The Nike Air Force 1 High is perhaps the AF1 most beloved edition. This iteration of the high-cut silhouette comes with some design variations. The LV8 line of AF1 models is another spin on the Air Force 1’s build. In this case, we see an All-Red upper that also sports grid-patterned stitching along the midfoot.
As historically hype-worthy as the All-Red scheme has been, few features help a sneaker sell quicker than a Gum outsole. On this particular model, it serves as a competent contrast to the upper’s louder tone.
Nike Air Force 1: History Since 1982
The Air Force One, the one and only, was originally released back in 1982. Up until this day it still holds an icon-status among many sneakers enthusiasts and collectors.
Nike, and the Air Force 1 model is still linked to sportswear, lifestyle and countless musical sub-cultures as a whole.
We do know that over one thousand colorways have been released and retroed since the original release. Moreover, we have seen way too many iterations and collaborations of them, year after year.
Do you know when you somehow get tired of a particular shoe because you get to see them way too often? Well, the exact opposite happens to the Air Force 1, even if they have been around for so long.
No one, yes, no one gets tired of them (well, almost no one) and that does not really mean that you are a collector. It is a thing and circumstance that shows that you respect and understand the culture and where it all started.
Inspired by the airplane that carries the President of the United States of America, the AF1 original shape has not changed. Built with clean lines and strong as well as with bulky air midsoles, matching the current fashion.
