Has there been a time in the last five, ten or even fifteen years that you’ve been more excited about Nike All Conditions Gear than right now?! ACG is straight killing it with more and better new designs, and now that the roster is fleshed out with Zoom Meriwethers, Lunar MacLeays and Air Mac Conquers, it’s time for a leader to rise and herald a new golden age for Swoosh outdoor gear.

In terms of both Nike’s own naming conventions and their material applications, we’ve seen plenty of ‘premium’ All Conditions Gear boots over the years. But when the above pictured model made an unexpected debut this past weekend, it carried with it a sense of style and performance befitting a name like the Nike ACG Premium Boot. These joints are crafted with VacTech molding on the upper that’s shielded from the elements by a GoreTex sockliner, and when paired with a full-length Max Air cushion, represents the pinnacle combination of style and function from the Swoosh’s outdoor line. Have a closer look at this Midnight Fog and Dark Copper colorway after the jump and look for them at top Nike Sportswear dealers like Miami’s ShoeGallery.

Models like the Lava Dome, Air Magma and Air Talaria have been with us for so long, they’ve come to define Nike All Conditions Gear‘s signature look. From the bold original colorways to their impeccable lines, these designs have so much good will built up that when newer ones hit shelves in conjunction with ACG’s Nike Sportswear-housed revival, some sneakerheads didn’t know what to do with something as crazy as, say, the Flywire-equipped Ashiko. But with last year’s Lunar MacLeay, we got a look at what was to come from the Swoosh’s outdoor division, a sleek yet functional design whose molded lines give way to a new kind of sophistication as yet unseen on an ACG Boot.
Fast forward a over a year to today and we’re in the midst of a full-on All Conditions revival, upcoming releases like the Zoom Meriweather, Manoa ACG and Air Max Conquer all bearing the signs of a world to come where a model like the one pictured above could just sneak up on you totally by surprise. The new Nike ACG Premium Boot looks the part of its name with a premium VacTech leather upper that gives way to Gore-Tex waterproof lining and rides a full-length Max Air cushion. This first Midnight Fog and Dark Copper colorway looks perfect with khakis and should do just as well with pretty much any shade of denim you could throw at them when you pick up a pair at select NSW retailers including Extra Butter.
