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 spent the afternoon with HANON team member Nick as he showed us around his university campus in Aberdeen after a morning shift at our shop on The Green.
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. This anniversary edition of the AF1 features stitched overlays, crisp leather and even comes with a handy shoe cleaning tool to keep you looking fresh. The Nike Air Force 1 Low Retro delivers a near 1:1 remake of the original and that famous Nike Air cushioning in the sole unit continues to deliver first class comfort. Happy anniversary.
