Updates to Nike ACG Angels Rest

  • Carrying a name borrowed from a known trail in Oregon, the Nike ACG Angels Rest is a boot for hiking created ready for any outdoor obstacles. Its suede and mesh upper offers optimal trail protection.
  • Enhancing the user’s performance is a cushioned midsole and outsole. The former renders comfort and the latter provides ground adherence.

Size and fit

The Nike ACG Angels Rest is a men’s-only hiking boot. It is offered in medium (standard) width only. Lengthwise, it is available in whole and half sizes. It fairly runs true to size. The boot uses a traditional lace-up closure for fit adjustment.


The sticky rubber outsole of the Nike ACG Angels Rest hiking boot takes care of traction over rugged terrain. It has a city-and-trail-ready design which grants surefootedness and stability. Numerous tiny protrusions are scattered across the sole which prevents muck from building up. The square lugs at the center provide multidirectional grip. The sole extends upright at the rear and forefoot for enhanced protection.


A cushioned midsole provides comfort and steadiness on and off the trails. Visible on the midsole’s exterior is the ACG (All Conditions Gear) branding. It also features the map topography of Angel’s Rest trail found on the western end of Oregon.


The Nike ACG Angels Rest upper is made of suede and mesh. Its high-cut collar uses a supple fabric which provides comfort and extra protection. Reflective materials are found at the back of the boot and the lateral sides of the midfoot and forefoot.

The closure system of this leather hiker uses rubber eyelets for fit management. A heel tab makes on and off easy.
