Nike All Conditions Gear is committed to providing durable, stylish gear for the outdoors. Of course, getting stoked about the natural world and helping save it can go hand in hand, which sets up the inspiration for the summer 2021 collection: a series of apparel pieces tailormade for Hawaiian adventures, including the ones that get your feet wet. With 85 percent of this year’s collection containing more than 90 percent recycled content, the apparel also helps reduce the material waste that could otherwise land in these stunning locales.
As always, the collection gives you the right amount of muscle to cross over from land to sea, and the right kind of utility to coolly handle real-life situations. Take the Cinder Cone Windshell Jacket and Pant. They’re made from 100 percent recycled, lightweight nylon, include water-repellent and wind-resistant features, and are packable for quick and easy storage. The ACG men’s Lava Tree Lightweight Hoody is made from recycled polyester and provides a baggy, draped profile for the hood and the drop tail to help protect your body against UVs. It also has thumb loops. Why? For a snug, resting posture when you’re thinking about your next trek.
The ACG Mountain Fly Low reappears this season as the ideal footwear for tropical hikes or sandy escapes. It has a responsive React midsole, while the sticky rubber outsole helps you handle the algae madness during rock-hopping. Meanwhile, the Air Deschutz sandal is back for casual hangs on dry land, and its Nike Air unit keeps things comfy.
The ACG summer 2021 collection releases June 7 on nike.com and at select retailers.
