Both colorways are made from a synthetic webbed nylon that’s secured by an expansive lacing system with anchors fused to the forefoot’s taped seams. On the “Fossil Stone,” a two-tone look is used with the eponymous hue on the outside and black on the inside; on the “Anthracite” things are kept entirely tonal, save for a few pops of bright infrared. Each also offers a large ACG spellout graphic on the lateral forefoot and a traffic-sign like reflective material on the heel’s triangular logo.
On the lower half, midsoles are made up of ultra-soft React foam, given structure by a stiff carbon fiber Flyplate and protected from the elements by a grippy rubber outsole with a beefed-up waffle traction pattern. This outsole also wraps up and around the toe for extra forefoot support and stability. Heel and tongue tabs aid with ease of entry and removal, and ACG’s signature “All Conditions Means All Conditions” motif is spelled out on the insole to finalize the look.
