Nike ACG Air Zoom AO - @Nike


Nike ACG Air Zoom AO

What are the core characteristics of the ultimate summer hiker? This question lies at the heart of the Nike ACG Air Zoom AO, an amphibious go-anywhere shoe new for 2020. Consideration of adaptability, drainage, grip and more yield a composite design that takes inspiration from past Nike cult favorites and new performance solutions. 

For example, laces are concealed in a system similar to the Nike Phantom VNM football boot (here, the adapted covering helps to reduce snags on the trail rather than assist a clean ball strike). The sole unit takes lessons from the Nike Kukini 2003, and all its water-draining glory, and the Nike SFB Jungle boot for walking in creeks without getting water logged. Sticky rubber aids traction, and a hard rubber toe increases durability. Responsive cushioning comes via a Zoom Air unit in the heel. Quick-pull lacing and a bootie construction also support the amphibious functionality of the Nike ACG Air Zoom AO. 

It’s a fitting build for a shoe named after the Japanese word for the colors blue and green, representative equally of land and ocean.
