As homage to the presidential plane of the United States of America, Nike launched the Air Force 1 silhouette in 1982. The shoe features the Air technology which predominantly gives support for the heel and delivers enhanced cushioning. The introduction of the shoe also used the slogan “Air in the Box.”
With the use of the profile of hiking cleats, Bruce Kilgore, who was one of the brand’s designer, was able to develop a basketball shoe design. They went through the risks of conceptualizing their first basketball shoe which is now popularly known as the Nike Air Force 1. The design of the silhouette displays a ripple pattern pivot point which is fitting in the basketball court. It also showcases a slanted shaft which delivers enhanced flexibility.
In 1984, the production of the Nike Air Force 1 shoes was canceled but two years later in 1986, the silhouette surfaced again. The return of the shoe was a huge success, and over the years, the brand was able to produce almost 2000 variations of the classic sneaker.
