A hardwood icon gets remixed for the modern era in the Nike Air Force 1 UltraForce Mid Men's Shoe, featuring a breathable, easy-on bootie construction and ultralight cushioning that bring the classic to new levels of street-ready comfort.
A one-piece internal bootie with a mesh overlay helps keep your feet cool and allows you to put the shoe on and take it off easily.
The Ultra midsole is cored out in key areas for an incredibly lightweight, flexible feel. The durable foam doubles as an outsole, dramatically reducing the shoe’s overall weight to make it the lightest Air Force 1 yet.
Leather overlays add durability and pay tribute to classic AF1 design lines.

Air Force 1 Origins
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the blacktop to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Nike Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
