This February sees a timely and welcome Spring Summer drop from Nike ACG.
This season, Nike's search led them to Smith Rock, Oregon. The new collection was inspired by this place, but it was also worn there. The trousers, jackets, tops and shoes in this collection reflect Smith Rock. Nature rubbings formed the basis for several designs. Nike paid homage to the trails when they named the jackets. And used materials like GORE-TEX fabric, PrimaLoft and rugged rubber to mirror the elements they experienced. So, when you see "Designed, Tested and Made on Planet Earth", this is what process means.

A rugged favourite gets a waterproof upgrade. The Nike Air Nasu delivers with a durable build that provides support for the trail. It's got the same abrasion-resistant skins throughout the upper you love, now with GORE-TEX technology so you can tackle wet weather.
A sticky rubber outsole is highlighted with lugs that give you traction for wet and rocky surfaces. It all comes together in a design that nods to the classic look of ACG footwear in the '90s.
Following in the footsteps of its high-top predecessor, this rugged, low-top silhouette is as comfortable in the city as it is on rocky trails. The design's lightweight upper features an easy-use gaiter for on-the-go personalisation, while its sticky rubber outsole delivers crag-inspired traction. Finally, plush React foam combines with Vaporfly technology to create unbelievable comfort in any condition.
This product was designed and tested in Oregon, USA. To create this shoe, the Nke ACG team was inspired by the region surrounding Mount Nasu in Japan.
Lines along the upper nod to the look of ACG footwear from the '90s, like the Air Wallowa, Air Humara and Air Terra Grand.
Because Nike know the Mountain Fly will take you everywhere, they tested them in high-intensity environments in their own backyard. Oregon's vast wilderness served as an integral inspiration, with their team travelling to a couple of the state's favourite natural attractions—the rock climbing playground Smith Rock and the pristine waters of Crater Lake—to connect with the environment and learn how it can inform their gear.
