The best (cheapest) Nike Air Force 1 sneakers you can buy right now

Every sneakerhead needs at least one pair.

Nike’s Air Force 1 Low is the quintessential sneaker. It’s simple, timeless, and the brand never seems to run out of ideas to make it fresh after nearly 40 years of service and counting. An all-white pair is a must in every sneakerhead’s rotation, but after that it doesn’t hurt to get one with a little more flair.

Nike

Countless versions of the Air Force 1 still manage to sell out, despite all this time and its relatively wide availability. But if you do a little digging, there are still plenty of pairs worth scooping up and wearing almost every day. We’ve put together the seven best to bring you what should ultimately be your new sleeper favorite.

Contrast stitching, outsole, and lining go a long way on what’s otherwise an all-white Air Force 1. It’s got just the right amount of color to standout from the basics.
