Nike Lunar Force 1 (KICKS)

The future of Air Force 1: Lunarlon cushioning + Hyperfuse construction.

On December 12, Nike will release the Lunar Force 1 in select Nike Sportswear retail locations globally. The Lunar Force 1 is the Air Force 1 of the future, built with Lunarlon cushioning and Nike’s Hyperfuse construction. Here’s more, direct from the Swoosh:

The Nike Lunar Force 1 is redesigned from the inside out. Lunarlon cushioning in the midsole and outsole features trademark Lunarlon beveled ribs, enhancing flexibility and reducing the shoe’s weight. A Nike Zoom Air-Sole unit remains in the heel for superior comfort and reactivity. Simultaneously, Nike’s Hyperfuse construction transforms the upper with its unique unibody construction that fuses three layers —one for stability, one for breathability and one for durability—into one revolutionary, lightweight composite. In addition, the advanced design’s minimized seams mean less rub, while its distinct look allows for new embellishments and colorways.

Subtle refinements, including a slimmed toe box (reinforced to minimize signs of wear) and trimmed rubber outsole (cut from seven to five millimeters), further drop the weight of the Nike Lunar Force 1 from the original 17.56 ounces to just 11.7 ounces.  Calculated details, like an internal bootie, mean a superior fit without cinched laces. Additional understated distinctions such as a reflective Swoosh, underscore the new design while the classic sneaker’s integrity and signature silhouette remain intact. It’s still unmistakably a Nike Air Force 1; it’s just got more to offer.

    These are crazy. I under stand the limited release to create buzz, but these need to be made available to the general population as well. I want a pair, but I don’t want to get stabbed by a hipster just to get some, haha

    I dont see a lot of hipsters rocking white on white. I think you’ll be safe. Now if you were wearing Spider-Man Reeboks, suede mocassins or beige grampa Etonics with velcro straps on em…. I’d carry a knife.

    I don’t have anything against these at all ,but Nike needs to get out of the habbit of fusing two shoes together and come up with some new ideas. It’s getting old guys.
