Nike Air Force 1 “White Bag”: A tribute to New York

Nike Air Force 1 “White Bag”: The classic gets a new color scheme

The Nike Air Force 1 appeared for the first time in 1982. It was the first basketball shoe to feature the then revolutionary “Nike Air” technology. The soft, springy cushioning and legendary style created a real hype about the Air Force 1, which continues to this day. It quickly made it from the hall parquet to the streets of the world.

Air Force 1 has been closely associated with New York City since its inception. Nike celebrates this connection with a homage to the bodegas, small mom and pop shops that are so dear to New Yorkers’ hearts, in the form of the Air Force 1 “White Bag”. The color scheme is inspired by the plastic bags used by these small grocery stores across town. (Also read: Nike Air Force 1: New model scores with proven design and fresh details)
