My first trail boot that I think was actually more of a fashion statement. They really sucked. I'm sure Nike makes some really nice hikers under their ACG brand now, but in 1999, this particular model wasn't one of those. I used them exactly one hiking trip, which led to me cutting a giant hole out of the ankle are. After an afternoon of hiking on an uneven graded trail that was on the side of a mountain, a plastic support was jamming its way into my ankle, turning it into a joint that more resembled copped ham than a body part. I don't know the actual shoe name and my photo (above) is poor so I can't tell you what to stay away from, but I would imagine that Nike doesn't make this same boot anymore.
Canvas construction made it easier to cut the hole out of the ankle.
You name it...
