It's been exactly 40 years since Bruce Kilgore took the wraps off the legendary Air Force 1, and to celebrate this massive milestone, the Beaverton sportswear giant has been dropping a ton of special edition colorways over the past few months, including the Nike Air Force 1 Mid 40th Anniversary "Blue Jay" that has just been announced. Stuffed with cool details, let's get up close and take a look at all of them.

The first thing that you'll notice about this AF1 is the striking blue jay leather construction that's as eye-catching as it gets. A clean sail Swoosh shoots across the lateral and medial side panels, while contrast yellow ochre accents can also be found throughout. The year "82" is printed on the insoles as a nod to when the Air Force 1 made its grand debut, and the number "40" is finely debossed around the heel, surrounded by a quartet of stars. Of course, you can't talk about this Air Force 1 Mid without mentioning all of the gold hardware that can be seen across the upper, offering a luxe look and feel.

The Nike Air Force 1 Mid 40th Anniversary Blue Jay is set to release in Holiday 2022 in men's sizes for $140. Expected to be available via Nike, the SNKRS app, and select online and in-store retailers, this was made for the Swoosh fans out there.
