Nike Air Force 1 Crater Flyknit: Friendly in style, friendly to our environment

Adding another iteration to the assemblage of the Nike ozone-safe Move to Zero initiative, Nike reinvented one of its classic profiles with modern tech and sustainable details. The Nike Air Force 1 Crater Flyknit uses the remarkable b-ball outline of the Air Force 1 and tweaks several elements for character and vibrance.

You love sneakers with a foot-hugging feel of knits. Instead of using the classic leather upper, Nike equipped this with the adaptive Flyknit upper. The stretchy Flyknit upper is made with durable yarn that provides ample support to strategic areas of the foot. It hugs the feet comfortably while contributing to its overall lightness and breathability.

You are into the classic style AF1 but prefer a more modern fit. This sneaker keeps the renowned profile of the AF1 model but lets you enjoy contemporary comfort. It is equipped with cutting-edge technologies, such as the Flyknit, Crater, and Grind, which allow you to strut the streets in a classic look but modern-age coziness. 

Eco-friendly sneakers are your game. As part of Nike's commitment to helping the future of the sport, Nike arms this with recycled materials. The speckled Crater foam cushioning is made from a mixture of 12% Nike Grind and foam. Underfoot, this model uses the groundbreaking Nike Grind. These are leftover manufacturing scraps that have been reused to reduce the overall waste coming from Nike's factories.
