An icon never goes out of style; it only gets better with age, just like the Nike Air Force 1 shoe. The AF1 has been a fan favourite among sneakerheads since its first appearance in 1982 as a basketball shoe. As the name suggests, AF1 pays homage to US President’s private plane, but it was conceptualised by legendary shoe designer Bruce Kilgore with the Nike hiking boot in mind. That’s why the first AF1 is high cut with a thick sole and strap – a simple, but striking look. It was the first time Nike introduced Air sole technology into hoop shoes, which is a revolutionary and game-changing move.
Now, as the Shop Fake Off White Air Force 1 shifts further into the style domain, it never loses its appeal or durability – and it remains one of the most popular and best-selling Nike sneakers of all time. After 35 years, with thousands of iterations in low, mid to high cuts, and hues from the classic white-on-white colours to crazy prints, the Nike Air Force 1 shoe continues to impress the fans time and time again. And not just because of nostalgia – people love it from the leather upper to the unique Pivot Point outsole.
