Set To Drop: Nike ACG React Terra Gobe & Nike ACG Wildwood “Teal Nebula”

Crafted with the outdoors in mind, these kicks are ready for all conditions.

The Nike ACG line is designed to be used in all conditions, and by all conditions, Nike means all conditions. In the ACG line, you’ll be able to find versatile, lightweight and water-resistant footwear and apparel that is designed for peak outdoor performance. Whether you’re about to go for a hefty hike or simply enduring a rainy day in the city, ACG is meant to be worn.

The Nike ACG React Terra Gobe has served as a potent part of the line’s recent efforts to bridge the gap between their classic designs and modern day Nike materials. Over the past few months, Nike has released a couple colorways of the silhouette, and now Nike’s back again, bringing the ACG React Terra Gobe in an earthy gold and black color scheme. The water-resistant synthetic base is covered in an earth gold tone, while the criss-crossing lacing system, throat overlay, rubber heel tab, mudguard, and heel are all dressed in stark black for contrast. Bright blue accents the heel’s triangular logo, tongue tab, and mudguard Swoosh. A tan Nike React midsole with black speckles provides exemplary comfort, while durable black rubber on the outsole promises solid grip. Adventure-ready, these shoes offer foam padding at the ankle, and the silhouette is complete with 3M reflective hints.

Debuted in 1989 as a direct descendent of the 1982 Nike Air Escape, the Nike Air Wildwood ACG might have been designed as an off-road runner but it quickly gained a reputation as a go-anywhere staple sneaker. Rugged details, punctuated by its sawtooth Waffle sole, and pops of bold color grant discernible personality to the modest silhouette—just enough to command attention, but never demand it. Named after a 30 mile trail, the Nike ACG Wildwood exemplifies what it means to persevere.

The Nike ACG Wildwood “Teal Nebula” allows the color blocking to complement the silhouette. Blending a soft tan leather upper with light grey detailing on the eyestays and a durable black mudguard, these Nike sneakers present a look that’s certainly ready for all offroad activities. The durable leather upper comes with perforated holes on the sides for a more breathable feel. A bold retro teal graces the Swoosh, tongue badge, heel counter, and eyelets. On the heel of the sneaker, the iconic Nike Air logo gives another dimension to the shoe. A white midsole with ACG branding and a toothed black outsole finalize the look. 

The Nike ACG React Terra Gobe and the Nike ACG Wildwood “Teal Nebula” will be released Monday September 23rd in-store and online at WWW.DTLR.COM.
