Do Air Force 1 shoes fit to size?
Nike Air Force 1s typically fit larger in size. We would recommend that you go half a size down from your regular shoe size.
Nike Air Force Ones are a bit longer in length on feet compared to a regular sneaker. So someone who wears a size 8.5 in Nike Roshes, should size down to a 8 in AF1s. If you want an even tighter fit, you could probably size down a full size.
