The legend lives on in the Nike Air Force 1 Mid 06 Older Kids' Shoe. It stays true to its roots with comfortable Nike Air cushioning and the iconic style of the 1982 original.
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.
