About Nike ACG
When Nike introduced their ACG (All Conditions Gear) line of products in 1989, this brought a range of sportswear items to the market that would be suitable for use in a variety of environments. While other more dedicated products have traditionally been available for snow, dry weather, wet ground and other difficult terrains and types of weather, Nike ACG lines have always been about allowing the user to adapt to any kind of situation - this includes both clothing and footwear. Nike ACG clothing is manufactured in a range of top-garments and items that can be worn under existing clothing, such as body-warming gilets and thinner rain jackets. Many of these items are manufactured from 100% nylon for its warming and waterproof qualities, while more organic products are used in any clothing that is designed to allow the body to retain heat (this includes grey goose down). Lighter ACG jackets and trousers are designed to resist water while allowing heat to escape from the body underneath, and this makes them suitable for long periods of activity. This manufacturer's footwear has always been designed to make an eye-catching fashion statement, and the ACG element means that they provide the necessary grip on a wide variety of different surfaces. Their sneakers and trainers are used by people in a number of different sporting disciplines, and the overall design of ACG footwear allows sudden shocks and movements to be absorbed by the sole of the shoe, instead of the user's heel. For more leisurely activities, ACG footwear is also available for hiking and general everyday use.
