The Air Force 1 sneaker has been an iconic silhouette since it first hit the scene in 1982. Known for the circular pattern on the outsole, it was a stylish and top performance option both on and off the court. That pattern happens to also be a pivot point. Perfect for performance, it allows users to turn as needed and without hesitation.
The AF1 quickly became the Sneakerhead’s dream as a variety of styles and color ways started dropping. Amsterdam-based photographer and director Jo0st took an interest in shooting kicks thanks to his brother’s love for sneakers. He started shooting the shoes and using them as subjects for his visual presentations. His photos evolved from simple symmetrical images to implementing a motion blur technique. The motion blur technique that captures all of the attributes of the show as it rotates around an axis point. The abstract motion blur designs show the AF1 as never seen before. The more colorful the kicks, the fresher the blur. Check out the video above to see how it’s done.
