A WINTERIZED ICON
The Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot Men's Shoe takes the iconic hoops silhouette and updates it to deflect rain and retain warmth with a water-repellent finish, soft inner sleeve and ground-gripping traction.
Supportive Weather Protection
Woven Flyknit yarns integrate areas of high breathability, stretch and support where you need it most, conforming to the shape of your foot for a comfortable, lightweight feel. A DWR (durable, water-repellent) finish helps keep your feet dry in rainy weather.
An inner sleeve provides a sock-like fit and windproof protection for your toes, while zonal wool delivers targeted warmth. The premium leather mid-cut collar adds support and comfort for every adventure.
The aggressive tread pattern on the solid rubber outsole delivers excellent traction and durability on slick surfaces.
- Premium leather overlays and ankle strap are a nod to the original AF1
- Soft sockliner offers premium cushioning
- Reflective pull tabs on the heel and tongue enhance your visibility in low light
Air Force 1 Origins
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was coined after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the blacktop to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe's status as an icon.
FLYKNIT ORIGINSNike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock. Nike embarked on a four-year mission with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—was refined. The result is a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper.
