A Brief Knowledge On The Air Force 1 Classics

, by Ben Mwangi, 3 min reading time

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 - TIMELESS SNEAKER CLASSIC

 

In the early 80s, the Nike brand was primarily known for the outstanding performance of its running shoes. The newly developed Nike Air technology was an absolute game changer that contributed significantly to Nike's legend. A short time later, none other than Nike design icon Bruce Kilgore was commissioned to equip a basketball shoe with the new sole technology. A short time later, the Nike Air Force 1 was born - and with it a cult. Inspiration for the name of the new high-performance basketball silhouette was found at the time in the President of the United States and his plane, the Air Force 1. Later, the Air Force 1 also became the first Nike silhouette ever to be reintroduced by Nike.

VARIANTS OF THE NIKE AIR FORCE 1 - HIGH, MID OR LOW


Since its relaunch in 1986, more than 2000 colorways have been released as high, mid and low versions, so that the Air Force 1 is no longer just worn to play basketball, but can be described as one of the most multifaceted sneakers of all time. No matter if high, mid or low - the AF1 is always an absolute eye-catcher. The Nike Air Force 1 is also available in all versions at Asphaltgold!

 

HOW DOES THE NIKE AIR FORCE 1 FIT - FIND YOUR SIZE


Which size you need in the Air Force 1 depends on how you like to wear your shoes. The AF1 has a normal fit size and therefore fits normally. However, if you like to wear your shoes tight, you can go down a half size with a clear conscience. 

 

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 '07 WITHOUT LIMIT?


The Air Force 1 has been constantly updated over the years with new technologies from Nike. The Nike Air Force 1 is the new edition of the iconic basketball shoe, designed by Bruce Kilgore and belongs to the court classics among the sneakers. The unique Nike Air cushioning, supple leather, eye-catching colorways and extraordinary styles make this cult sneaker an absolute must-have in your sneaker collection! By the way, the Nike Air Force 1 '07 Low in the all-white colorway can be combined with any outfit.

 

THE CUSHIONING IN THE SOLE OF THE NIKE AIR FORCE 1


Compared to other basketball shoes, the AF1 offered 30 percent better cushioning when playing basketball at launch thanks to new Nike-Air technology. The Nike-Air cushioning system cushions each step and then returns to its original shape. This made the Air Force one of the most popular silhouettes in basketball and still gives you maximum comfort for everyday wear. The Nike Air Force 1 offers unparalleled support thanks to the optional Ankle Strap and provides maximum freedom of movement with the Pivot Points placed in the sole. The padding on the ankle and tongue also ensures optimal wearing comfort. The Air Force 1 has also been released in combination with the new React sole technology.

 

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 IN MANY COLOR COMBINATIONS

In the hiphop and graffiti scene the AF1 is already cult, so that numerous collabs with artists like Stash, Kaws, Mr. Cartoon, Bobbito Garcia, DJ Clark Kent and many more have been created. The Air Force 1 can round off your outfit in simple colors or create unique street styles with freaky colorways. Often only the classic Swoosh sets a color accent on your iconic sneaker. The most popular colorway of all time is and remains the Air Force 1 Low '07 All White. This particularly clean version is definitely an all-time classic that perfectly rounds off every outfit and should therefore not be missing from any well-stocked sneaker collection.
