LEGENDARY STYLE, REFINED.
The Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite Cupsole Men’s Shoe combines two legendary hoops styles. Crafted with pearlized leather in the seamless Foamposite construction, it remasters the crisp design lines of the AF1 to deliver an explosive sneaker mash-up.
Air Force 1 Origins
This once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. In 1982, it was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood, to the blacktop, to the core of hip-hop culture. Today, the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning, but the Nike Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
