Nike unisex standard fit “Obsidian” blue leather and textile low top retro basketball sneaker. Features a GORE-TEX® lining for water and wind-resistant performance. Named after the plane of the President of the United States of America, the Nike Air Force 1 High debuted in 1982, with the low top sneaker releasing a year later. Designed by Bruce Kilgore, the Air Force 1 was not only the first Nike basketball sneaker to utilize Air cushioning, it was also one of the first to sport a cup sole. Although the sneaker was discontinued in 1984, it was soon rereleased in 1986, and has since become the best-selling and most iconic basketball sneaker on the planet.
