When Bruce Kilgore designed Nike’s Air Force Ones in 1982, he couldn’t have possibly known that his creation would not only change the game of basketball but set into motion a fashion trend that would thrive for more than three and a half decades after the sneaker’s release.
The Air Force One was the first basketball-specific shoe Nike created. It featured a simple silhouette, sturdy construction, and first-class cushioning in the form of a Max Air unit located in the shoe’s heel.

Today, the Air Force 1 is the company’s best-selling shoe of all time.
