BENEFITS Water-shield technology at the upper for protection from the elements Soft, insulated lining to keep feet warm in colder temperatures Aggressive lugs at the outsole for traction on slippery surfaces Heavy-duty eyestays for durability in any condition Air unit in the heel for cushioning AIR FORCE 1 ORIGINS Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One-the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the blacktop 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 Air technology takes a back seat to the shoe's status as an icon.
