The Nike Air Force 1 is one of those shoes that has elevated itself beyond the realms of sportswear—it's pretty much a icon in pop culture. Yet, despite its transcendence, Nike has never forgotten its humble beginnings as a simple Basketball sneaker.

2016 will see Bruce Kilgore's iconic design return to its basketball roots with this fresh-to-death Air Force 1 High. This iteration is definitely a throwback to the O.G. AF1's as it comes in a simple black/white colourway and is contrasted by the Wolf Grey strap and gum finish on the outsole, which is always a winner. Additionally, the net logo, placed in the bottom corner towards the heel, is a testament/acknowledgement to its humble beginnings on the hardwood.

There's still no release date on the Air Force 1 High but make sure you check back here to find out when and where you can get them.
