Nike Air Force 1 (AF1)
The Nike Air Force 1 (AF1) dates back to the early 80s when it first launched as a basketball low-top. Despite becoming one of the most iconic trainers of all time, it was first dismissed by sneaker fanatics following that initial launch. Thankfully, Nike re-released the Air Force 1 several years later and the rest is history.
As this shoe made the transition from the courts to the streets, it quickly became a cult symbol amongst rappers, athletes and fashionistas. Thousands of colourways have released over the years from heavy-hitting collaborations such as the recent Off-White colourway to the more unassuming appeal of those general releases.
Nike continues to reinvent the Air Force 1 whether it’s those Flyknit crafted options or simply a brand-new colourway and pattern that’s never before been done. That said, the return of OG releases are just as sought-after. This versatile range continues to shape the street-scene and proves to be one of Nike most influential trainers.
