Nike Air Force – legend status
This classic is a basketball shoe and was brought to the market in 1982. As a streetstyle shoe, it was particularly popular on the Hip-Hopscene. In total, over 1,700 models in many different colours and material combinations have been developed over the last 25 years, but they’ve all remained true to the roots of the original AF1 style and the everyday Nike Air comfort.
Today, it’s no longer just basketball players that buy the Nike Air Force.In actual fact, Nike Air Force can now be found adorning the feet of lots of people who have nothing to do with the sport as today it’s evolved into probably the best known lifestyle shoe in the history of trainers. So we’re talking about a real pioneer here, which is hard to beat in terms of popularity.
Inert gas - the filling in the Air Pad
At the same time, the Nike Air Force was the first basketball shoe with Nike Air technology. But what is it exactly? This innovative concept sees the sole in the heel area filled with an inert gas mixture (Air Pad).This integration provides optimum suspension when running, something that we know happens quite often in basketball and various other sports. As a result, the joints are relieved and you’re supported when you run. The upper is made of leather, which gives you a compelling and road-ready look. The high profile shape of this shoe complements the design and offers exceptional comfort and stability. But it’s not only the functionality of the shoe that’s so compelling, but also the unique look giving the shoe its individual recognition factor, that has won over so many fans, even today.
