Air Force

      Basketball shoes initially used Air cushioning when Nike unveiled the Air Force 1 in 1982. When hip-hop musicians promoted the silhouette through lyrics and videos, the fashion evolved from an on-court performance to an off-court look. With releases like the Air Force 1 '07 "Triple White," Tiffany x Air Force 1 Low "1837," and Jackie Robinson AF 1s, the Air Force 1 is now an uncontested legend.
