Nike Revives The ACG Air Mowabb For An Updated 30th Anniversary Reissue

Aug 24, 2021

Category: Gear

Tinker Hatfield is an undisputed sneaker design legend, responsible for penning a slew of some of the most iconic shoes from the late ‘80s and early ‘90s’ “footwear golden era” including the Nike Air Max 90, Air Trainer 1, Air Max 1, Jordan III, IV, and XI, amongst a slew of other legendary kicks. And with three decades now having passed since its debut, Nike has opted to revive a retro Hatfield-designed model from its All Conditions Gear sub-brand, giving way to a contemporary reissue of the ACG Air Mowabb.

This revived silhouette from 1991 looks surprisingly modern — largely thanks to the original Air Mowabb being objectively ahead of its time, sporting elements like an inner bootie that’s mated to the upper and front and rear pull tabs. Despite maintaining its outward appearance, the 2021 reissue has received several material updates, with a stretchier collar and a softer foam comprising the midsole — traits that make the shoe easier to put on and remove, as well as more comfortable. Nike is also bringing the ACG model back in a number of different throwback color schemes, including the “OG colorways” Rattan Birch and Twine. Priced at $160, the Nike ACG Air Mowabb will be available for purchase starting on September 3.

Purchase: $160
