Exploring the outdoors is about taking chances and conquering fears; Nike did just that in the early '80s when famous sneaker designers Monty Mayko, Mark Parker, and Tinker Hatfield conceptualized the idea behind Nike's All Condition Gear (ACG). Although Nike ACG wasn't officially launched as a sub-category until 1989, many of the original models hit the market in 1981 as the first trail-runners, water shoes, and hiking boots to incorporate lightweight technologies into their designs.
At that time, outdoor shoes were crafted overseas and made of heavy materials like neutral-colored leather uppers and featured minimal underfoot cushioning and extremely stiff rubber outsoles. This was perfect for European mountain men; however, it was a drag for adventurous people looking to explore and have fun outdoors. Nike saw this as an opportunity to stir up the outdoor industry and conquer an obstacle they had never tackled in the past. Nike ACG was born. Since the beginning of the ACG brand, both performance and edginess have been the key factors in design, allowing ACG to journey away from Nike's traditional sports roots and enter Mother Nature's massive playground. The brand carries on Nike's core vision of authenticity while pushing the boundaries of design, making it a favorite among sneaker lovers and collectors. Their styles include top-of-the-line performance details like waterproof uppers, moisture-wicking liners, and ultra-durable yet lightweight lugged outsoles. This, combined with forward-thinking design elements and in-your-face colors, results in an innovative creation process and a brand that is adored both in the outdoor and urban worlds. There are no boundaries when it comes to Nike ACG gear, just as there are no boundaries in the style game. Whether you're looking for a waterproof hiking boot like the Goadome, a cold-weather boot like the Woodside II, or something for street appeal, Nike ACG has you covered.
