NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR
Made for the modern urban commuter, the NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR Men’s Shoe draws inspiration from ACG’s legacy of utility-based footwear.
A water-repellent textile upper helps keep moisture out for weather protection without the bulk and weight of a boot.
The lightweight upper provides four-way stretch for a flexible, sock-like fit. A slip-on construction with magnetically fastened straps and a toggle system makes it easy to quickly get in and out of the shoe.
Rugged outsole pattern inspired by the NikeLab ACG Tallac Flyknit
Lightweight foam midsole for comfort
Rubber outsole for traction

Inspiration for the complex design of the ACG.07.KMTR, the latest version of NikeLab’s all-conditions shoe and the first iteration of the new Nike Komyuter silhouette, came in the form of a brown paper bag. It’s a prime example of how sophisticated solutions can stem from straightforward, functional suggestions.

A proposition for increased access and ease led designers to place a bag around a foot and scrunch it to form the shape of a shoe. This elementary act informed an inventive outcome: facilitating the metamorphosis of a single-piece upper from a wide-open entry to a supportive closed state would result in a new performance silhouette.

Ultimately, the designers fashioned the ACG.07.KMTR with a four-way stretch water-resistant upper shell that conforms to the foot through an integrated draw cord and stabilizes via a forefoot strap equipped with a Fidlock magnetic buckle.

Though the structure of the system is complex in its build, it’s incredibly simple in its use: Unbuckle and open the shoe, insert foot and pull the cord. Viola.

“This shoe is water resistant, light, flexible, easy to put on, has great traction and introduces a new aesthetic,” says Nike NSW footwear designer, Gerald Sullivan. “Moreover, it reduces functional elements to bare necessity — one doesn’t need the distractions of complicated entry and lockdown systems when moving around the city.”

To understand the origin of the ACG.07.KMTR’s premise is to appreciate its broad parameters. The shoe was created for all-day urban wear in a range of environments. This includes flash rains and temperature shifts, and everything from hard concrete sidewalks to a variety of indoor floorings. It also takes into account that the wearer could easily cover more ground over the course of a day’s action than an elite athlete does in a training session.

Therein lies the complexity: In order to facilitate a shoe with high function and high comfort, translating the brown paper bag to high performance is something akin to a science experiment.

“We trialed a number of closure systems, and I began thinking about how a parachute unfurls and wondered how that might operate in reverse. Ultimately what worked best was pulling the cord through the shoe via a single hinge. This act molds the bag-like upper into form,” explains Sullivan. “Secondary lockdown is achieved through the magnetic buckle, which is not only low profile, but adds a distinct panache to the shoe’s form.”

The ACG.07.KMTR’s function guides its stance. The upper transforms from its loose, open state into a sleek, fast silhouette that marries gracefully to a full-rubber bottom with wet traction lugs (derived from the tooling of the Nike Tallac Flyknit ACG). Compositionally, this build simultaneously conveys comfort in speed and a readiness to take on anything. Reflective hits on the logo and welding seams help ensure the all-day, all-challenges equipment is balanced with requisite safety features. As a full package, it is a far cry from a brown paper bag.

The ACG.07.KMTR launches May 18 on and at NikeLab retail locations. The Nike Komyuter silhouette will release in a variety of colorways through summer ’17.

Damian Cruz says:

Soooooooooooooooo many other shoes that deserve that title lmao. Vetements X Reebok fury pump, Vetements X reebok instapump, Ronnie Fieg UB, Yeezy runner (not the 350s), The Balenciaga speed trainer, Gucci Ace lows, rick X adidas walrus, ozweego Bunny, and so much more. These are hot trash compared to all of the shoes I just listed. I love your videos but this one irked me lmao.

chan ho says:

Hes kicks, you can find the Nike ACG Zoom Tallac Flyknit in Nike outlet.

Rx Barreras says:

why would you wear it loose? Hypebeast much? 😀 Great Review though! Most informative so far. I think

DarthTagle says:

Speaking of unique shoes though, do you think you’ll ever do a review on the Puma tsugi Shinsei ?

JaylinS56 says:

Kinda looks like the GP Gloves to me

Dusty Bones says:

Those remind of kyries

Eric Walburg says:

Would they be a shoe you could wear hiking or are they not durable enough and able to withstand the ruggedness of a trail?

Aubrey Graham says:

I’m 19 and needed knee reconstruction, so yeah I need cushion.

Justin Gipaya says:

Definitely go down a 1/2 size. Love my pair also copped the brown pair. Wore them on a rainy day and overall perfect for the Pacific Northwest weather.

Its Waiterrz says:

idk why but i really like these

D. D. says:

Excellent thorough review

Kirsty says:

I like the fact they’re so different.

Jonathan Crouch says:

They need to retro them old school ACG’s from the early 90’s.They had a green pair and orange pair.I love those!!!!!!!

PusdienlaikaŠovs says:

Instructions unclear, dick stuck in toaster

Rabarberellum 101 says:

Hi Hes, do the folds of the tongue give any hinder when they are pressed hard into your feet by the strap? Besides that it seems like they made a big fuzz with the tongue and pull laces but forgot that the strap prohibits them to be any real additional value to the model. Because without the pull laces and fold tongue the shoe would be and feel almost identical.

Nate Serpant says:

I love these shoes. They actually look really good on you, Hes. The blue is still my favorite

John 117 says:

reminds me of the gloves and i love the gloves

jack dom says:

akaTRENT says:

Good stuff as always!

Gia 28 says:

the blk ones loom way better

begs100 says:

These could be game changers. On foot looks awesome

Greg Brinkr says:

So much effort put into inventing a whole new upper with an innovative lacing system, then you throw it on that extremely boring midsole and wrap it in pleather. I don’t know Nike nice idea but I’m not sold. Great video .

Caesar Owens says:

Look like something a ninja would wear

Corey Brooks says:

I like the box more than the shoe. Good review though
