The Nike Air Force 1 High 07: A timeless hoops look
The Nike Air Force 1 High 07 Men's Shoe is an updated version of the original released in 1982 as a tribute to the US president's world-famous airplane. Today, it incorporates the same hoops-inspired performance features of its predecessor while adding fresh design details for a sleeker look.
- Leather upper with ankle strap for enhanced support
- Soft yet durable midsole with full-length Air Sole unit for superior cushioning
- Rubber outsole with pivot point for traction and durability
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was coined after Air Force One-the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionising the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the blacktop to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Air technology takes a back seat to the shoe's status as an icon.
Nike AirMore than 30 years ago, a revolutionary idea raised the standards in sneaker comfort: Use the lightest cushioning material there is—air. Nike Air units work by trapping air molecules inside a durable urethane shell. With each footstrike, the air unit compresses to reduce the force of impact, then immediately recovers its shape to be ready for the next landing. Nike Air units are built to last, so the cushioning properties hold steady for the life of the shoe.
