The saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." If Nike adhered to that attitude, then the Swoosh wouldn't be known for all its innovation over the last few decades. 

One model, in particular, that Nike is fond of tweaking is their iconic Air Force 1. Designed by Bruce Kilgore and originally released in 1982, the AF1 has grown to be one of the most revered sneakers in history with a passionate and loyal fan base. Fast forward 32 years and the Nike is updating its classic once again.

With all the development in modern technology, the AF1 hasn't exactly been known to be part of that conversation. For over 30 years, fans have come to expect certain things from the shoe. Albeit, the shoe has gone some makeovers over the past few years, but for the most part, 'heads know what they're getting when they rock the AF1.

Expect to be surprised. Nike has updated the AF1 with an emphasis on comfort and materials. Designated with the CMFT tag, Nike incorporated Phylon technology for a, you guessed it, more comfortable ride and upgraded the materials for a more premium look and finish. For its initial release, the AF1 comes in both Low and Mid options in two classic colorways, "All White" and "Black/White."

With Nike's recent emphasis on the AF1 and the demand for the model slowly growing once again, you don't want to sleep on this release.
