Nike has unveiled a golf version of the sold-out Air Max 1 Big Bubble. Identical at first glance, the golf variant sports a slightly altered outsole and a slightly thinner Air unit – however it’s just as wide with four pillars within it. In terms of the upper, you can expect the same mix of mesh, suede overlays and sock liners. If you took an L on the drop date, consider shopping the Air Max 1 ’86 OG G to own the look without paying for resale.
