The Nike Air Force: A Brief History
Even though the Nike Air Force 1 is a silhouette in the sneaker scene that doesn't need many more words, I still want to pay some attention to its past. After all, these sneakers have been around for a long time and have proven themselves year after year all over the world. The legendary Nike Air Force 1 was originally released in 1982 as a basketball shoe. This was also the first shoe to be released with Nike Air technology. As the name Air Force 1 comes from the American presidential plane Air Force 1, this sneaker was meant for great things.
The high-top version was celebrated on the basketball court, while the low-top version was widely used throughout the hip-hop scene. The versatility of this model and its worldwide popularity were the perfect basis for a sneaker that resulted in subtle contemporary updates, close collaboration and endless artistic design. Take for example the recent Nike Air Force 1 Pink Valentine editions that have been released and are still available through retailers and resellers.
But despite its great history, the typical Air Force 1 DNA, for which we have designer Bruce Kilgore to thank, has never gone out of fashion. We therefore celebrate the Nike Air Force 1 as a true timeless sneaker icon.
