|Air Zoom Tallac Nike ACG have introduced waterproof, highly breathable backpacking boots that weigh less than 1000 grams. The Air Zoom Tallac is the culmination of their 30-year quest for the lightest weight in athletic footwear. It is the first boot totally engineered to give as much support and protection as a trekking boot at the weight of a running shoe. The upper marries a light yet durable textile with a Gore-Tex XCR liner, buttressed by an injected TPU exo-skeleton. The ankle support comes from an innovation inspired by Nike's basketball programme. Realizing that ankle inversion, or rollover, is as much a concern in hiking as it is in basketball, ACG applied the concept of a strategically placed external chassis to support the ankle only where it's needed, allowing the rest of the upper to remain free of heavy materials. The lightest weight materials were also applied in the comfort and cushioning areas of the shoe, including a Phylon midsole, Nike Air in the heel and a low profile Zoom Air bag in the forefoot. A full-length shank between the midsole and outsole increases stability and rigidity. Weight savings continues down to an outsole design that places low lugs only where absolutely necessary, to provide biting traction when moving fast over varied terrain. The Air Zoom Zallac comes in sizes 6-13,14 and 15.|
|Air Divide Designed for walkers looking for the best in lightweight trail fit, protection and traction, the Air Divide is made from lightweight and breathable mesh with a synthetic upper and midfoot and heel webbing that can be laced for extra support and there are a variety of lacing options that can be used for a customized fit. There's an encapsulated Nike AIR cushioning in heel and a rubber outsole with Nike Waffle pattern that allows for great traction on a variety of surfaces. Available in sizes 6-13,14 and 15 (men's) and sizes 5-10,11 and 12 (women's).|
Air Switchblade Low profile, lightweight approach shoes, the Air Switchblade has a sticky rubber climbing outsole with medial edge zones, a stiff shank plate for stability and torsional rigidity, and a comfortable, yet durable, suede-leather/textile upper. A heel-pull webbing system offers a custom fit and collapses for easy packing. Available in sizes 6-13,14 and15.
Air Alvord Designed for the trail enthusiast looking for the best in lightweight trail fit, protection and traction, the Alvord has a breathable mesh and leather upper with durable leather overlays on the tip and heel for extra foot protection.
