Just last night Sneaker News gave you a look at a monster collaboration between Nike Sportswear, Supreme, and fragment design. It seems Hiroshi Fujiwara’s been keeping busy with Nike because he’s got another collaboration with Nike coming in the form of the Nike Zoom Meriweather, the freshly designed Nike ACG product that doubles as a weather-resistant boot and stylish footwear option. The Meriweather, armed with Trailframe, Nike Zoom, and a medial-side zipper is constructed with buttery grey suede and obsidian and red accents with white roped laces. The fragment design x Nike Zoom Meriweather is slated for a November 2011 release at select spots so check out the images after the jump and let us know what you think. via tenisufki.

How did Nike ACG branch out to the fashion/lifestyle circles? Who knew a pair of trail sneakers or bulky boots would become such a fashion statement and even a wardrobe staple in some regions of the world. Some releases, despite the ACG branding, were designed with ‘lifestyle’ partially in mind, like the Air Force 1 High ‘Duckboot’ and ACG Woodside Boot. For the Fall 2011, you can expect a lot from Nike ACG and Nike Sportswear with the outdoor motif in mind, including a number of new models and designs that’ll have you rocking heat while keeping your feet warm through the harsher conditions. Check out the all new Nike Zoom Meriweather, a rugged trail boot with the super-comfy TrailFrame support, Zoom cushioning, and a vertical zipper on the medial wall of the shoe, and you can expect at least two vibrant colorways in maroon/black/hot red and olive/black/neon. Another notable upcoming release is the Nike Air Royal Mid Boot, which features the same slimmed-down upper with a rugged, trail-ready footbed. There’s plenty more to see after the jump so take a good look at what’s to come from Nike ACG and Nike Sportswear and let us know what catches your eye. via END.
