Taking Nike's Pinnacle Footwear Off-Road


We've tapped the unique lens and experience of Left Foot Right Foot (LFRF) to chronicle Nike's Pinnacle Utility pack that has just landed on Hype DC shelves. Taking inspiration from past trail and infamous Terra designate designs, combined with the rich vein of bold aesthetics made famous by the All Conditions (ACG) assortment, Nike's Pinnacle Utility pack exudes reflexive looks on updated, rugged outdoor footwear designs. To put these utilitarian silhouettes to the test, in form and function, LFRF scaled the Cathedral Range in Healsville VIC, following their penchant for adventure and reported back.

Merging the historic Pegasus lineage with ACG attributes is nothing new - it first happened back in the late 80s with off-road tooling and a robust upper and shortly followed in 1991 with the namesake Air Pegasus A/T. Remastered with modern ingredients, the Pegasus A/T or All -Terrain returns from its historic interlude with aplomb. Taking the original design as point 0, the newest Pegasus A/T carves out a modern shape, with a focus on durable, seamless fabrication, ache-free fastening and plush internal fit and comfort. Featuring a waterproof textile upper with reflective toe and Swoosh detailing, a moulded TPU heel wrap ensures stability while a fast-lacing system with cinch ensures a custom fit. Fused to an encapsulated AIR midsole with a blade pattern outsole, the Air Pegasus A/T is complete with a padded poly-suede collar in a retro ACG inspired print to complement the throwback colourways

When designer Perter Fogg took the reign of ACG and Trail running design at the Swoosh in the early 90s, his distinct design cues and rebellious spins on the largely conservative and durable line, would still be evident almost 20 years later. The hero of his design output, the Terra Humara would become a cult classic, even gracing high-fashion look-books and receiving a HTM edition, thanks to it's newfangled and radical nature. Now remixed for a new school and under a new name, the Air Zoom Grade takes the automotive disc inspired Humara overlays and largely over-sewn upper and reduces it to a simple bootie structure. Providing a sock-like fit, a low-rise TPU wrap ensures stability while a fast-lacing system with cinch ensures a custom fit. Fused to a solid rubber outsole with encased ZOOM Air, and a siped rubber tread, the Air Zoom Grade is complete with reflective hits on the forefoot Swoosh, throat and utility eyelets while retro ACG prints inspire the printed heel loop.
