We’ve all come to know and love the Air Force 1, a silhouette that the majority of us have owned at some point throughout our years. Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, Nike look back at the history of the AF1 and some of it stand out memories.
The ‘Colour of the Month’ Air Force 1 is an anniversary edition that looks at two distinct moments in its history. The first? Well that goes back to 1984 when the Air Force 1 may have not become the giant it became. Potentially saving it from extinction, shops in Baltimore couldn’t get hold of product fast enough due to the demand they were facing. This led to shop keepers asking, begging for custom colour ways to sell within their store and you could say, that was that for the Air Force 1. It went on to become an icon off the court and took the fashion and street culture by storm.
The second is that crisp white upper. Though its had an abundance of collaborations and in-line specials, the all white Air Force 1 is something that will forever go down in sneaker history.
So that’s that, we come back to 2022 with this special anniversary edition that celebrates all things Air Force 1! Take a closer look at this latest iteration below which is now available to shop in-store and online here!
