The term "O.G." gets thrown around a lot in sneaker discussions, but there are few models with the history of the Nike Air Force 1. Designed by Bruce Kilgore and originally released in 1982, the Air Force 1 has withstood the test of time and been adapted from a on-court basketball sneaker to a must-have in any sneakerhead's closet.
The only problem is the majority of Nike Air Force 1 releases in recent years have left a lot to be desired. Cheaper materials, inaccurate shapes, and gaudy colorways have plagued the silhouette, but Nike is finally giving the AF1 the treatment it deserves with this vintage-styled high top.
These Air Force 1 Highs are built with a premium leather that is a noticeable upgrade from recent AF1 offerings. A metallic silver Swoosh and off-white midsole add some old school flavor, while even the heel's Nike branding has been given an O.G. treatment. They also come equipped with interchangeable white and grey ankle straps.
Surprisingly, these lasted through the weekend, but they probably won't be available for much longer. Cop a pair now from Nike while you have a chance. Retail is $140.
