AF1 Baltimore

Nike’s exclusive, limited-edition Special Field Air Force 1 Mid “For Baltimore” sneaker commemorates a unique piece of athletic-shoe history for which Baltimore is responsible. By 1984, the Air Force 1 was phasing out of production, and may have been abandoned altogether had three Baltimore retailers not intervened. AF1’s were extremely popular in Charm City, so the owners of Cinderella Shoes, Charley Rudo Sports and Downtown Locker Room convinced Nike to keep making them, which is why they’re still used in street and professional play today.
