The legend lives on in the Nike Air Force 1 Mid ’07 Men’s Shoe, a modern take on the icon that blends classic style and fresh, crisp details. The shoes feature a leather upper, with perforations providing ventilation. A foam sole includes encapsulated Air cushioning and a non-marking rubber outsole for traction and durability, whilst padding at the collar gives a snug, comfortable fit. The shoe also benefits from pivot points in the forefoot and heel for smooth transitions in all directions
This once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One the aircraft that carries the US President. In 1982, it was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionising the game 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, but the Nike Air technology takes a back seat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
