Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low: A tough one even without GTX
Made with an aggressive sole, the rugged hiking-inspired Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low won’t keep you confined within the city. While it’s designed with an ultra-cushioned sole that offers tons of comfort, it taps your adventurous side as well to go exploring the outdoors. The waterproof Gore-Tex layer is stripped off to make its cover light while preventing your feet from getting sweaty and toasty.
Low-top Mountain Fly against similar styles
- Nike ACG Air Terra Antarktik, designed after winter jackets, is as trendsetting as the ACG Mountain Fly. Both are wrapped in durable, water-resistant ripstop nylon and a sole that grips on different surface types. Terra Antarktik's high-top is lined with Gore-Tex, making it a bit pricier than the Mountain Fly Low.
- Nike ACG Mountain Fly Gore-Tex is the high-top hiker version that comes with a sock finish. If you prefer a pair that will hold you down in snow or rain, go for the ankle-high. But if you want more breathability, the Mountain Fly Low will give you that. The GTX won’t come lightly to the wallet than its slip-on sibling, given its technical features and height.
