Year: 2004

The JD Sports Air Force 1 rollout strikes again. We're sure that nobody in the UK ever noticed that these were a Portland-alike colorway, but they were still conservative enough to get the everyman £. The tumbled leather was a nice touch and the stitched Swoosh, Oregon map and basketball jersey cues reinforced the Trail Blazers inspiration. As with some great NYC-themed editions, nobody really knew why something so US-centric was a UK-only drop, but that was part of the shoe's charm.
