The Air Force 1 is one of Nike's most dramatic sneakers ever, and they've made many iconic designs over the years, but it's hard to top the amount of attention they bring with them. These shoes have been in great demand for many years now and will continue to be so for many years to come as well.
The Nike Air Force 1 first entered manufacturing in 1982 and was designed by Tinker Hatfield. The idea was that the shoe would be a high-tech performance shoe, introduced to the market by Nike's partnership with NASA.
The sneaker was inspired by NASA's moon-walking boots and featured a combined upper of genuine nubuck suede and aerodynamic stretch mesh, as well as perforated nylon panels on both sides of the shoe. It also featured an air unit in each heel for better cushioning and support than previous Nike shoes - just two years before the Nike Air Max 1.
More than 30 years later, many fans are still able to play on the court with a pair of AF1s. If you have the low-cut version, you’d have no problem wearing them all day because these shoes are just built for comfort. Stylish kicks at an affordable price!
This silhouette is considered to be one of the perfect sneakers. They combine the best features of Nike's three most iconic styles- the Nike Air, Nike Mag, and Nike Cortez- into a single shoe. They also have a timeless look that goes beyond fashion trends.
With many different colorways and material choices, these shoes are anticipated by sneakerheads around the world for their release dates in January every year.
