AF 1 — the 1st basketball shoe to house Nike Air
In 1982, it was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood, to the blacktop, to the core of hip-hop culture.
A playful twist on a classic design, the Nike AF 1 Shadow has a layered upper, repeated graphics will make them think they're seeing double. A slightly exaggerated midsole makes the shoe instantly recognizable while also playing with proportions.
With 2 eyestays, 2 mudguards, 2 back tabs and 2 Swoosh designs, this shoe doubles down on the AF1 style. A foam midsole and grooved outsole ensure the shoe is lightweight, flexible and comfortable.
