A closer look at the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit

Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once basketball shoe was coined after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. 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 Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon. The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Men's Shoe weighs 50 percent less than the '82 hoops original thanks to its all-new, ultra-breathable Nike Flyknit upper. Strategically crafted Flyknit panels add dimension while remaining true to the AF1 design aesthetic.

 Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock. Nike embarked on a four-year mission with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—was refined. The result is a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper. 

The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit details includes:

  • Adjustable ankle strap with a hook-and-loop closure for a locked-down fit 
  • Foam collar for a fit like the original 
  • Leather heel tab and tongue for a premium look 
  • Pivot points for smooth multi-directional transitions 
  • Rubber pods under the toe and heel for durability
