Share This Page: Nike Air Force 1 - Independence Day The Nike Air Force 1 is named for the jetliner the President of the United States has exclusive use of, making this iconic kick patriotic by nature. But now, just in time for the Fourth of July, the AF1 is getting the stars and stripes treatment. The leather upper has a distressed star field that stretches from the toe to the side panels, which meet the red and white stripes that start around the heel of the shoe. Red bleeds into the white bands to create a vintage look that celebrates the American spirit. The Swoosh, perforated toe box and sock liner all appear in dazzling white, and a black rubber outsole paired with a vulcanized white midsole keep the American flag design as the focus. These drop Friday, June 27, at $90 online and in select City Gear stores. Make sure you've got the freshest kicks just in time for the July 4th barbecue!
