25 Years Old

In 1982, Nike released the Air Force 1, a basketball shoe that featured a revolutionary technological innovation: a pocket of air in the heel for cushioning and support. The shoe, although expensive at $89.95, was an immediate hit among players, from the N.B.A. to the playground, with professionals like Moses Malone and Michael Cooper endorsing them and wearing them during games.
Twenty-five years later, Air Force 25th ,only Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace still wears the shoe in the N.B.A. But the Air Force 1, now priced at $80 for the basic white-on-white, is a far better seller than when it was introduced. Largely because of its popularity off the court, it has become the best-selling sneaker ever with more than 1,800 color combinations, many in limited editions that can cost thousands of dollars.
Yet people are still unable to describe what has made the shoe so popular.

One of the keys to the Air Force 1 ’s popularity is that it comes in so many color combinations.
