Nike Air Force 1 Gore-Tex History

Nike’s first basketball-specific shoe, the Air Force One, was designed by Bruce Kilgore and was released in 1982. It was initially designed with a high top, and due to its popularity and widespread success, the AF1 has become a model for over a thousand different Air Forces, which is manufactured in different colorways, various tops, and mixed materials. From being a basketball shoe, it has successfully transitioned to a lifestyle shoe. Today, the Air Force One is Nike’s best-selling sneaker of all time.
