The Nike Air Force 1 Turns 35


The Nike Air Force 1 celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2017. To mark the occasion, we take a glance at the past and present of one of Nike's most iconic designs. Seldom veering from the spotlight, the Nike AF1 cements its immortality in 'White On White' & 'Black On Black' colourways. These evergreen iterations remain highly coveted, just as they did when they first appeared in 1994. Just another reason this hoops legend possesses an enviable chapter in the book of sneaker culture and legend. The Future Is Force. #MyAF1

The legacy of the AF1 flickers more brightly on the screens of users today, more than ever. To celebrate 35 years, the AF1 will evolve while simultaneously remaining true to its original Bruce Kilgore designed form. To fulfil the mandate of 'The Future Is Force', Nike have sought to further enhance the AF1 tooling and fabrication to present something new, drifting from the classicism of 'White On White'. Drawing on the rugged, distressed and fatigue complementing attributes of the original high-top design (that which has been extrapolated and teased thank to countless winterised editions and duckboot edits), Nike unveiled the SF-AF1, that granted the uptown a chance to exude utility, para-military aesthetics and still possess the unrivalled look of an AF1. More of this elevated AF1 experience is set to appear on Hype DC Shelves. In the meantime, it's hard to go past or put down a classic if you haven't already owned a pair of the Nike Air Force 1.

In the current climate of short attention spans, colour fads, seasonal trends and ironic errors in style, the Nike Air Force 1 is seldom out of place. While the Swoosh may rise and fall as it has done so for much of the past 40 odd years, the Nike Air Force 1 rarely traces a nadir that constitutes extinction or sneer, but rather has always been there. It's not going anywhere fast (it has never leapt at any cause too quickly) and will always remain the past, present and future of the Swoosh, come what may. If you haven't already, grab a slice of the Nike AF1 now, like you did last time and will unregrettably do so the future.
