Update: The powerhouse duo of Jacquemus and Nike presented their unique take on the Air Max 1 ‘86 to conclude May and have now offered a complete set of visuals showcasing their red colorway. Release information has not yet been shared, but we do have a closer look at the details discussed previously below, as well as a detailed look at the special hang tags made for the project. Enjoy the preview of the red colorway above and stay tuned for more updates as we expect all three pairs to arrive in the coming months via Nike SNKRS and select retailers at a price of $180 USD.


Update: Jacquemus has officially revealed its forthcoming Nike Air Max 1 ‘86 collaboration in three colors: white, silver and red. Following images of sample pairs that began circulating on sneaker leaker Instagram accounts in January, the official reveal provides a much clearer look at the collaboration’s unique modifications to its base silhouette.

Chief among these is the design’s altered Air unit window, which is elongated and rectangular on the lateral side but shrunken and squared off on the medial side — a tweak that Jacquemus describes as “ROUND AND SQUARE AIR FOR THE FIRST TIME,” but that’s far from the only modification. An altered toe bumper that creeps onto the upper gives the design a more pointed, angular look, while material composition also varies on each model. The white pair boasts a partially perforated leather upper while the silver and red pairs opt for mesh, but all three are united by small metallic Swooshes and a mudguard with a raw edge that hangs out slightly below its bottom seam plus a higher-than-standard top stitch, furthering the toebox’s pointy aesthetic. Co-branded tongues and special leather lace tips add further to the unique look. At the same time, a custom outsole pattern is present on the right sneaker, swapping out the standard waffle traction and Nike embellishment for a Jacquemus hit and round nodules. Lastly, the collar, thinner than a standard Air Max 1 collar, features a quilted liner, and the shoes boast custom hangtags.

Jacquemus founder Simon Porte Jacquemus’ favorite pair of the three? “SILVER,” as he says in a comment on the Instagram post that revealed the collection.

A release date has yet to be announced at the time of writing. However, you can expect the Jacquemus x Nike Air Max 1 ‘86 to arrive later this year, potentially as part of a summer drop. Read the original article below for more info.


Original Story: While the House of Jacquemus is celebrating the success of its SS24 runway show in its home country of France, it has also made headlines with a leaked look at its next project with Nike. The two have previously worked on the Air Humara and their collaborative J Force 1, with the latter appearing in a new colorway just last week. Now, their rumored team-up on the Air Max 1 ‘86 has now been confirmed with a glance at two collaborative colorways.

Based on our initial look at the two pairs, each have had their medial and lateral Swooshes replaced with mini versions in a metallic silver finish, as the two brands have done with previous footwear projects. Looking first at the silver pair, its upper sports the hue across its build, which notably lacks some of its typical overlays. Navy touches down at the sole, another element that Jacquemus adjusted on both pairs as its lateral sees a large rectangular window display the Air unit while the medial only offers a small rectangular window. Its second colorway features white at the upper, gray at the mudguard and an off-white at the sole. Rounding out both pairs, the heel features a debossed “JACQUEMUS” hit with two co-branded hangtags completing this first look.

At the time of writing, neither Jacquemus nor Nike have confirmed any release details regarding their forthcoming project involving the Air Max 1 ‘86 in these two colorways. Stay tuned for updates as it’s likely to arrive in the coming months via Nike SNKRS, Jacquemus and select retailers at a currently-unknown price point.
