Nike has brought out a new retro-themed ACG line to compliment their tech wear oriented designs. The pieces are a fun, colorful addition to Nike’s offerings for the season bringing neon colors and trail running inspired designs from Nike’s ACG archive back to the forefront. The Shell shorts are a good example of the new design ethos set out by the ACG sub-line. Priced at $65, these shorts are available at Mr Porter and Nike.
The Errolson Designed NikeLab ACG line returns with a strong 2017 Holiday season. Just in time for wintry weather, the collection includes the usual mix of technical minded items including shell jackets with mesh front pockets, layering vests, as well as color-blocked track pants with cargo pockets. It’s also good to see that alongside the usual men’s selection, ACG is adding womenswear to the line. A patterned balaclava rounds out the items with prices ranging from $70USD to up to $700 for the shells. You can preview the entire collection on Nike’s site HERE meaning the collection will be dropping real soon.

Nike ACG is set to release it’s Spring/Summer 2017 range tomorrow. I previously covered the 07 CMTR sneaker on this site, but now we get a better look at what else is in the range.

Nikelab quietly dropped new items from the ACG collection today. The product is in-line with the new design ethos and direction set by Matt Parker and Errolson Hugh (leader designer at Acronym). The ACG tech shirting features a water resistant nylon material with details like discrete zippered pockets and articulated sleeves . The pants and crewneck play off the Nike tech fleece fabric and are slick updates to the standard tech fleece designs. Best of all, the price point on the gear seems to have gone down a good 20-25% from the debut collection making the ACG line a more attractive value to techwear enthusiasts.
