Nike is planning a retro of the ACG Air Exploraid model for 2024, according to an internal Nike document viewed by Complex. The shoe will return for the Spring ‘24 season starting in February, per the document.

Nike did not respond to a request for comment on the upcoming retro.

The original ACG Air Exploraid was released in 1999. The design features a neoprene inner bootie, visible Nike Air in the heel, and a mesh material wrapped around the midsole at the forefoot.

The photo shown here is of an original pair—no images of the 2024 Exploraid retro have leaked yet.

The retro Nike ACG Air Exploraid run will begin in February in the original ash green/varsity red/black/neutral grey colorway (style code FJ1920-001) and continue in March with an orewood brown/sail/phantom pair (style code FJ1920-100). The sneakers will retail for $140.

The ACG Air Exploraid will be available in extended men’s sizing from 3.5 to 15. The first wave of the shoes will be available only through Nike’s SNKRS app and its “neighborhood” retail partners.
