Nike Air Force 1
The Air Force 1 is another shoe which gained its God-status after St. Louis rapper Nelly put out the bouncy tribute to the already iconic shoe. The clean and smooth silhouette of an all white leather Air Force 1 can’t be matched by any other sneaker. The advent of visible airbags inside the soles of sneakers made the Force 1 somewhat dated. In the early 90s these shoes were now cheap and common, which made them a favorite for heads who scrambled hard for that quick cash. Being hot on the streets made them a favorite for rappers who liked to act like they still had a connection to the kids on the streets. Always remember that Hip-Hop comes from the streets and then moves upwards.
