Breathably Waterproof Trail Shoes

These Hiking Shoes Offer Rugged Comfort In the Great Outdoors

— June 8, 2021 — Lifestyle
When you encounter a trail shoe that's named after a volcanic mountain, you would be justified in assuming that this is a shoe that is capable of handling the most treacherous terrain and most difficult challenges that nature can throw, and that is most certainly the case with the Nike ACG 'Air Nasu' shoe.

A recent addition to Nike's venerable ' All Conditions Gear' heritage, the ACG 'Air Nasu' shoes use Gore-Tex lining that ensures that your feet will remain totally dry even in slogs through rainy and muddy conditions. However, whilst waterproof shoes can sometimes be accused of creating uncomfortably warm and sweaty conditions for your feet, this is not the case with the 'Air Nasu' shoes thanks to the breathable upper and the marvels of Gore-Tex material in the inner walls of the shoes.

As far as movement is concerned, these trail shoes offer phenomenal balance courtesy the multidirectional lugged tread and shock-thwarting construction that ensure you don't bear the brunt of uneven or rocky terrain. These features are an absolute godsend whether you're hiking up a hill or bushwhacking through the woods, as they give you the ability to make instinctive movements and maneuvers without taking undue risks. What's more, this rugged support doesn't come at the cost of comfort, with featherweight Nike Air cushioning perfectly positioned beneath the heel region to provide optimal comfort for every step that you take.

Elsewhere, the Air Nasu shoes even accommodate the growing popularity of orthotics among runners and hikers, with the cushioned insole designed to easily be slipped out in case you need to use custom orthotics. Further thoughtful features include reflective detailing that boost your visibility in low-lit conditions, enhancing your safety.

By combining tried-and-tested design cues of traditional outdoor shoes with modern trail technology and innovation, the Nike ACG 'Air Nasu' trail shoes blend the best of old and new, enabling you to transition between urban life and the wilderness with consummate ease.
Trend Themes
1. Waterproof Trail Shoes - Developing waterproofing technology for trail shoes that incorporates both breathability and durability for consistent, comfortable protection in all weather.
2. Multidirectional Lugged Tread - Incorporating multidirectional lugged tread into hiking shoes for optimal balance and support on uneven or rocky terrain and to make instinctive movements and maneuvers without taking undue risks.
3. Accommodating Orthotics - Designing shoes with cushioned insoles that can be removed easily to accommodate custom orthotics for wearers with medical or comfort needs.
Industry Implications
1. Outdoor Footwear - Outdoor footwear designers can benefit from using modern materials like Gore-Tex to design shoes that are breathable, durable, and provide secure footing for hikers and runners on all terrains.
2. Waterproofing Technology - Developing waterproofing technology that can be used in various industries outside of footwear that balance breathability, durability, and protection from natural elements.
3. Sports Medicine - Designing shoes with custom cushioning insoles that can easily be removed to accommodate orthotics is an opportunity for sports medicine professionals to improve comfort, reduce injuries, and improve athletic performance.
