2012 is AF1’s 30th Anniversary

Nike’s Air Force 1 is potentially the most legendary shoe known to man.
“Having debuted in 1982, the Nike Air Force 1 will enjoy its 30th birthday this year. The shoe was created by designer Bruce Kilgore and introduced as the first Nike basketball shoe to feature Air technology. They were originally worn by NBA players including Moses Malone, Mychal Thompson and Michael Cooper (and, until his retirement last year, the mercurial big man Rasheed Wallace).

Little has changed in the iconic sneaker that’s now been released in over 1,700 color combinations, with many more variations to come throughout the milestone year.” via RAW87.com

So, in honor of the sneaker’s 30th anniversary, here is your AF1 fix for the day:

30 pairs of AF1s celebrating 30 years of freshness. Footage was shot on Hollywood strip.
