A hardwood icon gets remixed for the modern era in the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Force Mid Men’s Shoe, featuring a breathable, easy-on bootie, ultralight cushioning and reflective accents to bring the classic to new levels of street-ready comfort.
A one-piece internal bootie with a mesh overlay helps keep your feet cool and allows you to put the shoe on and take it off easily.
The Ultra midsole is cored out in key areas for an incredibly lightweight, flexible feel. The durable foam doubles as an outsole, dramatically reducing the shoe’s overall weight.
Leather overlays add durability and pay tribute to classic AF1 design lines.
AIR FORCE 1 ORIGINS
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionising the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the tarmac to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Nike Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
