Five Reasons Why You Should Buy a Pair of Nike Air Force Ones Right Now


See there aren’t many sneakers that can stand the test of time like a good ol’ pair of white-on-white high-top Nike Air Force 1s (often referred to as Uptowns). And if you think for a second these timeless kicks fell off the lifestyle grid, think again. Though it’s unfair to call it a comeback because let’s face it, these shoes never really went out of style—especially to the real sneakerheads— but for the past few months the classic high-tops have been spotted on the feet of artists like A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar and even our 2013 Freshman cover boy Travi$ Scott. So is a renaissance of the Bruce Kilgore-created sneakers in order? We’ll let you decide. But if anything, it’s safe to say that the all-white Nike AF1s have officially moved from the streets to high fashion. With spring in full bloom and summer sitting around the corner, we give you the Five Reasons Why You Should Cop a Pair of Air Force 1s Right Now.—Ralph Bristout (@RalphieBlackmon)
