SNEAKER LIFE: Air Force 1’s – 35th Anniversary

35 years later, NIKE goes against the grain yet again to deliver truth for our soles, as they celebrate the life of one of their greatest sneakers of all time – the Air Force 1. The home of the swoosh went about selecting street culture influencers, the likes of Travis Scott, Kareem “Biggs” Burke, Errolson Hugh, Don C and last but not least the man behind the Off-White stable Virgil Abloh, to collabo with on this anniversary edition of their first ever basketball shoe.

This 1982 classic has done some rounds with creatives employing their spin-offs to bring us freshness on freshness. The white-white pair never runs dry, its DNA is pure butter, so as a base to work from one already has more than just a foundation. However, it must be extremely daunting to be enlisted to recreate such a monumental footwear piece.

This time round the design brief was: “To remain classic and recognisable to the Air Force 1 while connecting to each collaborator’s life personally and the fields they represent”, says Al Baik who’s the Senior Creative Director for NIKE Sportswear and also the Lead Designer. Strategic as with most of their collabo’s, NIKE outdoes itself and proves why being a swoosh addict is the only kind of addiction that should be condoned. This anniversary of the Air Force 1 should go down in history as having paid legit homage to these heavy hitters.

Air force 1’s are the truth, they surely stand firm in their position and boast of having played a pivotal role in the mushrooming of sneaker kingdom. Follow these essentials as we are sure they have special releases still to come – keeping their legacy alive while evolving with the progression of Urban Mainstream Culture.

The revolutionary design of these pairs will allow you trap the heat and keeps things sunny as the end of 2017 approaches.

The Truth is in the sole.
