atmos Tokyo Celebrates 40 Years of Nike’s AF1 with a Coffee Table Book

Considering how many people still go about wearing them today, it’s almost hard to believe that Nike’s Air Force 1 silhouette first hit shelves forty years ago. And while you may have grown weary of seeing nothing but white pairs in person, the iconic sneaker boutique in Atmos just wheeled out a comprehensive book on the classic sneaker featuring a befitting array of 40 colorways.

This visual compendium is the brainchild of Hommyo Hidefumi and Hirofumi Kojima, the respective founders of Atmos and SHOES MASTER, the latter of which is a sneaker-centric news publication based in Japan. In an effort to dive into physical publishing, they’ve developed Sneaker Heritage by SHOES MASTER to deliver well-designed books that shine a light on particular silhouettes that sit in a pantheon of their own.

This 216-page book is the first installation in this series, and it couldn’t have come at a more suitable time. The 40 pairs that these certified sneakerheads feature include the first collaboration with former Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, the high-top Supreme joint effort from 2014, and an array of colorways that are a product of Nike’s partnership with Off-White. These rare examples and unreleased samples, among over 30 others, are some of the most coveted pairs ever made.

Whether you’re an enduring fan of the AF1 or want to freshen up your sneaker knowledge, this book is a worthy addition to any shelf. The collaborative Air Force One Book is available on the atmos’ webshop for $60.

Purchase: $60
