The original AF-1 was a heavyweight champion of hoops and hip-hop. But this time around the Nike Air Force 1 Elite Men’s Shoe goes super light and cushiony, bringing some of those Nike running shoe secrets to a big, beefy b’ball look. The Outsole has an OG cupsole look with a light and flexible feel. The upper is a smooth leather and mesh quarter for that iconic AF-1 look circa 1982. For the first time ever there's now a visible Max Air unit in the heel.
