LUNAR FORCE 1
LAUNCHED ON: December 12, 2012
Having reigned supreme for 30 years as the iconic shoe for court and culture, the Nike Air Force 1 has been reimagined from the inside out. Lunarlon cushioning helps reduce the shoe’s weight while enhancing flexibility, courtesy of Lunarlon beveled ribs, and Nike Zoom in the heel remains for low-profile, responsive cushioning. Revolutionary Hyperfuse construction in the upper combines three layers of durability, breathability and stability into a unique one-piece design. Other subtle alterations—a slimmer toe box and trimmed rubber outsole—help drop the weight from 17.56 ounces to an impressive 11.7 ounces.
The Nike Lunar Force 1 is undeniably still a Nike Air Force 1; it’s just been revolutionized. Available in white and black ($125 ) and reflective digi-camo ($175), the shoe is set to launch in limited quantities on 12.12.12.
