Last Summer, Nike Sportswear teased us with a cryptic message that read “In a few days we’ll share something the world hasn’t felt before.” Of course, that message alluded to the Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite, but that message surely applies to the Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Duckboot’, which combines the classic Air Force 1 High silhouette with a Duckboot construction. In what might be the most rugged, weather-ready pair of Forces ever created, the Duckboot Air Force 1 High utilized a number of cold-weather fitting details, like the wool-lined WaterShield ankle collar, waterproof toe-box, and spiked outsole. The bottom traction has also been modified to trudge through the worst of conditions with the utmost of ease. 21 Mercer will have the Black colorway of the Air Force 1 High Duckboot this Saturday so take a look at the detailed images after the jump and let us know what you think.
