Conceived in 1978 as a tool to help a group of climbers scale the world’s 2nd highest mountain in K-2, Nike adapted some of its technologies and skills in lightweight and comfortable performance footwear design and re-applied them to create their first ever hiking boot. The Air Magma was created based partly on the notion that “every pound you put on your feet is like putting six pounds on your back”. The original Air Magma featuring a thick cut, oiled and waxed upper with red laces to signify flowing lava from a freshly erupted volcano. Returning some 30 years later and with strong influences from the 20-something Nike ACG division, the Air Magma Rip-Stop now falls under the Nike Sportswear division. Some of the highlighted features include a revamped waterproof rip-stop material upper in five original ACG colorways. Available soon at Nike Sportswear flagship stores and select NSW retailers.
