The Nike SF Air Force 1 Mid Men’s Shoe delivers covert military utility in a classic hoops silhouette. It’s made with ballistic nylon, premium leather and a dual-zip heel for easy entry.
Standardlaces, an ankle strap and a dual-zip heel work together as a dynamic closure system. This gives you a variety of ways to wear and secure your shoe.
The heel and tongue are made with a ballistic nylon material. This makes the shoe durable and flexible and gives it a look inspired by military field boots.
AIR FORCE 1 ORIGINS
This once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the US President. In 1982, it was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionising the game 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, but the Nike Air technology takes a back seat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
