Facts

The NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR is a stylish summer shoe for men who traverse the concrete jungles of the modern world day in and day out. It comes in US men’s sizes. From the looks of it alone, one can tell that the shoe has excellent hold and support.

With an upper that is made of waterproof and wear-resistant nylon, the NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR provides protection without the usual weight and volume. This is entirely new for a shoe that is designed for the outdoors where bulk and weight used to be the norm.

Arising from Nike’s lineup of mid-top sneakers, it neatly hugs the figure of the foot, achieving that streamlined look that goes well with any casual outfit. Indeed, this shoe is a friend to those who just don’t want to think much about which clothing item goes best with what.

But that does not mean that the NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR falls short when it comes to attitude. The heavily textured midsole is perhaps the most prominent indication of the atmospheric harshness that the shoe is designed to take. Yes, the shoe is neat and subtle, but it surely stands its ground especially when faced with tempestuous circumstances.

There are a lot of slip-on shoes out there but the NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR’s clever incorporation of a unique system of cords and a buckle-up strap sets it apart from the rest.

The cords can be adjusted by pulling from the back of the shoe. The good old buckle-up strap hugs the instep to provide a more secure fit.

Perhaps there is no doubt in anybody’s mind by now that Nike as a company thrives because of the love for innovation that conveniently dominates their ranks. Through the years, numerous technologies have been put forward to provide comfort without sacrificing style, drawing inspirations from something as mundane as building architecture to things as unlikely as airplanes.

The NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR, for its part, got its light-bulb moment from one of the simplest things there are: brown paper bags. The vine has it that designers behind the ingenious NikeLab creations such as this shoe really wrapped an actual paper bag around a model’s foot to take a good look at what would become the 07 KMTR’s silhouette.

The NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR is made with the modern commuter’s safety and enjoyment in mind. True to Nike ACG’s commitment to provide all-conditions gear, this model is actually the line’s first bid at expanding and proving dominance over the concrete jungles of the contemporary world, especially during the sweltering heat of summer. It is designed in conjunction with ACRONYM’s Errolson Hugh, and his touch of creativity almost ensures for the model the appeal that it needs to capture and continuously engage the market.

Released in the second quarter of 2017, the NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR features a unique system of cords where adjustments are made in the heel area. It also has an instep buckle. These may just be another set of innovations from Nike; but to fans, they may already be hinting quite subtly of what may come next from the ACG line: innovative kicks that require ordinary observers to (what else?) buckle up, unless they want to be blown away.

  • The NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR has a rubber outsole that features a rugged traction pattern that draws inspiration from the pattern found on ACG’s Tallac Flyknit.
  • The Nike Swoosh on the upper is coated with a reflective material, and it serves as an additional safety feature.
