Nike ACG has introduced their newest silhouette that was made for hiking during the warmer months called, the Air Zoom AO.
The shoe features design elements from previous models, while incorporating modern technology. Its upper and lacing system is pulled from the Phantom VNM soccer cleat, the sole unit takes nods from the 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.
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.
Look for the Nike ACG Air Zoom AO to begin releasing on July 9th at select retailers and Nike.com.
Release Date: July 9, 2020
