The sneaker features a GORE-TEX fabric upper and bootie design to keep the elements out, while a waffle pattern outsole and multi-directional traction ensure you can handle rocky terrain. The Air Nasu GORE-TEX is a pre-existing model that has a no-sew rubberized mesh upper, Nike Air heel cushioning, and hard rubber in the toe, heel, and outer edges for protection and durability. It also comes with sticky rubber through the center of the shoe to provide better footing on various terrains.

Editor’s Notes: Nike has placed a focus on sustainability for its Holiday 2020 ACG collection. Specifically, 85 percent of the apparel from the assortment contains more than 90 percent recycled content, as the company continues to move toward zero carbon and zero waste to protect the environment.

“That balance between performance and sustainability is key to Nike ACG,” said Nur Abbas, Nike Design Director, ACG Apparel. “Sustainability was our first filter for materials used in this collection, but we didn’t compromise the identity of ACG style and attitude; wearers can continue to be protected from the elements when exploring awe-inspiring nature, or even wear the apparel beyond a weekend in the outdoors.”

Nike ACG Holiday 2020 includes two sneakers and a range of apparel. Drawing inspiration from Smith Rock, a volcanic structure located in Oregon, a few hours from Nike’s headquarters, the collection is made to act as a versatile layering system during the colder months. Subsequently, each piece is named after a Smith Rock trail, while the area’s rock shadings have influenced the graphic direction.

Leading the footwear assortment is the all-new Mountain Fly GORE-TEX. Designed to handle rocky conditions, the shoe is offered in two colorways with terrain-dyed hues and accents. The pre-existing Air Nasu GORE-TEX then arrives in a new winter colorway.
