Nike’s next generation ACG trail boot for Fall 2011 is dubbed the Zoom Meriwether. Available in three standout colorways, the boot is built for all-terrain needs and will be produced in purple, tan and green.
Nike adopts an all-new padded ankle collar for support, ACG branding on the tongue, and a waterproof side-entry zipper for easy access. Timed to release along with the Nike x fragment design Meriwether boots, expect these to be a bit cheaper as they’re scheduled to hit stores later this year.
