Nike Air Force 1 High, Low & Mid Tops

At its release, the Nike Air Force 1 High shoe in white/gray was a technological marvel for basketball players. Previously, shoes were flexible but had no cushioning, so every step was complex. With the introduction of Nike Air technology and a cupsole design, the Air Force 1 was a revolution in comfort and durability. Players found that they could extend their practice sessions and maintain focus on the game thanks to shoes that only lasted longer and provided substantial support to their feet. The inclusion of a variable-width lacing system added an extra layer of appeal for basketball players truly dedicated to improving their on-court performance.


The Nike Air Force 1 Low made its debut in 1983, quickly becoming a favorite for both on-court performance and everyday casual wear. However, it was not until the mid-90s that the iconic white/white leather version was released. The white/white version gained immense popularity in the late '90s, thanks to notable artists and rappers. It experienced a resurgence in 2017 with a re-release commemorating the 35th anniversary of the AF1.


The distinctive ankle strap, originally featured on the original Nike Air Force 1 High, was re-introduced in the mid-2000s with the introduction of the Nike Air Force 1 Mid.

Everlasting Influence

Air Force 1 Nike shoes have shaped trends and tactics in the sneaker culture. After being released again in 1986, the Air Force 1 sneaker became the first retro edition shoes. Before this, most shoes were discontinued after a year and were not released. The credit for this transformation goes to AF1's dedicated fan base in Baltimore, as well as in New York, Philadelphia, and nearby regions.

The concept of exclusivity, which pairs effortlessly with sneaker culture today, originated with the Nike Air Force 1 Sneaker. As the shoe gained immense popularity on basketball courts and in street fashion, Nike strategically started limiting which retailers could carry colorways, such as the iconic white/white Air Force 1 Low. This move helped in maintaining the status of the Nike Air Force One Shoes. Tops and Bottoms is offering 100 % authentic Nike Air Force 1 Sneakers.
