Nike is celebrating their legendary Air Force 1 this year, marking forty years of one of the brand’s most recognizable shoes. This week, the classic ‘Columbia Blue’ colorway of the AF1 high has resurfaced, coming soon.

The history of the Nike Air Force 1 should not be anything new to even the most novice sneakerhead. Originally released in 1982, the basketball-turned-lifestyle model is one of the most popular shoes on earth, thanks to its timeless look and endless color and material options. So, with the Swoosh celebrating forty years of Air Force this year, it’s only right they recreate the AF1’s original release in all of its glory. This week, the high-cut version of the Air Force surfaced in a new retro release, decking out the silhouette in an original ‘Columbia Blue’ color scheme. The look starts with a white leather base, adding the signature blue tone to the Swooshes, strap, inner lining, and outsole, while an aged sail-toned midsole rounds out the look.


Nike’s next retro release of the Air Force 1 High, this time celebrating the original 1982 ‘Columbia Blue’ release, has not yet been announced, though they are expected to drop in Spring 2022. The crisp white and blue color scheme will be available from both Nike and select retailers, with a price tag of $115. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.

UPDATE 10/5/22: Nike has slated this classic colorway of the Air Force 1 High to release in women’s sizes later this month, on October 26th, 2022. The bright blue color scheme will come with a price tag of $125.
