Nike Air Wildwood ACG: From the wilds to the runways
In 1989, Nike released a running and outdoor training shoe called Wildwood, a direct descendant of the Nike Pegasus. It was named after the running trail found in Oregon that is regularly included in America's best running routes.
The Wildwood was launched as part of the All Condition Gear shoes or the Nike ACG series. It used new design ideas and superior materials to withstand various outdoor environments.
In 2019, the Swoosh revamped it. Now dubbed as the Nike Air Wildwood ACG, it is a part of the growing catalog of Nike running-inspired kicks.
What's in it?
Like numerous Nike kicks, the Air Wildwood ACG features several remarkable details, making it among the fashionable pairs in the brand's arsenal:
- It features a blend of authentic and synthetic leather upper materials similar to the original 1989 model.
- On its midsole is Nike's Air-Sole unit combined with foam for superb underfoot comfort and impact absorption.
- The perforations on the quarter panels and vamp offer a degree of ventilation.
- It also has a special sawtooth waffle outsole that gives traction.
- Nike has several modest colorways of Nike Air Wildwood ACG to provide wearers a laidback yet distinct vibe.
