Hiking-boot inspired AF 1 High

In 1984, the AF1 took a two-year break from the limelight and returned as the dominating model in the market.  

To date, there are almost 2,000 adaptations of the Air Force 1 and Nike still keeps on launching variations every season. The AF1 has been considered as the most publicized sneaker of all time and has been on the bestsellers list, consistently.
