The Nike Air Force 1 is one of the most influential sneakers of all time. Originally released in 1982, the AF1 has gone from a basketball favorite to a cultural icon. As one of the highest-selling Nike sneakers in history, the Air Force 1 has inspired people in unexpected ways including two chart-topping songs.
The original Air Force 1, a white and grey high top, had an ankle strap and a circle tread pattern on the outsole. The shoe was extremely popular, gaining endorsements from some of the biggest names in the NBA like Jamaal Wilkes, Michael Cooper, and Moses Malone. The AF1 became the shoe to have both on and off the court. Since then it has become a style icon and only gained in popularity over the last 30 years.
When Nike released the Air Force 1 it truly started the trend of basketball shoes becoming mainstream street fashion pieces. AF1s come in a huge variety of colors and styles. There is an AF1 made to complete any head-to-toe look. At Champs Sports we have one of the largest selections available.
