Bruce Kilgore’s original design that saw the light of the world in 1982 has become the unchallenged pacemaker of the sneaker subculture for thirty years, and throughout its existence it has weathered the storm of the ever-changing trends of footwear fashion, serving as the indomitable pillar of the sneaker culture that has become the powerhouse it is today. Some call the Air Force 1 the ‘perfect shoe’; it looked spectacular on your feet and in the thirty years of existence, we’ve certainly seen it come to light in various forms and colorways, forming a vast library of legendary kicks with no end in sight.
From originals to the simple two-tone colorways of the late 90’s/early 00’s that pretty much paved the way for the SB Dunk to gain its own notoriety to the Hyperstrike releases and the luxury-grade Bespoke, the Air Force 1 legend only continues to grow, but this latest video feature titled ’30 Years / 30 Kicks’ gives us a quick rundown of the wide range of the Air Force 1, highlighting thirty of its most awesome and memorable installments. Can you name all thirty? Check out this video directed by Sneads By REE, featuring the sick AF1 collection of Afrokix and chime in by naming your favorite Air Force 1 of all-time!

bought a pair of superbowl af1, wear on special occasions.... now the upper and midsole is coming apart. dont know if it's due to the fact the shoes are kept too long at the shop or what.... anyone has the same problem?
AND FOR THE RECORD ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ <>><><> MY COMMENTS AND EVERYTHING IS FOR THE AFRO KICKS CLOWN NOT REE ... I GOT LOVE/RESPECT 4 REE , HE DO HIS THING ... BUT AFRO KICKS IS A CLOWN
funny thing about AF1s...I remember growing up in FL and u was 'trying to be like New Yorkers' when u would wear AF1s...now that's all u see down here...if they wanna do AF1 justice for 30 yrs they should bring back the jeweled check on some pairs that's not the Foamposite AF1
I wouldn't be bragging about having those socks. Look like some old lady schoolteacher pantyhose you gay-ass nigga..
This classic has been so disrespected the past two years, cats out there breaking their necks for sorry JB re-retros and miss out on the classics. Or they value the opinion of others so highly that they let them dictate their pockets. Don't worry AF-1 us true sneaker enthusiasts haven't forgot about you
they are bringing back the jewel pairs (yes the regular jewels not the foamposites) but they wont be the same. they will be just like every other 2012 GR just with a jewel swoosh. which IMO is wack because if you know anything about jewel swoosh air forces from the 90's then you know the shape, the toe box, the midsole, and the leather is what makes those things what they are (fire) ... the 2012 pairs are going to be shitty fake plastic pleather leather, square toe box, giant midsole, and horrible over all shape smh ... not even worth copping
THANK YOU!!! i was just about to say the same thing everytime i see this clowns name somewhere involved with air forces he shows the same 7 or 8 pairs ..... ><><><> i dont respect these kind of clowns who have only the "hypebeast heat" this clown has nothing 1990-2005 its nothing but the hypebeast pairs. if you dont have a good amount of vintage pairs, some mid 2000's pairs, some GR's, etc i dont respect your collection and to me your just a clown hypebeast. Oh and get your collection up you got about 4 or 5 decent pairs. your missing a WHOLE TON of the good pairs. This guy is a clown.
yes.... the Nike Air Force One is truly the best sneaker ever...(now if nike can ever get around to re releasing the Linens and Uenos then i'd die happy)
yeah but that's shoes nowadays...I remember a pair of shoes would last a year as a kid playing outside, playing ball etc now u buy shoes and they might last 6 months if u wear them everyday...its almost like u gotta switch shoes up now just so they last with the poor materials
Not to be rude but you kinda sound like a hater. First of all, what someone shows you is only what they want you to know. You ain't in his house? At the end of the day this was about creativity. Has Nike asked you to do anything to commemorate anything or co-sign your work? Probably not. You can have a million pairs from 90-00 but never have came up with anything half as clever as this. Is it simple, yes but its about the sneakers and they used what they had to make something. Maybe if you were more business minded you could have helped him expand on his idea with a few pairs from your "respectable" collection to create something even better for the sneaker community to see. Instead you playa hate from the sideline? If I am wrong fine but much respect to REE.
unless i was watching another video he show 30 pairs and some mega heat at that. Of course he's going to show off the rarer stuff, did expect some generic white/navy GR's and white on whites? please....stop with the jealousy as most of us know that for a lot of those pairs u need a hookup, a lot of cash or both. That being said those socks gotta go!
AND ALSO NO SOMEONE SHOWS YOU WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW BLA BLA WHATEVER YOU SAID FALSE .... IVE SEEN THIS CLOWNS COLLECTION ON SNEAKERPLAY AND OTHER LOSER SITES LIKE THAT SO I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE HAS AND WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT THANKS ....... HAHAHA SOUND LIKE A HATER??? WHAT WOULD I HAVE TO HATE ON HIM FOR? I HAVE EVERYTHING HE HAS PLUS ABOUT 400 MORE LOL ..... AND ALL KINDS OF OTHER STUFF HE DOESNT HAVE AND COULD NEVER ATTAIN ... SO STFU AND GTFOH WITH YOUR DUMB NONSENSE... AGAIN, U HAVE NO CLUE WHAT YOURE TALKING ABOUT
