A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH
A hardwood icon gets remixed for the modern era in the Nike Air Force 1 UltraForce Mid Premium Men's Shoe, featuring supportive leather overlays and bootie construction that bring the classic to new levels of street-ready comfort.
Air Force 1 OriginsTranscending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the US President. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionising the game for players such as Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the tarmac to the core of hip-hop culture. Today, the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Nike Air technology takes a back seat to the shoe's status as an icon.
