The perfect marriage of court and culture, Nike is honoring the Air Force 1 with a pinnacle footwear collection as the shoe approaches its 30th birthday. Launching March 3, the Nike Air Force 1 Pearl Collection begins with three colorways and premium design details representing the shoe's three-decade legacy.

As the first basketball shoe to feature the Nike Air Max unit, the Air Force 1 has a regal and timeless quality symbolic of its namesake airplane. As always at Nike, innovation is at the heart of design, and the collection combines modernized footwear technologies with the classic silhouette.

The first colorway within the collection is the Air Force 1 Lux MX Air ‘08 featuring a full-length visible Air Max unit, a first for the AF1, with a Mother of Pearl-inspired reflectivity throughout the upper. It’s inspired by the original colorway and remixed with Vac-Tech construction. The second is a low top featuring a black denim upper, ice outsole, premium leather accents and the first denim wrapped midsole in a AF1. The final drop is a low top with an all white reflective upper, translucent milky-white midsole and is a crisp modernization of a classic.

Each of the styles within the collection carry some consistent design cues including Mother of Pearl-finished deubres and aglets for the laces, retro AF1 grid graphic on the sockliner, and special edition pearlized finished box with commemorative tissue wrapping.
