Nike Revives Its Legendary Air Force 1 Roc-A-Fella In New Drop
A spin on sneaker history.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low Roc-A-Fella was originally designed for members of the Roc-A-Fella record label back in 2000. Now, just like the most timeless of records, the sneaker has been re-released, immortalizing the legendary record label with the sole addition of its retro logo on the back of the leather upper.
The Air Force 1 was embedded in the Roc-A-Fella crew long before they were gifted with their own exclusive design. Kareem “Biggs” Burke, who was behind the movement from the start, and the crew were said to purchase up to 150 pairs at a time, filling up the Roc-A-Fella Street Team vehicle or a van that had enough space to transport their fresh whites. The marriage between the AF-1 and the Roc will forever be a legendary moment. “All these stores around Harlem, you know, you'd see the Air Force 1 and it's like you're a little kid. Like, man, when I get some money I’m gonna get that. So, now that our logo was on the sneaker, I mean, it was one of the most special things for us,” Biggs tells Nike.
