Nike Air Lava Dome 2.4 QS (Black/Yellow & Grey/Navy)

A much anticipated re-release among fans of the Lava Dome, this release sees Nike reaching in to the back catalogue and reissuing this classic ACG footwear staple. Nike’s ACG line got some serious advertising treatment back in the early ’90s, with Wieden+Kennedy communicating a certain spiritual connection with mother nature that the ACG line prepared the consumer to take on.

The Lava Dome captures that essence with the design concept focusing on being a hybrid shoe that could be utilised for demanding activities such as rock climbing and outdoor adventure. This updated classic makes use of ballistic nylon and suede on the upper for a tough combination that will take a beating and Zoom Air heel cushioning provides much needed comfort and support. The toned down colour palettes are the kind of familiar tones that can be found Nike’s ACG output, while also appealing to consumers of the a more subtle nature.

Available in limited numbers from End Clothing now.
