Flyknit and Flax? The two might seem like they’re at opposite ends of the Nike Sportswear spectrum – one has a tendency to make Nike classics look like Timberland boots, and the other is rooted in performance running technology for a flexible and stylish ride. The two are actually coming together on the Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit “Flax”, a premium take on the Nike Air Force 1 boot inspiration that we’ve been seeing for the past three or so Fall/Winter seasons from the Swoosh.
The Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit “Flax” ditches the patented air technology found in Bruce Kilgore’s iconic basketball model for a sleeker Lunarlon finish, but what will really grab your attention here is the combination of a premium Flax nubuck paired with a matching Wheat Flyknit on the side panels. It’s a new take on the old Nike Sportswear “Wheat” aesthetic, and one that will cost you upwards of $200 USD to rock. The mid-top construction features matching nubuck ankle straps with embossed Swoosh branding and a rugged gum outsole tooling to help you survive the colder months ahead.
