The Nike Air Force 1 UltraForce Men's Shoe refines the original with a sleek upper and premium cushioning. LIGHTWEIGHT CUSHIONING The Ultra midsole is cored out 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.
Features • Textile upper with overlays for premium comfort • Encapsulated Air for lightweight cushioning • Durable rubber cupsole for traction AIR FORCE 1 ORIGINS 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.
