The hardest working shoe in the shoe business remains hard at work. Each and every month several new colorways of the Nike Air Force One are released. This month isn’t any different. Labeled the very best shoe ever by the sneaker community, the Air Force One remains one of the most popular sneakers on the market. No other athletic shoe ever produced has seen as many editions and colorways as this shoe has seen. So, why does this shoe, considered the very best sneaker made, continue steadily to impress us on a typical basis? There are numerous reasons, a few which are comfort, durability, and design.
Comfort – The Nike Air Force One was the first ever Nike shoe to use their hugely popular Air Technology System. This Nike Air Technology is popular for a reason. This system provides probably the most cushioned ride any athletic shoe has seen. So, what is Nike Air? Nike Air units found in their shoes utilizes the method of containing pressurized gas that’s encapsulated in polyurethane.
Durability – The Air Force One is probably the most, if not merely one of, probably the most durable sneakers ever made. The thickness of the midsole due to the Adidas Superstar Nike Air units housed within, is primarily what makes the shoe so durable. The outsole consists of is manufactured from an incredibly durable rubber compound. This outsole lasts for years.
Design – The AF1 was made by Bruce Kilgore in 1982. Kilgore used an easy, sleak design on the shoe’s upper. The midsole was constructed with enough thickness to keep the large Nike Air units which are contained within it. The design of the shoe creates a compartmentalized design makeup up that allows for utilization of a wide selection of different materials and color elements on both he upper and midsole.
The newest Air Force One is dressed in green from head to toe. The upper’s heel and midfoot are covered in gorge green full grain leather. The forefoot cup of the top of can also be done in gorge green but uses patent leather. The midsole, Swoosh, and heel tab use white and the outsole features gorge green to end the shoe.
Although this shoe was the NikeAir Force One was originally created for basketball in mid-cut and high-cut versions, the low-cut AF1 has become the best sneaker ever made. Although the Air Force One is not a pair of Nike shoes for basketball, there were a few NBA basketball players that have laced them up for the hardcourt. Rasheed Wallace was infamous for his high-top Air Force One’s. But do to the weight of the shoe, the AF1 just doesn’t provide the high end qualities in a basketball shoe that professional players need in today’s game.
