Acronym is nothing if not devoted to the proposition of improved functionality. Since its inception, the brand, led by co-founder Errolson Hugh, has pushed aesthetic boundaries while remaining acutely aware of wearers’ needs. The result: A track record of game-changing garments that completely reinvent the potential of clothing for urban environments.

Acronym’s collaborations with Nike are no different. Each assesses a discrete problem and finds plausible solution.

Acronym’s NIKELAB AF1 Downtown x Acronym — which follows 2015’s NikeLab Lunar Force 1 x Acronym — mixes utilitarian features and innovative textiles. Case in point: The extra-high soft shell collar incorporates a quick-release German mil-spec fastener for tactical functionality. This works in concert with an extended brass zipper and pleated paneling to give the shoe a futuristic form.
