Does the Nike Air Force 1 Fit True to Size?

Of all Nike’s models, the Air Force 1 runs the biggest. Most people will find that going half a size down will offer them the best fit.

If you have wider feet, you may find that opting for your normal size results in a more comfortable wearing experience.

2

How Do Nike Air Force 1 Fit?

All iterations of the Nike Air Force 1 run big. Most people will find that they will need to size down half a size.

If you find that your normal size is too big and the half size down is not available, you could always add in an insole to achieve a tighter fit.

The Air Force 1’s have a wide toe box, allowing plenty of room for your toes to splay as you walk.

Nike Air Force Sizing For Wide Feet

Owing to the wide toe box, the Air Force 1’s can be a good choice for those with wide feet.

Instead of sizing down half a size, you should buy your true size if you have wide feet. If you can, always try shoes on before buying to ensure you get the perfect fit.
