When I was little I used to think the world was actually black and white in the old days.

30 years of Air Force 1

POSTED BY NickJ ON 06 SEP 2012 @ 03:37 PM
Designed by Bruce Kilgore in 1982 and the first Nike to employ the 'Air' technology, the legendary Air Force 1 is celebrating its 30th birthday this year.

With over 1,500 incarnations in its three decades of existence and an earning power of nearly $800 million USD a year, the AF1 is seriously worthy of a massive cake and lots of huzzahs (Kanye, Nas, Rakim and KRS-One even made a song about them!!).


But, since it's a shoe and shoes don't eat cake and you'd look like a knob if you were huzzahing a piece of footwear, Nike have done something else in its honour - the 1thology interactive experience. 

The 1thology experience showcases pretty much the entire AF1 collection by year, style, color or material. Sneaker freaks get the chance to build a virtual, digital collection of Air Force 1's, while browsing other fellow freakers collections.

Essentially its a total nerd out fest for kicks. That's cool. We spend all day on the internets, we're giant nerds...
