Nike Air Force 1 'Colour of the Month'

Being one of the key players of authentic sneaker communities here at HANON for the last three decades, telling the story and focusing on celebrating the heritage of silhouettes is paramount for us. It's past, meets present, and into the future.

We take a look at the cultural importance of the Air Force 1 with the 'Colour of the Month' series at HANON as we showcase new voices and talents, all while storytelling the anniversary of an icon.

We caught up with HANON team member Cameron this week to document how he explores the city through his creative passion of photography.

This special edition Air Force 1 celebrates its 40th birthday. We take a look at a little-known piece of Nike history - the original 'Colour of the Month' series, back in 1984, may have saved the AF-1 from extinction.

A reissue was uncertain in the shoe's early days, but sport shops in Baltimore saw them selling like hot cakes and knew the AF-1 would become synonymous with street fashion and culture. So, they asked for custom colours to sell from their shop fronts, and the rest is history. From the pristine materials to the crisp University Red and White colourway, plus the shoe-cleaning toothbrush to keep them looking fresh, these kicks deliver a lesson in coveted off-court style. Every time you rock your AF-1s, make sure you think of the visionary shopkeepers in Baltimore that made it all happen.
