Nike ACG has us preparing to bring in the new summer season with a collection that redefines our experience with the outdoors. The brand continues to expand on its mindful commitment to the environment using materials sourced from sustainable practices. Recycled polyester fibers, organic cotton, and breathable fabrics are only some of the quality materials that make up this versatile collection.
The Nike ACG Summer Collection really hones in on one idea here; that outerwear’s range is boundless. Designed with different terrains in mind, the gear is a multifaceted capsule inspired by the landscape of Spirit Lake in Washington State. Furthermore, the breathable apparel and footwear is custom-made for the scorching summertime months. When designing the collection, Nike ACG kept three qualities top of mind: breathability, freedom of motion and quick-thinking utility. With these cool and light garments, the line aspires to make the outdoors more accessible than ever.
Now that we’re geared up for our next adventure, let’s dig into some of our favorite articles. Key pieces in the capsule include the trail pants, cargo khaki short, packable insulated jacket, the new ACG Lowcate and some essential graphic tees. The cargo shorts take a stretchable fabric reinforced at the seams to take on any rocky trails. The water-repellent bottoms are made with 100% sustainable materials, using a blend of recycled polyester, recycled nylon and organic cotton fibers.
The packable insulated jacket also makes it to the top of our list, with ingenious technology to prepare for temperature changes. The piece is finished off with a full-length zipper and a playful print crafted with 100% recycled nylon fibers. We also can’t forget about the new ACG Lowcate – the essential hiking shoe now upgraded with a lug pattern on the outsole. Lastly, the graphic tees keep on message with sustainability, made from 75% polyester fibers.
With Nike’s gear looking more adaptable than ever, we’re ready to hit the trails with the Nike ACG Summer Collection. The collection released May 28 throughout North America and Europe, and is available now in select countries and on nike.com.
