We have seen the duck boot done many different ways this season. From Nike's take with the Woodside, to a completely different approach with the Gourmet Quadici, it almost seems like every footwear brand has a duck boot-inspired model. Yet, until now, we have not seen anything like the Nike Air Force 1 'Duck Boot'. This weather-ready model transforms an iconic basketball sneaker into a suitable winter selection. The Nike Air Force 1 'Duck Boot' features a premium leather upper, water-resistant duck boot-styled toebox, wool WaterShield collar, and an extremely aggressive outsole pattern that will allow you to tread through harsh road conditions. Plus, they also come with two pairs of waxed laces (black and red). Some of you don't experience the weather that demands a winter boot (Hello Los Angeles!), but for the rest of you the Nike Air Force 1 'Duck Boot' is without a doubt a welcomed model.

The Nike Air Force 1 is simply legendary. Yet, with all the color combinations and materials that Nike has used on the Nike Air Force 1 over the years, the hits still keep coming. Just in time for winter, Nike gives us the Air Force 1 "Workboot" Black/Sail. One look and it's easy to see this sneaker is a must have. They boast a premium black leather upper with white contrast stitching and a perforated Swoosh that sits atop a sail (or "off white") colored midsole. But, Nike did not stop there. This "Workboot" edition also features gold detailing on the ankle strap, gold eyelets and a gold lace tag. Plus, they topped it off with workboot-inspired round laces. With so many Nike Air Force 1 models releasing on the daily, it's hard to decide which ones to cop. The Air Force 1 "Workboot" is a superb choice.

This latest Nike Air Force 1 features a simple yet fantastic colorway. If nothing else it is definitely Air Force 1 weather and more specifically white on white weather but if you need a break from the normal check for this Air Force 1 '07 White/Team Orange. This nike retro shoe features a white leather base that serves as the blank canvas for the team orange accents to take center stage. From the outsole to the swoosh this Nike retro style shoe also uses very simple color blocking to get its point across. As you see, most of the sneaker comes in clean white, team orange accents are seen on the outsole, Nike Swoosh, liner, and the Nike branding on the tongue tag. The Air Branding on the midsole also uses orange. The touches of orange really gives the Nike retro style shoe a nice look.

The Nike Air Force One always looks good in white. Add in a bit of black like on this pair, and the colorway is a sure-fire winner.As part of the Fall 2010 Nike Air Force 1 line, this White/Black colorway is due to be part of the first wave in July. This Air Force 1 Nike retro style shoe is predominantly white, with black Vandal-like accents seen throughout. While leather makes up the upper, though the black trim is what really sets this Nike retro style shoe apart. A under-layer backs each panel on the upper, and the trim continues around the top of the midsole. The laces and outsole are both also black giving a bit of contrast to what is otherwise a basic white Air Force 1 Low.

The Nike Air Force 1 has seen just about every texture and colorway on its ever-so-popular silhouette. This particular Air Force 1 Nike Retro style shoe features perforated leather on the side and heel panel similar to the multiple Futura x Nike Air Force 1s.

Patent leather wraps the entire toe and lace panels while perforated leather covers the mid-panels and heel, before jumping back to patent leather again on the Swoosh and heel tab.

The Nike Air Force 1 retro style shoe was at the forefront of the sneakerhead craze during the earlier part of this decade. While the designs and colorways of the Nike SB Dunk were popular for its eccentricity, the Nike Air Force 1 built its backbone on simple yet meticulous color blocking. This retro lifestyle shoe uppers are constructed of clean white leather while metallic silver accents are put into use on areas such as the tongue tag, Nike swoosh, and the outsole. 3M material is added to the Nike swoosh to give it a nice shine in low light. Other features include a clean white midsole and a nylon tongue. This new white and metallic silver 3M pair looks like a throwback from the 80s; the unmistakeable all-white upper on top of the grey sole with a 3M reflective swoosh will have Air Force 1 sneakerheads nodding in approval.

Although the Nike Air Force 1 has not released in limitless colorways like previous years, this iconic silhouette has still received its share of attention. The Nike Air Force 1 retro style shoe is taking on the two tone look as of lately. With all the Air Force 1's seen lately, most of them have really only featured two colors. Well here we get another two tone Air Force 1 low as the latest one comes in a loud White/Electric Green colorway. White leather makes up the majority of the base much like some of the more traditional Air Force 1's we have seen over the years. Yet, its electric green accents, such as the swoosh, outsole and Nike tongue branding, give this retro style shoe a very distinctive color scheme. Its complimentary attributes, including the monochromatic laces and inner lining, keep this shoe simple at the same time. From the outsole to the swoosh the shoe uses very simple color blocking to get its point across making the hue noticeable. Even though the color combination uses only two colors, electric green makes this Nike Air Force 1 retro style shoe very attracting.

There's nothing cleaner than a fresh pair of Air Force 1s. While the white-on-white rightfully gets re-released constantly, this Birch/White model clearly evokes memories of the "Linen" Air Force 1, which has yet to see re-release. This Nike retro style Air Force 1 hosts a predominantly birch colored upper. Birch leather on the toe, lace panel, and heel lay on a woven base of the same color. White is used for the swoosh, inner liner, laces, and midsole. However, it is the soft brown/tan colors on the upper and on the midsole that give this retro style shoe its flavor.

This Air Force 1 Low Premium is a result of a collaboration between Futura and Nike. Futura and Nike have been part of collaborations before, so both sides are familiar with each other. This latest Nike Air Force 1 Low comes in an Metallic Silver/White-Purple colorway. This particular retro lifestyle shoe is done up in an eye-popping metallic silver base comprised of premium leather (toe area) and perforated leather (side and heel panels).

The eye catching retro lifestyle shoe is broken up into two separate textures with the toe box using a sporting perforated feel as opposed the mid panel and rear, which are heavily perforated.
