The 25 Coolest Sneakers in Russ Bengtson's Office

2. Nike Air Force Zero

My favorite Air Force 1s have always been the highs, and the holy grail has always been an original pair from 1982, AKA the Air Force Zeros. Differentiated by a mesh sidepanel and an unperfed toebox, the Air Force Zero was only offered in white and silver and wasn't easy to find even then. So when this poorly listed pair of size 15s came up on eBay not too long ago, I was all over them. Clearly a sample pair made up for some player somewhere, this pair featured an early custom touch — a red Swoosh. Bobby Jones, your shoes are ready.
