Classic Nike Air Force One low in white on white

Most wardrobes can claim to play host to at least one pair of Nike Air Force 1s. They’re the sneaks that stand the test of time – and with almost 2000 varieties having been produced, we’re pretty sure the AF1 will never go out of style. In his ode to the iconic shoe ‘Air Force Ones’, Nelly said ‘Now don’t nothing get the hype on first sight like white on white, them three quarters them lows they all tight.’ We hear ya. Whether you bow down to the white-out low classics, or opt for crazy colour-ways of hi styles, we’ve got something that’ll be right up your street.

Pretty much every month, a trainer makes a come-back – whether it’s adidas Stan Smiths or Reebok Classics, the sneaker scene loves a retro-revival. Jump all the way back to 1986 and you’ll find that it was Nike that started the whole retro-ing trend. When the brand launched the Air Force 1 in 1982 they couldn’t have predicted its success, and as was the norm back then, the trainer was quickly discontinued after only two years.

The people weren’t happy though – the Air Force One had triggered the start of a cultural movement. On the East Coast of the USA, if you weren’t wearing AF1’s you would have been better off just staying in the house. So, in 1986, much to the delight on sneaker-freaks everywhere, Nike made a move that was pretty bold for the time and brought the AF1 back.

Since then, the AF1 has become synonymous with the hip-hop culture which first embraced it, has gained loyal followers world-wide, and has firmly cemented its place as the highest selling athletic shoe of all time. Whether it’s your favourite noughties rap-stars like Nelly and Busta Rhymes, the likes of A$ap Rocky and Drake or the Hadid sisters and their ‘squad’, everyone has worn – and is still wearing – the mighty Nike air force one.

Trust us, this trainer is a pretty sound investment.
