In 1982, Bruce Kilgore designed the Nike Air Force 1, one of the most important sneakers within sneaker culture. The style was discontinued after only one year before it was reintroduced in 1986 in an all-white colorway. When worn in pristine condition, the all-white AF1 was a status symbol, securing its enduring position in sneaker history and culture. The white-on-white Air Force 1 quickly became a staple of streetwear, its popularity never wavering after decades on the market.
