Latest Pickup: Nike Air Force 1 By You

It's no coincidence that Nike is reviving its beloved classic, the Nike Air Force 1, in numerous versions. The legendary silhouette turns 40 this year! That's right, because Bruce Kilgore designed the sneaker in 1982. Of course, the sportswear manufacturer from Beaverton will not miss this anniversary and will therefore present several special versions.

Not only old friends were invited to the birthday, but also new partners got a chance to create their own version of the AF1. Billie Eilish, for example, designed a totally crazy Nike Air Force 1 High that has several Velcro straps. Rumour has it that Nike and the singer-songwriter are even working on a second Nike Air Force 1 as we speak.

Another highlight marking the 40th anniversary of the Nike Air Force 1 is that Louis Vuitton is preparing a strictly limited edition multi-part Air Force 1 collection. The models appear in different colourways and were originally designed by Virgil Abloh. Typical off-white and LV details adorn the nine sneakers from the Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 collection.

But now it's up to you as designers, because Nike is giving you the chance to design your own sneaker with the Air Force 1 By You. We did the same and present our sneaker to you here.

Nike Air Force 1 By You - Inspired by the OG

Over the last 40 years, Nike has designed around 2,000 colourways of the Nike Air Force 1. The silhouette has been combined with different materials, details and colours. Among the hottest AF1s are probably the clean versions like the "Triple White". It is reminiscent of the first edition, which was released for the first time in 1982.

We have also been inspired by the first colourway and designed a Nike Air Force 1 By You that strongly resembles the classic. Its high-quality base made of premium leather is completely white. The same material is also used for the overlays and tongues to get a clean style. In addition, the colourway can be combined very well with many outfits.

Coloured swooshes and tongue labels are a tribute to the classic Nike Air Force 1. Our version gets black suede swooshes that match the colour of the tongue labels and heel patches. Lastly, we've given our Nike Air Force 1 By You a white Air sole that perfectly rounds out the basketball-inspired heritage design.

Endless Options for Your Own Legacy

The Nike Air Force 1 is an unbeatable classic. But it's not just the style that's legendary, the technology used has also been winning over sneakerheads for 40 years. Above all, the comfortable Air damping in the sole supports you with every step. It provides pleasant impact protection and a soft shoe collar gives the Nike Air Force 1 By You a soft feel.

Other benefits also include perforations at the front for enhanced breathability and premium material construction. Premium leather and premium suede guarantee high durability, while the sole promises good traction. The latter can also be made of normal solid rubber or speckled Nike Grind rubber.
