Nike Air Force 1

With both a wealth of collaborations and oft-worn general releases, the Nike Air Force 1 quickly became one of the most popular sneakers in history. It was designed by Bruce Kilgore back in 1982, releasing in both a High-Top and Low-Top shape. Now, decades after, the silhouette is objectively one of the brand’s best sellers and it sits among the rotations of celebrities like Travis Scott, Hiroshi Fujiwara, G-Dragon, and many others.

Throughout the years, the Air Force One (as it’s sometimes referred to) has produced a number of distinct iterations — some leaning towards technical upgrades while others more artistic interpretations. While the SF-AF1, Lunar Air Force 1, and Acronym’s Downtown AF1 have aimed to apply a more utilitarian filter, partnerships with the aforementioned Big Bang leader, Supreme, KITH, and Off-White have grounded the model in an unmatched versatility.

From hidden artwork to subtle streetwear branding, the Air Force 1 has seen it all. Since its inception, it’s become a totem of the entire Nike umbrella, bearing Jordan Brand influences, ACG references, and powerful messaging all within the span of a calendar year. In recent memory, collaborations with the likes of Cactus Plant Flea Market and Jacquemus as well as an in-house “Chinese New Year” pair have shown that the silhouette can still be plenty subversive despite its ubiquity.

And while notable for such variety, both the Triple White and Triple Black colorways have remained a mainstay within the AF1’s library of styles. While the latter is controversial thanks to its unique associations, the former is an oft-worn icon that has become the perfect canvas for sneaker customizers. Alongside, fans of all ages have given it a permanent spot in their personal wardrobe.

Retail prices for the Air Force 1 vary by style. Most will be available at $115 USD while more limited editions can sell for upwards of $250 USD.
