Max 1 has had a quiet few months since its debut back in March. After Los Angeles’ Kids of Immigrants helped drop four additional colorways, which saw a small secondary release early this month, we have been anxiously awaiting more styles of the ‘Big Bubble’ model. This week brings us a first look at a new ‘Blue Safari’ pair, which remixes the silhouette with new materials and patterns. The look features a pale grey mesh base, adding light blue canvas for the shoe’s midfoot and heel overlays. The mudguard comes in a printed Safari leather, featuring two shades of blue to achieve the desired contrast, matching the navy blue Swooshes and outsoles. Finally, a simple AIR logo is printed on the outer heels.

This ‘Blue Safari’ look in canvas and leather will hopefully see a release from both the SNKRS app and select retailers, with the price tag of $150.
