ACG stands for All Gear Condition and it’s the outdoor line by Nike. And the sneakers and the apparel are made for extreme weather conditions. Waterproof, colorful, rugged, stylish – that is what Nike ACG is known for. It all started with the two climbers, Rick Ridgeway and John Roskelley, who climbed the K2. On their way up a picture was taken, where the two were posing with no hiking boots but Nike LDV on their feet. This picture gave Nike the boost to start Nike Hiking. Nike never intended to start outdoor shoes. But Nike equipped the best athletes, so why shouldn’t they support climbers, too? With the start of Nike Hiking, Nike shows that hiking boots can have nice colorways as well. They adapted the colors, which you find on their usual sneakers on Nike’s hiking boots. Nike ACG was founded in 1989 and replaced Nike Hiking. At the same time, the first ACG apparel was released. Till today the Nike ACG line is continuously evolving. New technology is featured in the latest models like the Nike React cushioning in the Nike ACG React Terra. In addition, Nike ACG hired ACRONYM founder, Errolson Hugh, as the head of design from 2014-2018. Is their any better way to hike in the most stylish outfit?
