Nike ACG has another classic footwear retro lined up for 2022, this time reaching to 1994 for the Air Mada Low. The retro hiking model has already surfaced in two colorways, now the ‘Vachetta Tan’ look joins the party, coming soon.

Nike’s All Conditions Gear line has been producing some of our favorite footwear from the Swoosh since the late ’80s. Along the way, the ACG franchise has accumulated a number of classic designs that are still referenced by the all aspects of Nike to this day, and which frequently reappear on shelves in retro releases. Last month, we got word that the mid-’90s Air Mada hiking shoe would be making a comeback in 2022, teased with the emergence of classic all-black and teal colorways. Now, a third pair has joined the mix, reviving the Air Mada’s ‘Vachetta Tan’ look, and making its debut later this week. Beginning with a dark purple base for the upper, the namesake vachetta tone makes up the Mada’s overlays, while soft hints of green along the pull tabs and tongues complete the retro styling.


The latest ACG retro from Nike, 1994’s Air Mada Low, has not been announced for release, though a release date of March 9th, 2022 has been floated online for an overseas debut. The ‘Vachetta Tan’ look is the third classic color scheme to surface, likely joining the Teal & Black looks for the retro debut, all of which will be available from both Nike and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.

UPDATE 5/8/22: Nike has finally set their release for the retro ACG Air Mada, now scheduled for May 13th, 2022. Launching in the Vachetta Tan colorway as well as Black & Ash Green, all three colors will be available directly from the SNKRS app as well as select retailers for $130.
