Who should not buy it

If you're not sold on the featured boot's short laces, then try your luck with the Nike Manoa. Also, opt for the Path Winter instead if you feel more confident with synthetic leather.

The Nike Lunar Air Force 1 Duckboot in history

In the year 2008, Nike launched a new cushioning and outsole technology called the Lunarlon, which debuted and featured in two models—namely the Nike Lunaracer and Nike Hyperdunk. Developed by veteran shoe designers Kevin Hoffer and Eric Avar, the Lunarlon shoe technology gave both basketball players and distance runners the bouncy responsiveness and soft cushioning they required from their footwear.

Four years after, the brand decided to combine AF1's already iconic silhouette with the technologically advanced Lunarlon cushioning. This fusion led to the creation of the hybrid Nike Lunar Force 1. Making an appearance on December 12, 2012, its debut was greeted with great enthusiasm.

Nike, however, aiming to maintain its status in the market, did not stop their pursuit of perfection. Various versions were designed and developed to meet consumers’ continually changing needs and demands. This includes the Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot.

Launched in 2015, this shoe was built to endure the cold and rainy weather. Now, fans of the brand have an option to wear a sneaker/boot that is durable and water-resistant, as well as fashionable, lightweight, and comfortable. A wide array of colorways, not to mention a low cut-version called the Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low, have been released for this model, proving this shoe’s growing popularity.
