Kicks We Like: Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low

Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low $140.00

I grew up dealing with sub-zero winters in Canada, so when it comes to outdoor gear, I’m down with whatever keeps me the warmest.  If I had money in my pocket, my first choices would be Timberland and North Face because they look good, can last through multiple winters, and keep you warm.  I’ve never owned a pair of duck boots, but apparently the L.L. Bean duck boot is straight fire for the Starbucks set.  For L.L. Bean, the duck boot is money in the bank as it has sold out every year since 2011.

Earlier this year, Nike came out with its own high-top version of the duck boot , which almost looked nice (from the outline) until you got to the gruesome, studded spike look treatment on the toe box coupled with the f’ugly quilted upper.  Not sure what it is about the high-top version that makes me throw up a little bit in my mouth when I see it, but I guess it’s kind of like Eleven’s sister’s punk rock crew in episode 7 of Stranger Things, season two: inauthentic and somehow lacking.

Nike got it right, however, with the Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low.  It has the clean and simple look of the AF1, sublime swoosh, gripped gum soles, metal eyelets, ACG style laces, and waterproof treatment.  We tested these out, and they are waterproof, light, and ultra-comfortable with the lunar sole.  Best of all, since Spring is here, you should be able to cop these for a good price.  Awesome likes the classic blue and tan homage to the original and wolf grey/cool grey versions best.

I try to get 5 or 6 runs in the morning, then 5 or 6 runs after lunch. Its important to me to feel like I've put in the work, 'punched in' for the shift, when I ride. Makes the day have some more importance and meaning. A purpose if you will.

I learned to just play it cool and slip in comments like ‘I just made a killing on Litecoin yesterday.  It went up 500% percent between the time we got here and lunch.  Who has two thumbs and is going to Monaco to hang with Beyonce this summer...This guy.’  See, so smooth, I should be called ‘Butter.’”

Justin Timberlake’s upcoming Air Jordan 3 JTH in Bio Beige is straight fire. These kicks are so beautiful that if you cop, it is almost guaranteed that you’ll have individuals (albeit mostly Asian males between 15 and 35) clamoring to tell you “You’re bringing sexy back.”
