It’s not a giant leap of the imagination to picture Neil Armstrong pulling on a pair of the Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknits. With its rugged Lunar sole and Flyknit upper, the sneaker has a strong space race vibe – perhaps from its combination of a retro aesthetic paired with cutting-edge tech. The ‘Flax’ colourway sees the lunar high-top hit land with a combo of earth tones. The brown nubuck upper houses a complementary Flyknit mélange that runs from side panels to the collar. Sitting atop a white midsole with rugged natural gum tread, the Lunar Force 1 is finished with debossed branding.
TheNike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit 'Flax' is available now at select stockists including Kith.
