The history of the Air Force 1 is a long and complicated one. The shoe was first released in 1982 and was designed by Bruce Kilgore. It was originally intended as a basketball shoe, but quickly became popular among hip-hop artists and non-athletes alike. The shoe was named after Air Force One, the plane that carries the President of the United States. In the early 2000s, the Air Force 1 experienced a resurgence in popularity, thanks in part to customizers. Fast-forward to the mid 2000’s and now what you have is even more customs, and this Comic Air Force 1 Mid by Cassy looks incredible.
