Who should buy the ACG Nasu 2

This kick is Nike’s response to the ever-changing demands of the outdoor world. The ACG Nasu 2 is beneficial for:

  • Guys and gals who want just one pair for both city explorations and hiking escapades.
  • Individuals who prefer to hike in the dark (the shoe has reflective overlays).
  • Adventurers whose feet sweat easily.
  • Those who need extra stability, particularly around the heel.

Who should not buy it

The ACG Nasu 2 is completely devoid of a waterproof liner. Consider the equally sporty yet highly impermeable Columbia Facet 30 Outdry instead. If you need a supportive hiker that also provides enhanced control on descents, try the Merrell Moab 2 GTX.

The ACG Nasu 2’s extraordinary comfort

This hiker from Nike has mighty supple confines, according to a vlogger. He attributes this immense comfort level mainly to the shoe's React midsole.

Fantastic breathability

To a professional gear reviewer, the ACG Nasu 2 has exceptional breathability. He pumped smoke into the shoe's confines, and it passed through from the inside out instantly.

But its support system is lacking

One experienced tester finds the ACG Nasu 2’s arch zone (inner part) rather uninspiring. He said that it struggled to keep his arches from rolling in.
