Probably its most distinguished feature is its Flyknit upper supported by premium leather reinforcements, considering that it is marketed as a winter sneaker. What surprises most purchasers is that it has an inner wool material that helps keep the feet warm and withstand the cold. The Flyknit upper is also designed with a durable and water repellent finish to keep the feet dry in any weather condition.

History of the Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot

The Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot, sometimes referred to as the LF1 Flyknit Workboot, has aesthetic similarities to the Lunar Force 1 Duckboot – another sneakerboot model from the Swoosh brand that released a year earlier. The LF1 Flyknit Workboot, however, differs in such a way that its upper is comprised of Flyknit with premium leather overlays. It also features an ankle strap that adds support and comfort around the ankle and a gum rubber outsole with aggressive tread patterns for maximum grip even on wet surfaces.

The Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot was released in 2016 as part of the Nike Sneakerboots Fall 2016 collection. This collection features other Nike models such as the Presto Mid Utility, the Roshe Two Hi Flyknit, and the Lupinek Flyknit with a modified upper and outsole that can endure the wet and cold weather.
