Definitive Street Sneaks
Debuting in 1982 as a basketball shoe, the Nike Air Force 1 eventually transitioned to the casual footwear category as sneaker technology advanced dramatically. But the switch to a new role by no means meant a loss of prestige; in fact, the model’s popularity spread far and wide. Today, the Air Force 1 Low is perhaps the world’s most recognized, and worn, street sneaker.
The AF-1 was the brand’s first model to feature Nike Air heel cushioning, and likely one of the main reasons it was adapted for street use. With a stylishly low silhouette, comfort-engineered construction, and perforations in the toe box and side panels for breathability, this is an essential shoe for people who live on their feet.
•Leather upper provides premium look and feel.
