The Nike Air Force 1 is a hoops legend as much as it is central to Nike's DNA. With that equitable comparison, the iconic basketball shoe also highlighted the beginning of Nike's improved design and innovation in performance footwear for athletes. Since 1982, the upper, midsole and outsole have been at the forefront of Nike's cutting-edge approach to form and function. For the Air Force 1, Bruce Kilgore's 52 Star studded outsole design; such a fresh approach to athletic footwear would play out on the hardwoods and asphalts alike. From Lunar to Flyknit, the latest remastered AF1 yields the Ultra Force Mid. In the vein of foot-hugging, cozy appendages with sock-like fits, the Ultra Force Mid features an internal bootie structure with overlaid mesh, ensuring equal measures of breathability and flexibility. Fastened by a leather Vac-Tech quarter, heel and toe-piece, the mid-cut sports reflective taping that extends to heel and tongue loops for easier transitions on and off foot. Cushioned by a cored out, Phylon injected Ultra midsole that further contributes to the remastered design's lightweight properties, a new legacy of the Air Force 1 is born in form and function.

The Men's Air Force 1 Ultra Force Mid is priced at $179.95 AUD | Size: Men's US 6-13
