The Air Force 1 goes beyond any other sneaker. It has become a representation of hard work and determination just as much as style and fashion. It's seen on countless people, from all different walks of life: the unsung heroes. To honor those people and the iconic sneaker, Nike teamed up with Girlgaze to create a photo series. Girlgaze is an online platform providing creative careers for girls. Girlgaze photographers were given the chance to shed light on unsung heroes in the community that are creating change to empower those around them. The end result is a truly collaborative, authentic, and raw collection of photography that celebrates unstoppable forces.
Photographers included Alexa Viscius and Ashley Armitage from Chicago, Alice Liu and Emma Robinson from Toronto, Kava Gorna and Heather Hazzan from New York City, and Thalia Gochez and Daria Kobayashi Ritch from Los Angeles.
