The Nike Air Force 1 stepped onto the scene in 1982 as a revolutionary basketball shoe bringing Nike Air cushioning to the court. The shoe was etched into history on the feet of NBA Champion Moses Malone and faded away until popular demand got back the shoe back just two years later.
The iconic Air Force 1 redefined sneakers in looks, design, and culture as the classic celebrates 40 years of legacy.
Celebrating 40 years of pushing sport and fashion boundaries, these commemorative Air Force 1s mix elements from beloved launches to highlight the timeless design’s place in sneaker history. Gold accents, a debossed *40* on the heel, and an honorary tongue label are just a few of the embellishments inviting you to the party. Completing the look, crisp leather in bold colors delivers a grand finale. Happy 40th anniversary to the iconic Air Force 1!
