Light Carbon Launches 2018

Light Carbon launches 2018 with a big step forward. The iconic profile of the AF1 is streamlined in its newest iteration, borrowing design elements from the Foamposite. That’s not the only element borrowed; the metallic colorway is also a brand new feature.

It taps into the recent iridescent trend and takes on smoky shades of blue, purple, aqua, and teal.

New Year, No Seams

You can pick up a pair of Light Carbon with no strings attached– literally. The design says good-bye to the stitches and panels of the AF1 and welcomes the smooth, seamless vibe of the Foamposite:

Enter Foamposite technology, utilizing a three-mold process that eliminates seams, delivering a pristine, streamlined aesthetic.

Strategic molding maintains AF1 integrity, still showing its signature panels. The Swoosh is in its traditional spot, this time molded and raised. Of course, some things never change. The signature AF1 strap is still in full effect.

The Ultimate Air Cruiser

Light Carbon is as light as it feels. The Foamposite detail keeps materials light, even though they’re put through a three-mold process. In addition to Nike Air cushioning, the newer, lighter feel of the AF1 makes wear carefree and comfortable.

Because what comes up most go down, it’s important to keep Light Carbon— grounded. That’s why it maintains the sole of the AF1 instead of curvy one seen in Foamposite. Light Carbon is 100% AF1 right down to its sole– which is a perfect platform, if you ask any AF1 aficionados.
