Have you ever thought how cool it would be to be a shoe designer? I understand I have. A shoe designer has the ability to impact the sneaker world for years with his designs. Not at all times, but sometimes a shoe designer will generate an epic sneaker which will work for decades. It’s surely got to feel decent to be one of many select shoe designers that may say that they had that kind of impact on the sneaker world. Nike shoe designer Bruce Kilgore is one of many few that may say he feels pretty good. He feels decent knowing he designed probably the greatest sneaker ever made. That’s because Kilgore designed the epic Nike Air Force One.
The shoe that Kilgore created back 1982 continues to be certainly one of the most popular men’s sportswear shoe. Originally released as a basketball shoe, the Air Force One is now the most popular casual shoes of most time. This shoe was the first Nike shoe to ever utilize the famous Air technology. The shoe that was named after the aircraft employed by the President of the United States Vans Old Skool. The shoe that has been released in over 1900 colorways rendering it virtually impossible to find out exactly how many editions of it exist. The shoe that has spawned many imitators but can’t be duplicated. If you are Bruce Kilgore, that is enough to feel well about.
The newest colorway of the Air Force One combines Obsidian and White on the premium leather upper. A neutral grey is featured on the Swoosh and heel counter. The classic Air Force sole uses Obsidian and White as well. This really is merely another sharp looking colorway in the long line of releases of this epic shoe. Each month seems to bring at the least two new editions of the best shoe ever made. Each one also appears to impress. The classic design that Kilgore created back early 80’s is completely timeless and provides for a endless number of epic colorways.
Obviously, its not all shoe designer creates one of the very epic sneakers every made. And, the Nike Air Force One is epic. Kilgore could develop a masterpiece due to a mixture of talent and good luck. Obviously, we know what the definition of luck is. Luck is when effort meets opportunity. Kilgore’s talent and effort just happened to generally meet the right opportunity. And the others is history.
