Year Released: 1997

Let's be honest, the Air Force 1 Mid gets no love. But in early 1997, Nike added a subtle element to the Mid that would change things forever. The Mid was the first to receive the "NYC" logo that paid tribute to the city that started the Air Force 1 craze. The all black versions may have been first to display the new logo on the ankle strap but the navy and orange Syracuse-like color combo is one that few will forget.
