The Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low is available in men’s range. The round toe and low-top silhouette allow the wearers' feet not to feel too restricted. The metal eyelets ooze a utilitarian appeal and augment maximum lockdown to the feet.

The Lunar Force 1 series highly reflects Nike's lifestyle footwear ingenuity in using a classic silhouette on a futuristic shoe. The synthetic upper exudes a sleeker and dressier look, making it a perfect piece to show off while strutting the streets. Users can style these with joggers or cuffed jeans to exude a hip look or with dark-washed denim for a work-appropriate attire.

Just like the other sneakers under the Lunar Force 1 series, expect that the force is also strong with this one. Even though it is made for lifestyle wear, its features are for the aggressive. Its low-maintenance and water-repellent upper keeps the wearers and the exterior of the shoe dry at all times. Furthermore, the Lunarlon feature, a technology that provides a springy but responsive ride, allows the user to enjoy this shoe’s rugged aesthetic day in and day out.

The Air Force 1 changed the history of sneakers. Besides the infused technology that used air, the shoe also created such a high market demand that forced the brand to put back a shelved model, something that did not make sense during that time.

In 2008, a groundbreaking technology that was created by Kevin Hoffer and Eric Avar called Lunarlon was introduced. This ultra-lightweight and responsive cushioning system allowed distance runners and basketball players handle different movements, whether they are sprinting on the track or jumping on the court.

Four years after the release of Lunarlon, Nike decided to combine both legends—using the AF1's silhouette and the Lunarlon technology. The Lunar Force 1 merges the classic and the future, breeding a new generation of Nike sneaker. Different releases were made from this line, including the Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low, a low-top men's sneaker that garnered a winter-ready makeover.

  • The Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low is available in four colorways-- sequoia, black, obsidian, and ale brown.
