Year released: 2005

The Air Force 1's appeal isn't confined to the East Coast; Los Angeles appreciates the design to some degree, too, and tattoo legend Mister Cartoon's take on the shoe was something very different. Cartoon’s ultra detailed needle-to-the-skin skills are famed, and laser technology captured his aesthetic on leather perfectly. A nearly impossible to obtain Hyperstrike (50 raffled and 50 given to friends and family) edition was released first celebrating Mexico, his home city of L.A., and the traditions Cartoon is steeped in across the upper and forefoot. A slightly altered version was released shortly afterwards and was, once again, confined to L.A. In 2009, the shoe dropped once again in black and yellow LIVESTRONG colors as part of Nike’s cancer charity initiative.
