LEGENDARY STYLE, GREAT CUSHIONING.
The legend lives on in the Nike Air Force 1 Mid 06 Big Kids' Shoe, which stays true to its roots with iconic style, high-profile ankle support and Nike Air cushioning for all-day comfort and long-lasting wear.
Air Force 1 OriginsTranscending 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.
