Considered to be 1 of only 25 pairs, the Nike Air Force 1 Low Lux ‘Alligator’ features a full alligator skin upper, leather lining and leather midsole.  


The Air Force 1, arguably Nike’s most iconic sneaker, is in many regards, the first of its kind. 


Previously realized in running shoes, the introduction of Nike’s ‘Air’ technology in the midsole was a revolutionary concept for basketball sneakers. Tasked with bringing the concept to life, designer Bruce Kilgore and an aerospace engineer brought the project to fruition with a hiking boot inspired, ankle strapped, high top. Kilgore’s first basketball sneaker, the Air Force 1 was brought to market in 1982. 


Today, through hyped collaborations, unparalleled versatility, and ubiquity in popular culture, Air Force 1s continue to be a fan favorite around the world and one of Nike’s all time best selling sneakers.
