Probably NIKE's biggest classic, the AIR FORCE 1. When it first came out in 1982, it didn't only revolutionize the basketball sneaker game – it revolutionized the sneaker game in general. Thanks to a never before witnessed wearing comfort, it became one of the first sneakers to be regarded as a collector's item. To maintain the hype, releasing numerous colorways was one of few suggestions. And it turned out to be the best one possible. With over 1700 different variations the Air Force 1 is a must-have for every sneakerhead. There certainly is something for every taste and prefence – for every occasion and circumstance. For those who like to get sporty every now and then – and for those, well, who don't. In case you weren't ever able to decide between AF1 and Vandal, then consider that dillema as non-existent from now on. By the way, both originate in the 80s, hence their excellent compatibility. To allow for the best adaptation, a black canvas upper was added to the classic AF1 silhoutte. Therefore a slight but efficient transition between both shoes was created. In order to complete the look, Nike added a midsole out of sail. Once again, the Air Force 1 range has been expanded successfully.

Brand information: nike

When it comes to basketball, there is no way around Nike – the brand with the Swoosh belongs to the game like dunks, three-pointers and cross-overs. Whether in the NBA, European leagues or your neighborhood streetball court – the world’s largest manufacturer of sports equipment is a staple in all things basketball since the 1980s.
The Nike „Blazer“, released in 1973, was the company’s first sneaker designed specifically for basketball. While the shoe was very functional for its time and was worn by NBA scoring machine George „Iceman“ Gervin, Nike still was not able to step out of other sports companies’ shadows. Following models of the early 80s, like the now legendary „Air Force 1“ and „Dunk“ also did not manage the success the company had hoped for. That all changed when in 1984/85 Michael Jordan decided to conquer the NBA and the shoe game with Nike. While the „Blazer“ was Nike’s way of politely knocking on the door of the basketball-sneaker world, they blew it out of its frame with the success of „His Airness“ and the „Air Jordan 1“.

Nike is the frontrunner in basketball

Ever since then Nike changed the game of basketball. The triumph of the AJ1 was not only the birth of the iconic „Air Jordan“ - dynasty. It also paved the way for a variety of shoe lines like the Flight, Hyperdunk, Air Max and Foamposites. Today about 60 percent of the NBA’s players rock the Swoosh. Among them are some of the biggest names of the game: From Sir Charles Barkley in the 90s, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant in the 2000s, to Lebron James and Kevin Durant today – the superstars of the NBA achieve mindblowing feats wearing their signature Nike sneakers.
Nike not only specializes in shoes though. These days ballers can dress up in perfomance sportswear bearing the Swoosh from t-shirts to hoodies, sweat pants, shorts, sweat bands and socks. Wearing Nike you can be sure that while playing your next game not only will you be outfitted in highly functional and valuable gear – you will also look pretty damn good wetting jumpers from all over the court.
