The Nike Air Force 1 High LV8 redefines a classic silhouette by adding work boot inspired details to update the legacy of the coveted silhouette.
Dating back to the 1980's, this once basketball shoe was originally named the Air Force One- the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. It was the first basketball shoe to institute Nike Air which revolutionized the sport for players like Charles Barkley and Moses Malone while rapidly gaining popularity in the core of hip-hop culture.
Today, the latest iteration stays true to its roots, while re-imagining the coveted shoe's status symbol and iconic role in shoe culture. The entire shoe is laced in a flax color scheme, coupled with leather and regrind synthetic upper for comfort-ability. Antique- style brass lace clips give the shoe a vintage feel juxtaposed with the rubber outsole for durability and traction, making this iteration the perfect blend of vintage style and new age performance.
The Nike Air Force 1 High LV8 (GS) is retailed at $95 and can be purchased at selected retailers like sneakerpolitics.
