The Best Sneaker In Red Suede

The year was 1982. An athletic shoe company was in it's infancy and known primarily for it running and track and field shoes. The athletic shoe market was dominated globally by the sneaker giant Adidas. This young athletic shoe company was living in the shadows of several larger companies and looking to make it big in the sneaker word. But this fledgling company needed a shoe that would place them sqaurely in the mainstream of the sneaker marketplace. What they needed was a shoe that would create a strong prescence and shape a credible identitiy for their company. What single shoe could possibly accomplish such a feat of epic proportions?

The Nike Air Force One. The shoe that put Nike on the sneaker map. The shoe that spawned many imitators but could not be duplicated. The shoe that Nike originally created as a basketball shoe. The shoe that has been released is so many different colorways that it is virtually impossible to put a number on the amount of versions it has been released in. The shoe that is named after the aircraft that is used by the President of the United States. The shoe that made Nike the shoe giant it is today.

In 1982 Nike and designer Bruce Kilgore created the Nike Air Force One, a shoe that is widely considered the best sneaker ever created. It was the first Nike shoe to contain an Air Technology. The Air Force One was originally intended to create a prescence within the basketball shoe market. A mid-cut version and high- top version with a velcro strap of this shoe was made for the hardcourt.  Unfortunately, the Air Force One was just too heavy and didn't provide enough lateral stability needed by basketball players. This did not turn out to be a pair of Nike shoes for basketball.  The Air Force One in low-cut form , however,  because of it's timeless design and superior look did turn out to be the most popular casual sneaker ever made.

The Nike Air Force One has just been released in an all red, eye-popping suede edition.  Air Force One's have been released in a wide variety of materials. Denim, patent, and horse hair have all been featured on the upper. But very few materials are better on a Nike Air Force One than suede. And this new one has plenty of that. The varsity red colored suede on the upper will turn heads. And break necks. Black compliments the upper and is featured on the outsole, heel tab, and the Nike Air label at the top of the tongue.

The best sneaker ever made just dropped again, and in a must have colorway. This one is definitely a keeper. Much like the first Air Force One dropped in 1982.
