Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot History

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 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.

Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot Style

Dubbed as one of Nike’s sneakerboots, the Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot is a high-top sneaker that can be worn by both men and women during the winter. The premium leather overlays on the Flyknit upper adds a lavish touch to the casually stylish look of the shoe. Choosing which kind of outfit suits it best will not be a problem as the colorways available are versatile enough to be worn with anything.

Fit & Sizing

The Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot is a high-top men’s sneaker available from sizes 7 to 13, including half sizes, in Standard width. It is also available in women’s sizing that range from 5 to 10, also in half sizes and Standard width.

It features a Flyknit upper material, which makes the shoe not only breathable but also significantly lighter in weight than the usual sneaker boots. The woven textile upper is supported with leather overlays on the mudguard, heel, Swoosh branding, eyelids, and ankle strap. Said strap allows added protection around the ankle while providing a more secure fit to the feet.

Also featured is a traditional lace closure that can be adjusted as desired by the wearer.

Notable Features

The Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot, otherwise referred to as the LF1 Flyknit Workboot, is one of Nike’s sneakerboots designed to withstand cold and wet weather conditions.

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.

Other notable features are the pull tabs on the tongue and heel as well as the signature ankle strap, which are a nod to the Air Force 1 mid-tops.

Additional Info

  • The inner part of the shoe includes a wool lining to keep the feet warm
