When Nike cross-pollinated its running technology into basketball back in '82, the Air Force 1 changed the trajectory of the sport and the footwear game for years to come. Deep-seated in three decades of footwear heritage, the AF1 has become a staple choice for literally millions of sneaker fans and a true streetwear icon in its own right. Understanding that personal style varies from person to person, Nike Sportswear has once again re-envisioned the humble court-crusader, adding a new breed of legends-in-training to the stables.
Strictly for the ladies, NSW will deliver five silhouettes for the collection, consisting of original AF1 Low and High options, the newly created Air Force 1 Ultra Low and Mid, and also the stunning Nike Lunar Force 1 Sky Hi that we checked out a couple of days back. The entire collection will be available from select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike.com commencing July 17, bringing the legendary silhouette to places no Force has gone before.
