Nike Sportswear celebrated Air Max Day 2023 by bringing back the popular “Big Bubble” Air Max 1 that was part of the original production run in 1986, before the Air Max 1 made its debut in 1987. Going forward, the Swoosh will be releasing a brand new Air Max 1 ’86 lineup which already includes the “Smokey Mauve” colorway, and now this upcoming “Light Armory Blue” makeup.
