Who should not buy the Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low

Nike fans are not pleased with the pair's heavyweight and rigid nature. Consider the Nike Air Max Goadome for a lightweight pair or the Nike ACG Zoom Terra Zaherra if you're after a sneaker that's more flexible.

Built to endure

Many sneaker fans are appreciative of the Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low's durability. Its toughness from the rubber material that wraps the bottom and above the tip of the shoe makes it a fine work shoe, male purchasers say.

The Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low has a nice bounce to it

According to some hiking enthusiasts, this shoe is bouncy in every stride which reduces any form of pressure on their feet. The nice bounce is brought by its Nike React Foam element in the middle layer.

Bring power to your every step

Some sneaker fans commented that the shoe delivers a smooth ride. They said the shoe ensures the power in their every step, making pushing forward easy. This is brought by its Vaporfly tech right below the forefoot.

No heel slippage at all

Nike fans attested that the Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low allows no heel slippage at all. This is due to its lace system that wraps the feet securely for a lockdown fit.

With this, Nike fans find this pair one of the Nike slip-ons that pose no struggle slipping in and out of.

The Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low is breezy

The majority of verified buyers praised the shoe's breathability. Thanks to its perforated fabric that takes up the place of Gore-Tex, this shoe is more ventilated than the high-top waterproof version.

Safety at night? Check

Quite heavy

A group of sneaker fans is not pleased with the shoe's 422g weight. With the lots of details it holds, the Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low is far from being light.

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 more than its slip-on sibling, given its technical features and height.
