Has there been a more battle-tested, everlasting sneaker in history like the Air Force 1? Thirty four years into existence, this innovative basketball sneaker from 1982 continues to lead the charge for Nike Sportswear, headline a category that makes up for a huge chunk of Nike’s overall business. Originally designed by Bruce Kilgore, the Air Force 1 has since fallen in the hands of Nike’s most next-level designers tasked with enhancing this perfect shoe by implementing the brand’s most celebrated advancements. Over the years, Nike has emphasized the Air Force 1 as the ultimate test subject for these crossovers between innovation and heritage, and today, the brand is ready to officially unveil the Air Force 1 Flyknit, the lightest Air Force 1 in the brand’s history.

There’s a lot more than simply slapping on the attractive knit material on the upper of the shoe; since Flyknit is without form, it needs to be engineered meticulously in order to generate a shape, and replicating the DNA of a globally recognized sneaker like the Air Force 1 is no easy task. In addition to the new Flyknit material, Nike designers went to work on the signature midsole and managed to produce something that impeccably bridges the gap between the old and the new. The Air Force 1 Flyknit is finally here, so check out our first-hand breakdown of this exciting new chapter of this classic sneaker.
