While Nike‘s celebration of the Air Force 1‘s 25th anniversary was largely centered around its history and the culture it created, the focus of the iconic silhouette’s 30th birthday campaign has been the future. At the pinnacle of this year’s initiative is the Lunar Force 1, a game-changing shoe that revolutionizes the classic sneaker with two of Nike’s most advanced technologies — Lunarlon cushioning and Hyperfuse construction. An innovative remake that stays true to the unique heritage of the Air Force 1, yet catapults it into a new era of relevance, the shoe was redesigned from the inside out and from the ground up. Nike replaced the midsole’s heel Air unit — itself a radical innovation in 1982 — with springy Lunarlon foam and a heel Zoom Air unit, enhancing comfort and flexibility while also reducing weight. New Hyperfuse uppers, meanwhile, utilize a unique unibody construction, fusing three layers for even lighter weight and minimized seams. Additional refinements like an inner booty, reflective Swoosh and slimmed-down toe box complete the package, one that now weighs in at a mere 11.7 ounces. A sign that the Force will be with us for the foreseeable future, the Nike Lunar Force 1 will release in limited quantities on December 12 at select Nike Sportswear retail locations globally.
