Among the best side effects of the sneaker scene taking on a ‘mature’ lean in the days following 2008’s global financial meltdown has been the integration of tried and true styles with modern footwear technology. Twenty, ten, or even five years ago, it wasn’t exactly the coolest thing in the world if you got sent to school wearing a pair of duckboots to protect your everyday kicks from nasty conditions, but what was once seen as something of a punishment from well meaning parents has evolved into a sure sign of personal style with releases like the Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Duckboot’. These joints manage a perfect hybrid balance between the AF1 High’s classic basketball vamp and the rugged, waterproof boot for which it’s named, this Dark Army-toed edition suitably earthy so as to match almost anything in your outfit this fall.
