Created by the legendary designer Bruce Kilgore, the Air Force 1 first launched in 1982, descending onto basketball courts as the first shoe to feature a full-length Nike Air unit in the sole and revolutionising the game with its improved cushioning.
It didn’t take long for the Air Force 1 to find its feet in the fashion world, becoming a favoured staple in the New York hip-hop scene and going on to cement itself as a coveted streetwear essential.
Though little has changed in its design over the years, the popularity of the Air Force 1 continues to grow and over 1700 colourways have been produced since its initial release, as well as many high-profile collaborations and limited edition runs.
Nike’s Utility collection revitalises designs with a new utilitarian style that’s ready to shake up the streets, using more durable materials and adding extra functionality for a modern, fashion-forward look.
The Nike Air Force 1 LV8 Utility low-top trainers live up to their name with their slightly elevated sole and stay true to the original with a timeless silhouette, toe perforations and premium leather uppers for that classic hoops style.
The real deal here is the nod to Kilgore’s original ’82 design with the sketched detailing, such as the Swoosh and Nike Air cushioning graphics, offering up an artsy, unique tribute to this sneaker’s roots.
