In its recent history, the Nike ACG Air Moc has been a shoe ripe for experimentation, deployed in canvas, leather, tech fleece and everything in between. On the occasions when the model needs dressing up, however, suede is the go-to, exactly the case with the upcoming “Orange Mauve.”
Like the rest of the ACG line, the Air Moc caters to the explorers, all-terrain and all-climate functionality the highest priority in their design. Given that, Nike has proven that still want a good looking shoe at the end of that equation.
For this particular pair, the outdoorsy theme of the line is really driven home. The gradient from mauve to orange at work on the one-piece upper is clearly meant to summon imagery of dusk skyscapes. Elsewhere, those same principles of practicality remain constant; grippy insoles and outsoles combined with a rope pull tab ensuring no-frills performance on your next trip into the great outdoors.
The “Orange Mauve” Nike ACG Air Moc isn’t confirmed for any specific date, but you can anticipate coming across them in the next few weeks. Expect a retail price of $90 if and when you do.
