Back in 2006, Nike dropped the Nike Air Max 1 Powerwall BRS as in integral part of their Powerwall series. This Air Max 1 release paid tribute to Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS) as it was meant to be a celebration of the brand’s roots. Now in 2024, Nike is set to revisit the release with the arrival of the Nike Air Max 1 86 Powerwall BRS.
Yet to be unveiled, the Nike Air Max 1 86 Powerwall BRS will not be an exact replica of the original pair from 2006. Instead, it will come equipped with the ’86 silhouettes signature “Big Bubble” design as a nod to the original Air Max 1 design. As far as the rest of the shoe goes, you can expect a Green mesh toe box and matching nylon base that is then contrasted by the Brown suede mudguards and heel tabs, a details that’s reminiscent of early BRS models. Other details you can expect on the sneaker include the Grey mid panels, Pink Swoosh branding and retro Nike branding on the tongue tags. A Sail midsole atop a Black rubber outsole is also expected to be in play. While we await a first look at next year’s release, below you will find images of the original Nike Air Max 1 Powerwall BRS from 2006.
