Nike ACC – Explained by the Experts

Vapor ACC

Here is a pretty cool video that details what exactly Nike’s ACC technology is all about. It is shot on location at the Nike Academy and coincided with a wet and rainy training day.

We actually highlighted ACC technology and its characteristics a few weeks back, which proved extremely beneficial for a lot of you in accordance to the feedback we received. But I think the below video like this helps further educate on what Nike are looking to achieve.

What is ACC?

“All Conditions Control” is a new coating added by Nike to the upper of its boots. Its purpose is to add a more uniform level of control in all weather conditions. Think of it as Rain-X, the liquid you apply to the windows of a car. A very thin layer covers the surface and acts as a light buffer in dry conditions without being slick in wet conditions.

Anyone had an opportunity to wear any of the boots that currently feature ACC? If so, have you noticed a difference in wet conditions compared to other boots? We want to know how it performs for everyday players, so leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

For those interested in a pair featuring ACC, in runs across the current 4 boot line-up in Nike’s ranks – Vapor VIII, Tiempo Legend IV, CTR360 Maestri III and T90 Laser IV. All 4 boots are available to buy.

  1. I have recently purchased tiempo legend iv acc anf fortunately had a chance to test it on rainy day. And I must say-it does work. I've had also used CTR 360 III in the same conditions, and the job they do is outstanding. the upper is really a help out there, compared to other brands and boots.

  2. I just wish they made the Tiempo Legend IV in a black colour-way with the ACC technology. Leave the funky gay colours for the other silos, Tiempo's should come in classic colours only.

  3. How do I know if my soccer cleat is ACC

  4. "We even think that it is almost certain that Iniesta's performances wearing the Nike Magista Opus Cleats are far better than with the Nike Magista Obra". How on earth did u come to that conclusion?
