An icon gets remixed for the modern era in the Nike Air Force 1 UltraForce Mid. Shoes feature a breathable, easy-on bootie, ultralight cushioning and reflective accents that bring the classic to new levels of street-ready comfort.
The Ultra midsole is improved in key areas for an incredibly lightweight, flexible feel. The durable foam doubles as an outsole, dramatically reducing the shoe’s overall weight to make it the lightest Air Force 1 yet.
Leather overlays add durability and pay tribute to classic AF1 design lines.
BACK TO THE ROOTS
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One, the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing 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 Nike Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
