Nike makes hiking boots?

Yes, they sure do. I went to an outlet once to buy a pair of hiking boots for a backpacking trip. There weren't any 'hiking' or 'outdoor' stores, so I was getting a bit worried. There was the Nike Outlet, but I would have never expected them to have anything for hiking trips.

To my surprise, Nike has the ACG line -- All Climate Gear. One of the people that worked there showed me to the isle that had two boots that Nike produced. The isle of course was one that I have never walked down in at the Nike Outlet. At first, I was unsure about going with Nike for my hiking shoe. This couldn't possibly be what they were good at. Maybe basketball or running shoes, but hiking?

I did some research on my phone while at the store and saw that the Nike Zoom Ashiko was a pretty good shoe that received good reviews throughout the internet. The shoes retail for $190 and were selling that weekend at the outlet for $60. I couldn't pass it up.

The first two test hikes that I broke my boots in, my feet hurt significantly. From a 1 to a 10, the uncomfortable level was at a 6-7. But after really putting some time into wearing them (this took about 2 weeks), the boots became very comfortable. On another hike I wore them on, my feet were doing quite well on rigorous terrain. Not to mention that these shoes are super fashionable compared to your average brown hiking boots. The nike swoosh really adds a nice touch.

I'm very satisfied with my purchase of the Nike Zoom Ashiko. I have to say that it was a risk/leap of faith for Nike to go with them for my hiking equipment, but I'm glad that it all worked out! Highly recommend.

Nice! I didn't know that they specifically had hiking boots, but I'm not surprised that they have them and that they're awesome! Their shoes have gotten me through all sorts of sports and sporting events. What I was surprised to find out, though, was that they owned Cole Haan and have a line of dress shoes! Needless to say, my Cole Haans are one of the most comfortable pairs of dress shoes I have :)
