Nike signed the "Original Six," composed of six NBA stars such as Moses Malone and Bobby Jones of Philadelphia 76ers, Michael Cooper and Jamaal Wilkes of L.A. Lakers, and Mychal Thompson and Calvin Natt of Portland Trail Blazers for the official launch of the Nike Air Force 1. Each of them was given a pair of the AF1 in the original white/gray colorway to endorse.

The Air Force One's production was discontinued after only two years, but the demands for the shoe remained high. It came to a point where the distributors had to ask Nike about the possibility of re-issuing the shoes to meet the consumers’ demands. Eventually, in 1986, the Oregon-based sportswear brand acknowledged the idea and the Air Force One became the first shoe to have a retro release.
