regardless of whether you are into the old school or contemporary look, the new Nike Sneakerboots will have something for you. at least, i know i already have eyes for at least a pair. with the Nike Sneakerboot Collection, Nike takes the familiar classic Swoosh kicks and turned them into cool footwear (both literally and not) which we believe any man and woman would appreciate it added height (seriously, who doesn’t love hi-cuts?), traction, and most importantly, weatherproofing to beat the elements that will be upon us pretty soon. there seven models in the Sneakerboots lineup, namely Nike Air Force 1 Duckboot, Nike Air Max 90 Sneakerboot, Nike Free Run 2 Sneakerboot, Nike Lunar LDV Sneakerboot, Nike Roshe Run Sneakerboot, Nike Roshe Hi Run Sneakerboot and Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneakerboot. hit the jump for a little more details of each pair in the collection.
Nike Air Force 1 Duckboot
my eyes are on this one. the Nike Air Force 1 Duckboot sports the unmistakable throwback look along with modern amenities such as WaterShield technology and padded wool collar for you to rough it out in the great outdoors. other features include full-grain leather upper, metal eyelets and hooks and of course, the instantly recognizable AF1 DNA in a Duckboot guise.
Nike Air Max 90 Sneakerboot
bearing bold colors like its original, the Nike Air Max 90 Sneakerboot gives the legendary running shoes a higher take, along with features like internal neoprene collar to hold and protect the ankle without imposing your movement. other highlights include a minimalist external with less stitched panels, a winterized outsole, and reflective accents for improved visibility.
Nike Free Run 2 Sneakerboot
serious athlete will appreciate the Nike Free Run 2 Sneakerboot which offers the same barefoot-like benefits of the Nike Free technology, but in a winter boot height. features include deep flex grooves inherit from Nike Free 5.0, molded sockliner, full inner sleeve construction for full angle coverage, and reflective underlay and color-blocking on the heel for that extra eye-catching aesthetic.
Nike Lunar LDV Sneakerboot
the pioneering classic long distance runner from the 1970s has been updated by the Swoosh brand with impressive features like plush Nike Lunar Lunarlon cushioning, a more aggressive Waffle traction system, raise ankle section, and reflective mesh underlay that shines through the laser cut upper, giving this outdoor-inspired remix an hiking-meet-city-meet-running shoes outlook.
Nike Roshe Run Sneakerboot
the Nike Roshe Run Sneakerboot is basically the Roshe Run made for fall-winter workout. sporting a mid-cut design with features like quilted nylon textile tongue and forefoot, ripstop ankle collar that gives warmth and support, unique heel tape detailing and premium boot-inspired eyelets, making this pair of footwear an attractive sneaker-boot hybrid.
Nike Roshe Run Hi Sneakerboot
the Roshe goes even higher with the Nike Roshe Run Hi Sneakerboot in a rugged but yet feminine look. noteworthy mentions include a “rollable” upper that let you transform the look of the sneaker – from mid- to hi-cut. its boot-inspired webbing brings together the ultra-lightweight Phylon midsole/outsole for the ultimate in comfortable, cushioned wear.
Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneakerboot
like the Roshe Run Hi, the Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneakerboot is a feminine twist on the classic 1985 basketball kicks. special highlights of this pair of can’t-take-my-eyes-off boots include a duckboot-style protective toe, WaterShield technology to keep your feet dry in bad-weather situation, a gum rubber sole and of course, a quilted collar for a good measure of warmth.
the Nike Sneakerboot Collection is set to hit the stores in early October 2013. as for the prices, they are still yet-to-be-announced.
