What to Know
Encouraging athletes to create a new relationship with the outdoors, the Nike ACG summer collection helps expand the definition of sport and recreation.
Key pieces in the collection include a cargo khaki short, trail pants, a packable insulated jacket, the new ACG Lowcate, and, of course, a handful of graphic tees.
Nike ACG is committed to designing stylish and durable gear for the outdoors. With versatile pieces inspired by the rugged landscape of Spirit Lake in Washington State, the collection helps athletes find their own adventure.
One thing’s for sure about the outdoors: there’s no playbook. Different geographic locations around the world require different gear. In a similar way, there’s no playbook for the approach you take on your adventure. The summer 2022 ACG collection, which features a wide range of apparel and footwear, is designed to stock you up on cool, breathable gear to go about your adventure in any way you choose.
Three qualities that are important for the hot summertime months: Breathability, freedom of motion and quick-thinking utility. Apparel pieces like the cargo pant use a woven design with stretchable, reinforced seams to help keep you comfortable in dry, rocky conditions (Cordura fabric at the knees keeps those caps safe). The new ACG Lowcate can handle all sorts of rocky terrain thanks to the beefed-up lug pattern on the outsole, while the midfoot plate helps provide stability underfoot. Even warmer pieces like the packable insulated jacket were created with the kind of ingenious detailing that keeps you prepared for those sudden changes in temperature; a full-length zipper to the top of the head helps you keep out a chilling nighttime wind.
By designing for all kinds of summertime conditions, Nike ACG is designed to remove barriers for those who want to get outside. The outdoors doesn’t need to be so unapproachable. It also doesn’t need to look a certain way. The thoughtful function behind the season’s collection helps everyone choose their own summertime adventure.
