Nike Made a Hiking Boot — But It’s Not for Who You’d Think

Hop to it and grab these hiking boots while you can — they’re the freshest ones we’ve seen in a long time.


Nike has long had trail running shoes that many backcountry athletes swear by, but the ACG Ruckel Ridge Go Outside hiking boots are aimed at a slightly different audience. Following trends set by other outdoor companies (and even Adidas), Nike’s latest hiking boot is aimed more at the urban adventurer than the hardcore outdoorsman. Whether you’re looking to go on a light hike near your house or to take a walk to the farmers market down the road, these flashy kicks absorb pressure from rocks, dirt and pavement thanks to Poron Foam, and also protect you from slipping with a GravelRockMoss System that’s built-in to improve traction. And with easy-to-tighten laces, there’s no stopping to fix a loose one, and the pops of yellow along the high collar and the sole are flashy without being too loud.
