Nike, Inc.'s designer, Bruce Kilgore, produced athletic shoes called Air Force 1; this is usually basketball. Rasheed Wallace and Jerry Stackhouse wore them in their play.
Shoes were named after Air Force One by the US President's official plane. The shoes come in three different styles with low top, mid-tops and high heels that are not so common in many stores selling these shoes. The most common are low-top and mid-top. The middle top and upper top are identified by the Velcro fastening strap, while the upper upper strap is fixed to the shoe, the straps can be removed and moved at the top. Air Force One shoes appear in many different colors, selling the most popular Air Force 1 in white, white or dark.
Identifying the Air Force 1 shoe is a small, detachable pendant that is located at the bottom of the lace; this medalion has holes on both sides of the medalion that allows you to remove the shoe from the shoe lace. The pendant contains a silver metallic layer with engraved "AF-1" and "82" indicating the year of the first year of the year. The original shape of the medallion was circular, but after the 25th anniversary re-designing, which was rectangular, the silver medal was replaced with a white plastic with the same inscriptions. The Air Force VVX was introduced to design the anniversary.
Air Force 1 was first produced in 1982 and was discontinued in 1983. The shoes were then reissued three years after it was discontinued (1986), this time branding the modern, Nike logo on the bottom of the shoes. Nothing significant has changed with the shoes ever since. However, original sewing of side panels is uncommon with the modern version of shoes. Since then, more than 1,700 color variants have been produced, which is estimated to be estimated at US $ 800 million a year.
Nike Air Force 1 is a youth, hip hop artist and street basketball player. In 2002, St. Lunatics and Nelly rapper collaborated with the shoe.
Five years after the creation of Air Force 1, Nike, Inc. introduced Air Force 2 shoes; this is basically a newer version of the original, with a typical flat sole and in many colors. Air Force 1, Air Force 2 reappeared in the early 2000s. They come in different designs, whether they are of low quality or of high quality. This later version can be made in any unique style, but it is mainly white or black, with any color for the rear corner and Nike Swoosh.
Air Force 3 was introduced in 1988 and is the most popular in three versions and more durable. In 1989, the Air Force 4 was introduced
