The Nike Air Force 1 is one of those shoes that you can easily call timeless. There are not many sneakers that can reach this amount of agreement around the sneaker community. The first basketball shoe to house Nike Air came as a high and low model, using mesh and leather materials, was inspired by the Cathedral of Notre Dame (top) and the American presidential airplane “Air Force One” (low). The shoe was designed by Bruce Kilgore, who stated that he also got inspired by the Nike Approach hiking boot. It further brought another man into the picture, Tinker Hatfield who used to be an architect for Nike became a footwear tester for the Air Force 1, the rest is Nike history.
This Nike Air Force 1 low is part of the Flax Wheat Pack and comes in an all monochromatic “wheat” colorway with a gum sole. The model comes perfectly in time as it is a great addition to your autumn/winter sneaker rotation. It further has a leather lining and hidden Flight technology for great comfort. The rubber outsole makes the shoe easy to sport during colder days while the rope-like laces round off the iconic Sneaker.
