History of Nike SF Air Force 1 Mid

Launched in 1982, the Air Force 1 came in a high-top silhouette with a removable ankle strap and a neutral white-grey colorway. As part of the brand's marketing strategy, Nike signed six NBA players Moses Malone, Jamaal Wilkes, Mychal Thompson, Michael Cooper, Bobby Jones, and Calvin Natt that helped define the shoe's overall identity in the following years.

In 1983, a low-top version of the Air Force 1 in an all-white colorway was introduced to the public with an aim for a broader appeal than its predecessor's performance-driven high-top silhouette. But as a practice during that time, a shoe is only available in a certain amount of time and is eventually discontinued to make way for the next model and next technology, so in 1984 the Air Force 1 range was shelved.

In 2017, Nike released a mid-top version of the military-inspired SF Air Force 1s with a few updates. The Nike SF Air Force 1 Mid retained most of the original high-top's blueprint by utilizing ballistic nylon and leather upper and buckled cross straps. But new additions like a double zipper opening at the rear, a slightly lower profile, and a heel tab offered something new to fans.
