Men's Nike Air Force 1 Low Royal Sneakers
It’s hard to believe that the Nike Air Force 1 Low and Air Jordan 1 were only a few years apart, each shoe creating a dynamic change to basketball footwear history. The Nike Air Force 1‘s staying power as an iconic lifestyle selection is a testament to the simplicity of the design and Nike Sportswear’s ability to continue to push enticing colorway offerings like this summer’s upcoming J-Pack featuring translations of the AJ1’s most sought after OG looks. The “Royal” pair accomplishes this feat thanks to a combination of Star Blue leather panels and a black base for a nod at Nike’s early basketball progression. Be sure to check out more on-feet looks below and let us know if you plan on picking up a pair when these drop later in May 2016.
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW “ROYAL”
Color: Black/Star Blue/White
Style Code: 820266-010
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was coined after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. 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 Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
