Nike’s outdoor division, founded by legendary designer Tinker Hatfield, set out for Iceland, one of the most remote places on our planet, which became a source of inspiration for the development of the Nike ACG winter collection. The sea, lakes, glaciers and volcanos – I can’t think of a better way to test a product line called All Conditions Gear – and the results speak for themselves. The functional, elegant and made from 75% sustainable materials collection is online right now.
Nike ACG is a brand I personally love, and I bet my colleagues at Footshop would say the same. Why? It combines everything we like. First-grade functional clothing that look great and are at the same time universal for any kind of terrain you’re travelling through, be it mountain ranges or sand dunes. It’s not just a brand, it’s a lifestyle. So we wanted to present the collection to you in the following lookbook.
This year’s Nike ACG winter collection continues in the trend of sustainability – for the most part (about 75%), the clothing’s made from sustainable materials – most often combining recycled polyester and nylon fibres. On paper, this looks great. But because outdoor clothing is mainly about functionality, for this collection, Nike teamed up with Polartec, which is a brand that specializes in heat isolation layers and breathability of clothing. So rest assured, you’ll stay comfortable.
Scientists predict that during the next 200 years, all of Iceland’s glaciers could melt. So the ACG team presents apparel that’s considerate towards Mother Nature – including the Misery Ridge jacket, Lunar Lake down jacket and Mountain Fly GTX boots. Click the button under the lookbook captured by Kubo Križo while climbing Sněžka, the Czech republic’s highest mountain, to find out more about the whole collection.
