Officially the first iteration of the new Nike Komyuter silhouette, the ACG.07.KMTR features a four-way stretch water-resistant upper shell that is first secured by a drawstring at the heel and then by a forefoot strap with a Fidlock magnetic buckle. While it may sound complex, the system is remarkably simple in action, taking inspiration from unlikely sources – including parachutes and the humble brown paper bag. Living up it is ACG title, the model features wet traction lugs in its full-rubber bottom, to ensure maximum grip in all conditions.
Nike have confirmed that a variety of other Komyuter colourways will release over the coming months.
