7 reasons to buy

  • Waterproof: Nike ACG Mountain Fly Gore-Tex keeps the feet dry under the rain and snow. 
  • Sticky sole: Though its aggressive sole won’t grip on icy surfaces, it holds well on snowy and muddy grounds. 
  • Soft cushioning: Its underside feels cushy like its Nike React siblings and Vaporfly tech-infused sneakers. A wear tester describes that it offers the same feel as the Alphafly Next running shoe.  
  • Reflective: Being visible on dark terrains and alleys is not an issue as the grid pattern at the bottom part of the upper glows when hit by light. 
  • Durable: The rubber edges at the base of the shoe are firm and long-lasting.
  • User-friendly: Cinching it down is easy with its elastic lace and toggle. 
  • Sustainable: Although it isn’t breathable, this shoe allows the earth to breathe by utilizing recycled materials.

1 reasons not to buy

  • Tight toebox: Its forefoot cover is slightly low, so the rubber around the toe interferes with movement.  

Bottom line

Nike gets stylish and innovative with the ACG Mountain Fly Gore-Tex. It will keep your feet cozy, warm, and dry under wet and snowy conditions. This kickass won’t dampen your spirits given its sleekly done, foot-hugging build. It isn’t all style without substance as it’s one of the waterproof kicks madly equipped with a running-grade, responsive sole, and hiking-inspired tread format.

Nike ACG Mountain Fly GTX: An all-rounder travel buddy 

Like most shoes under Nike’s All Conditions Gear (ACG) division, the Mountain Fly Gore-Tex won't let those active feet go idle. It’s made to keep you going even under inclement weather with its noticeably combative-appearing sole.

There's no need to switch footwear if you decided to take a walk from work to the outdoors. You can have this as your travel buddy as it won't leave your feet freezing and soaking wet in cold and rainy environments.

Packed with benefits...

  • Lined with GTX right below the ankle, it blocks dust, cold, water, snow, and mud from entering the shoe. It keeps your entire feet protected from the elements. 
  • Tough rubber that extends from the sole to the shoe tip is ready for abrasive road conditions. 
  • Central lugs are designed to grip different surface types and provide stable footing. 
  • It almost lets you fly with Zoom Vaporfly Trail Frame, releasing energy that propels the foot forward efficiently.
  • The foam component also found in Nike React kicks buffers the foot from impact. It protects the foot and legs from any form of discomfort.
  • You can take advantage of its stretchable cinch cord and pull tabs for an easy on and off. 
  • Reflective elements are peppered around the shoe to make you visible in dark areas.

...as well as limitations

  • Though it appears in a high-top form, its waterproof lining will only keep you covered below the ankle. 
  • It isn’t as breathable as the low-top variation.
  • The brand claims this kick isn’t made for use as a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
