Not only a shoe, but something more: the Air Force 1 is the sheer milestone of athletic footwear, sketched in 1982 from the based-in-Beaverton brand in order to supply to athletes something never seen before on the basketball ground. Named after the airplane provided to the american president, these Nike sneakers have introduced groundbreaking habits and concepts for that time: the instant give up of a silhouette in order to deal with a new one, for instance, was the usual method,but the unbelievable request of these coveted Nike kicks make this system fall apart. Beyond being the first of the so-called retro shoes, they also introduced the Air technology in basketball sneakers, becoming the first model to achieve a complete success on the court. The upper is traditionally made up of leather, but with more than 200o models behind you can easily find other materials, such as suede, synthetic, nylon, denim and Flyknit, whose breathability and softness get on well with the neat Air Force shape; the swoosh stands out clear on the sides of these basketball shoes, while the strap and the tongue are key elements to create the figure of this legendary Nike silhouette. Devised as high sneakers, they feature low and mid versions too, available in a wide range of colors, prints and materials, without forgetting the super-clean white Air Force: pair them with a pair of comfy jeans, a colorful checked shirt and the latest snapback on your head for a classic streetwear outfit.
