Originally released in 1982, the Air Force 1 is named after the presidential aircraft. Designed by Bruce Kilgore, it was the first basketball shoe to feature revolutionary Nike Air technology. Today it remains as one of Nike’s most iconic, best selling sneakers. The Air Force 1’s ability to be the perfect blank canvas for iconic designs and collaborations has established it as one of the most desirable models for sneaker collectors.


This rare pair is a 2009 collaboration between Nike and Undefeated in commemoration of the hit HBO television show Entourage. The Gold Fukijama Air Force 1 Low was the second shoe Undefeated and Nike designed in honor of the show. It was made in addition to the university blue – and less rare – Fukijama Air Force 1 featured in the same episode. 


In the show, Salvator “Turtle” Asante spends an entire episode devoted to hunting down the Fukijama Air Force 1. Though Fukijama is a fictional artist, the sneakers pop culture history has led it to be a much sought after item for collectors. The striking Gold Fukijama Air Force 1 features a laser-etched design on metallic gold leather panels and black leather Nike Swooshes. The tongue and heel feature special UNDFTD graphics.


The pair is considered to be one of Nike’s most important design works in the long history of the model.
