The Air Force 1 is the most popular sneaker ever made. Am I exaggerating? I don’t think so. How many shoe models can you name that have their own 1 hour long documentary? Yeah, thought so. Last summer Thibaut de Longeville directed a movie to tell the story of the sneakers known as “Uptowns“- narrated by KRS-One. This particular model was introduced by Nike 25 years ago and has become a standard of cultural style as well as a collector’s object, going through many mutations over the years.
For the 2011 Winter/Fall, Nike released their Air Force 1 Hyperfuse line ft. Electric Yellow – a neon color so bright it stings your eyes. This shoe obviously got the confidence to shine.
