As we gear up for 26th March 2024, we’re getting hyped for one of Nike’s coolest events: Air Max Day. It’s basically Christmas Day for Air Max enthusiasts, and this year is shaping up to be one to remember.

Nike has already set the ground for excitement by announcing the release of a new model, the Air Max DN. But, that’s not all. We’ve got a first look at yet another special design thanks to NBA superstar LeBron James. During a recent game against the Washington Wizards, LeBron wore a pair of the Air Max 1 ’86 ‘Royal’. What are they? – we hear you ask. Let’s take a look.

Reflecting on the history of this iconic event, Nike has chosen to revive one of its most beloved releases from the past. In 2014, the Air Max 1 ‘Sport Red’ captured the hearts of fans with its vibrant colourway and commemorative ‘3.26’ tongue detail. Now, a decade later, and the brand is revisiting this classic concept with a modern twist.

Enter the Air Max 1 ’86 ‘Sport Royal’. Paying homage to its predecessor, this reimagined silhouette features the same iconic design elements that made the original a hit. However, this time around, Nike has opted for a fresh colour palette, swapping out the fiery red accents for cool, royal blue overlays.

But the homage doesn’t end there. The signature ‘3.26’ branding, a nod to Air Max Day’s founding date, adorns the tongue in a matching shade of blue, serving as a reminder of the event’s significance to sneaker culture. And of course, true to its heritage, the sneaker retains its eye-catching neon volt midsole, ensuring that it stands out from the crowd.
