Debuted in 1982 as the first basketball shoe with the Nike Air technology the AF1 first gained popularity on the court as a functional high-cut-silhouette and was later on celebrated as a dope low-cut-version in the gobal Hip Hop scene. Ever since the classical AF1 silhouette served as a basis for several artistical designs and famous collaborations. During the decades, the AF1's timeless design has undergone subtle updates to reflect the current moment, without sacrificing its distinct DNA. In its mutability the Nike Air Force 1 has become a global street culture standard and lived up to its title as an »icon« by all means.
Due to the rainy fall days, Nike decided to equip the iconic Air Force 1 with a weatherproof Gore-Tex membrane! On top of that, Nike put multiple Gore-Tex brandings on the heel panel and the tongue tag.
