Nike’s ACG line has once again provided the perfect canvas for some serious subculture and fashion from the famous sports brand.
This SS18 collection takes influence from some archive and retro pieces, with a vibrant colour palette that seems perfect for the summer sun ahead. Nike also notes an acid house influence, too, as the music genre, celebrated so much for the subculture which it has formed in the past, takes pride of placement within the drop from a sportswear label – evidence of the cultural power Nike has through sport and fashion these days.
Some of the stand-out pieces are reworked items from sports collections of yesteryear, as Nike ACG hop on the vintage sports trend with some from their celebrated back catalogue. Look out for retro ACG graphics coming in the form of a very 90s back logo on t-shirts with the ‘Go Climb a Volcano’ detailing being a particular highlight.
As for footwear, a new grey hiking boot and the ‘Dog Mountain’ hiking sneaker round off a very strong SS18 drop from this strand of Nike. The full collection drops on 1st June.
