Drawing inspiration from its rich history, the Air Force 1 has been a platform for introducing new advancements in footwear. This particular iteration, the Air Force 1 Wild, is a fusion of basketball heritage and trail-inspired elements. It's evident that the design has roots in Bruce Kilgore’s iconic creation, but it also showcases influences from Nike Hike and Nike ACG, two categories from the '80s and '90s that marked Nike's foray into outdoor footwear. The shoe's upper is a blend of fabric and textile, and the sole has been updated from Kilgore’s 1982 design. Dominated by a "Wheat Gold" hue, the sneaker also features contrasting "Rugged Orange" details on the tongue, heel, and other accents. This blend of colors and materials underscores the Air Force 1's versatility and adaptability.
