The first iteration of the Nike AF1 featured air technology, which was new to the world of basketball.
The threaded outsole made it easier for players to move, a belt at the top of the shoe as well as a variable width lacing system worked to keep the shoe on the wearer’s foot while remaining comfortable.
AF1s designed for working out and exercise? To be honest, they could be used for exercising in a low impact matter. Maybe for walking, but honestly, AF1s are more for comfort, style and casual wear.
The Nike AF1 is one of the most recognizable sneakers in the game and, thankfully, one of the most comfortable Nike shoes as well.
The substantial sole doesn’t degrade and contains a hidden Air pocket for all-day comfort. While they’re a bit on the heavier side, they aren’t so clunky they become obstructive.
