History of Nike Air Force 1 07 Mid LV8
Nike Air Force 1 07 Mid LV8 comes from a shoe that has withstood the test of time. The original 1982 model took its name from the call sign of the airplane that transports typically the President of the United States. It is one of the best-selling shoes to date. By the year 2005, 12 million pairs of the AF1 were sold.
When the Air Force 1 was conceptualized, Nike was a neophyte in the basketball shoe industry.
True to its basketball calling Bruce Kilgore, one of the Swoosh’s most popular designers, went with circular outsole traction as opposed to the typical herringbone traction which is a common feature of basketball shoes at the time.
The Nike Air Force 1 07 LV8 displays the revamped look of its ancestor added with the thicker midsole and bouncier cushioning. The brand transformed its upper with a plushier look by using premium leather, suede, or textile inserted with ample padding and cushioning for day-long use.
Meanwhile, the high-top AF1 version called the Air Force 1 07 Hi LV8 has a premium leather upper with the ankle strap, top-stitching, a classic AF1 lacing, rubber outsole with a circular pattern, and a discernible thick midsole.
