One of the most iconic shoes in the history of the brand, the Air Force 1 gets a new iteration this year. It is now paired with what is considered to be the lightest and most comfortable material for shoes today: none other than Nike's own breathable and lightweight Flyknit material.
This newest version of the 34-year-old sneaker is the lightest Air Force 1 ever as it is now half the weight of the original. It is also the first Flyknit shoe to incorporate leather material for its swoosh and also the first one to have Flywire for lacing and a seamless textile upper.
With deep roots both in basketball and street culture, the AF 1 truly remains one of Nike's most recognizable silhouettes. This year's version is expected to usher the iconic shoe into the future while bringing its legacy, use, and symbolism together with it.
