Nike ACG's Laceless New Shoe Was Inspired by a Paper Bag

The latest futuristic runner born of the NikeLab ACG imprint is the ACG.07.KMTR seen here, a shoe that eschews laces for a magnetic buckle and innovative fastening system. While the model may look cutting-edge, it was inspired by a pretty pedestrian item. According to Nike, the starting point for this silhouette was designers putting a bag around a foot and forming it to the shape of a shoe. Their idea was to create a one-piece sneaker that offered a wide point of entry and a snug fit. The NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR will release on May 18th alongside a new range of ACG apparel.
