With all-white sneaker season officially on deck, Nike is taking one if its most legendary silhouettes to a whole new level of comfort with the upcoming Nike Air Fore 1 High CMFT Lux QS. The sneaker adds several new technologies into the mix that are designed to elevate the comfort level of the Air Force 1.
The new technologies include a seamless one-piece Nike Breathe upper and a Lunarlon drop-in sockliner/midsole that features Zoom Air in the heel. The mesh-based Nike Breathe upper is a significant upgrade over the normal leather upper as your feet won't get drenched in sweat the second you step outside into the summer heat. And the Lunarlon x Zoom tooling should feel infinitely more comfortable than the brick-like Air sole used in the regular Air Force 1.
Thankfully, unlike several of Nike's past Air Force 1 upgrades, the additional tech in the CMFT Lux QS doesn't take away from the clean aesthetic of Air Force 1. The sneaker keeps the overall look and feel of the O.G., which includes a white-on-white upper, metallic gold accents, and a fully translucent blue-tinted sole unit. This pair also has a military inspiration, with E Pluribus Unum written on the tongue — a Latin phrase that translates to "Out of many, one" — and stars on the lace locks.
It wouldn't be far fetched to see this as a release for Memorial Day.
