From the ground up

The iconic Air Force 1 is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. In anticipation of one of Nike’s most beloved silhouettes, the brand has decided to honor the achievement by introducing new colorways and collabs. Take recent collaborations with brands such as CdG and Supreme, or the brand’s introduction of new bold logos. Boom!

Change is afoot, and while there’s nothing like copping a piece of history, there’s also nothing like celebrating it with new merchandise. Whether it’s the various VLONE AF-1s, the SF AF-1 Boot that Nike released in not one but many different colorways, the re-release of the beloved Carnival AF-1s, or general releases from the Swoosh, the 1982 classic is back in the spotlight.

Here are 9 of our favorite Air Force 1s to cop before they become historical relics, by sneaker standards that is.
