Today we get a closer look at what is known as the NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR. This brand new Nike creation gives us a glimpse of what the future holds. It’s a runner with a modern look and feel derived from the NikeLab ACG line.

The shoe has plenty of unique features but some that I’d like to point out include magnetic buckle and innovative fastening system that act as the primary lacing system.

A fun fact about this model is that it was designed/inspired by a plastic bag. Nike mentioned that their designers put a bag around a foot and formed it into the shape of a shoe. They wanted to create a shoe with a wide point of entry but that also had a snug fit.

 

“We trialed a number of closure systems, and I began thinking about how a parachute unfurls and wondered how that might operate in reverse. Ultimately what worked best was pulling the cord through the shoe via a single hinge. This act molds the bag-like upper into form,” explains Nike designer Gerald Sullivan.

You won’t have to wait much longer to try out a pair since the shoe is scheduled to make its debut on May 18th along with new ACG apparel. We’re really looking forward to this release, you should too.
