      Nike Air Force 1s were originally created in the 1980’s and now have made a reappearance stronger than ever in 2019. Most parents remember these shoes being what they wore back in the day.

    The Nike Air Force 1s were originally created in 1983 to be a basketball shoe. Bruce Kilgore, the legendary designer of this shoe, made these shoes so they had a pocket filled with air in the heel for cushioning and support and a circular outsole pattern giving the players use of pivot move in the post. Players really seemed to like the comfort of these shoes while playing basketball.

    The pure white Air Force 1’s seem to be the most popular of the variety of colors and designs they have to offer this year. With the holiday season just around the corner and a lot of christmas shopping being done, most people can’t get their hands on these shoes. When I was at the mall on my search for the white platforms, all of the stores were sold out. I went to Finish Line, Footlocker, Journeys, and even looked online and had no luck. 

I remember I was at a store in the mall one day with my mom and she pointed out the Nike Air Force 1s to me and my instant reaction was that I would never wear them. My mom said they used to be her favorite shoes when she was my age. Here I am today with 4 pairs of them. I have two pairs of the original white ones, the white platforms, and a black pair with floral bottoms and a pink check. I find them to be very comfortable, like i’m walking on memory foam and with good support for a long day at school or work. I have had a pair for about two years now and they have held up very well. The only thing negative about them would be that they crease at the top and people don’t really like the look of that. These popular shoes are not only very comfortable, but they are very stylish and go with almost anything. They can be worn with comfortable outfits, casual outfits, and you even see people wearing these to fancier functions such as dances with dresses. 

Air Force ones are relatively cheap in price, considering they are Nike shoes. The white ones are only $99.00. I really love my Nike Air Force 1’s and wear them most days to school or out because they match with any outfit. 

Nike Air Force 1’s are a really good option for something to wear to school, work, or just out and about. They provide comfort, support, and style. I highly suggest people to get a pear of these wonderful shoes.
