Origins of the Air Force 1
Launched in 1982, the AF1 was the first basketball shoe to feature Nike Air technology. She revolutionized the sport while quickly achieving incredible success around the world. Today, the Air Force 1 remains true to its roots with the same soft, dynamic cushioning that changed sneaker history.
EXCEED THE LIMITS OF THE POSSIBLE
Experience a new wave of comfort and style with the Nike Air Force 1 Fontanka, the original basketball shoe that combines high fashion and everyday style. With its elevated midsole, redesigned outsole and multi-layered upper in soft suede and elaborate stitching, it perfectly embodies the chaos of underground creativity. To top it all off, the ultra-soft React foam “cassette” in the heel offers a bold look.
This design celebrates the rebellious underground world of the rave scene and draws inspiration from activists who pushed the boundaries of the established order to create a better, more inclusive world.
