Sure, you can wear a pair of Nike Air Force 1s in the fairway to play a round of golf, but we doubt they can give you the stability and traction you need to play a strong game on the grass. Basketball shoes are made for hardcourts, after all. If you really must insist on wearing one across 18 holes, Nike’s got you covered with the Lunar Force 1, a new version of the classic silhouette that’s built for playing on the course.
That’s right, the very first shoe to use Nike Air technology just made its way to the fairway, retaining the iconic look while providing the technical elements needed to perform well from tee to green. Whether you’re a casual golfer who plays to socialize and network, a recreational player who really admires the game, or a highly-competitive dude who cheats more than his fair share (hey, it’s golf – everybody cheats), you can now reinforce your favorite golf outfits with classic basketball kicks.
The Nike Lunar Force 1 constructs the familiar silhouette in premium leather, with perforations at strategic areas to provide adequate ventilation. Waffle tread rubber outsole with low-profile lugs delivers the grip you need to keep things stable on the course, while a full-length Lunarlon midsole provides responsive cushioning without sacrificing a complete feel of the ground. Basically, it’s an Air Force 1 with lugs. It comes in two colorways: white and black.
Available now, the Nike Lunar Force 1 is priced at $140.
