Actually, Nike’s precious silhouette has actually seen some brand-new colorways (you should see the Air Force 1 Valentine 2021 edition).
This sneaker is currently more popular than ever before! But why this silhouette receives back such public attention? The story behind is absolutely unique. To comprehend, we need to get back to the 80s.
When did Air Forces 1 come out?
The initial model of the Nike Air Force One debut in 1982 and included air technology, which at that time was brand-new to the world of basketball. The threaded outsole made it less complicated for basketball players to move, and a belt on the top of the sneaker along with a variable lacing system functioned to maintain the sneaker on player’s foot while staying comfy enough to play.
Who made Air Force Ones popular?
As new versions of this sneaker model came along, the Air Force 1 low had increased in admiration and it was due to its highly presence in the American hip-hop community and culture. Rapper Nelly released a song in 2021 entitled “Air Force 1s feat. Kyjuan, Ali, and Murphy Lee”. The chorus to his #3 billboard song is “Give me two pairs/I need two pairs/So I can get to stompin’ in my Air Force Ones,” and it’s actually pretty much catchy. This brought in even more collabs between famous American rappers and Nike, including Jay Z, Fat Joe, Young Jeezy, which lead this sneaker to be associated with the American gang culture. Therefore, the sneaker raised in popularity in 2000s resulting in being seen everywhere.
Over the past couple of years, the Nike 1 Air Force 1 has seen tremendous increase in recognition on a worldwide scale. This is primarily as a result of frequently changing fashion trends and the marketing strategy. As the silhouette began slipping away from shelves in a record time, more and more high-end luxury brands began to collaborate with Nike to release limited quantity series (Off-White x Air Force 1, Supreme x Air Force 1, etc.). The Nike Air Force brand has produced new models along with new colorways that are gaining traction.
The Air Force 1 Low model has certainly kept its status as a legendary model ever since it’s launching and they are still on top of its game, being seen on the feet of athletes, singers, actors and famous models. The sneaker continues to be at the spotlight of fashion, as it remains to rapidly sell out create brand-new versions.
