After offering a first look at the new Air Skarn back in July, Nike ACG is back with its latest take on the chunky silhouette. The Air Skarn was created in 1997 by Tinker Hatfield and a team of designers, whose aim was to inject a sense of sportiness to the traditional hiking silhouette – the result was a hefty mold that saw a large area of lightweight mesh, enlivening the spirit of outdoor adventure.

Treated with a nebulous “Sequoia/Vivid Purple” colorway, the hiking shoes see a plethora of rugged fabric layers stacked over a substantial midsole. At the top of the sneaker, a touch of black suede is placed at the tongue with subtle “Air” branding next to a mini-Swoosh. Pink and purple highlights appear over rope-style piping that frames the upper collar, wrapping around the heel and looping back up from the edges of the forefoot. Round black laces are contrasted against purple mesh overlays, complete with bright yellow triple-stitching that circles around the top panels. The mudguard comes in black nubuck atop a white rubber midsole, while a “bright citron”-colored insert and a branded heel cap finish off the sneaker.

The Nike ACG Air Skarn “Sequoia/Vivid Purple” is currently available at atmos-tokyo.com for $112 USD as well as at nike.com.

Elsewhere, Nike’s Air Ghost Racer has returned in a retro “Racer Blue” colorway.
