Typically we rely on Nike ACG for the tougher footwear pieces, but Nike Sportswear has definitely been hitting it out of the park with the rugged Nike Air Force 1 High Duckboot releases. We’ve seen a string of colorways that ehco classic outerwear palettes, and it was only a matter of time before they delivered on a no frills black on black release. Well here you have it, the weather ready Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Duckboot’ comes in a varying set of textures on the upper, with d-ring lacing and the traction upgraded outsole to drive home the beefed up look. Check them out after the jump and let us know how they stack up against the other Duckboot AF1′s we’ve seen. via Ashoes.

The Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Duckboot’ is like the perfect shoe for the Northeastern region, where the Air Force 1 High has enjoyed a long-lasting reign in the sneaker culture. Unlike those who live in more agreeable climate conditions, sneakerheads in the NE have rough weather to worry about – and that’s where the Duckboot Air Force 1 comes in. It’s a rugged, weather-ready sneaker/boot with the timeless Air Force 1 High silhouette and the characteristics of one of the most effective pieces of bad-weather footwear in history. This new Tan/Brown/Red colorway is set to hit select Nike Sportswear retailers this October so check out the detailed shots below and pre-order your pair over at CrookedTongues.

Sneaker News continues our broad preview of the Nike Sportswear Fall 2011 Footwear Collection, and we’ve got some more treats for the AF1 fan. The Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Duckboot’, which dropped earlier this year, was one of the more unique releases from NSW, as it transformed one of the most historic basketball shoes into a outdoor-ready, weather resistant pair of boots – a far cry from its origin. You can expect these two new colorways to drop this Fall 2011 season; the first features an earthy mix of brown and olive green which is paired with a full gum sole, and a second more sleeker variety, which achieves that notion thanks to a tonal black upper paired with a khaki beige toe. We’ve got an additional viewing for you after the jump so take a look and let us know which of the two colorways you like more. via END.
