Nike has showcased the new Nike ACG Air Zoom AO, an amphibious go-anywhere shoe new for 2020.
This new shoe takes inspiration from past Nike cult favourites and new performance solutions in regards to adaptability, drainage, grip.
Laces are concealed in a system similar to the Nike Phantom VNM football boot. The sole unit takes lessons from the Nike 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.
Quick-pull lacing and a bootie construction also support the amphibious functionality of the Nike ACG Air Zoom AO.
The Nike ACG Air Zoom AO releases on July 9.
