Over the past ten months, the sneaker community has been celebrating 40 years since Bruce Kilgore officially revealed the Air Force 1 to the world. No doubt one of the most iconic basketball shoes of all time, the Beaverton sportswear giant has been releasing a vast selection of commemorative colorways to mark this massive milestone, and now, we're getting yet another one with the Nike Air Force 1 Mid 40th Anniversary "Sail Brown Basalt."
Part of the "40th Anniversary" line, this AF1 arrives in a sail leather outfit that's smooth and sleek to the touch. Brown Basalt accents venture towards the Swoosh branding and tongue tag, while malachite green accents can also be found throughout for a look that is sure to turn heads. The year "82" is referenced along the insole as a nod to the year the Air Force 1 made its grand debut, and the number "40" is finely debossed on the heel, surrounded by a quarter of stars. Of course, you can't talk about these Forces without mentioning the premium gold hardware that decorates the top eyelets and dubrae, finalizing the truly one-of-a-kind release.
The Nike Air Force 1 Mid 40th Anniversary Sail Brown Basalt releases in Holiday 2022 in men's sizes for $140.
