Description

NIKE, NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW, SIZE 9.5

Rubber, Cotton, Leather

2004

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.


Rapper Eminem and Nike have collaborated on some of the most sought after sneakers to date. In 2004, the Air Force 1 Low ‘Shady Records’ was released by Nike to commemorate rapper Eminem as a friends-and family-exclusive for him and his crew. 


The design features a low-top AF1 with a clean white leather upper. The pair is accented with a Shady Records logo in contrasting black on the heel, and additional branding can be found on the tongue tag, sockliner and beneath the outsole.
