Nike ACG Aqua Sock | I’ve Owned These For Twenty Seven Years!


EST. 1989

Designed by Geoff Hollister, the Aqua Sock was about as simple as a shoe could get – a slip-on sock with a thin rubber outsole. That was it.  They were meant for water sports (no, not that kind, perv) but also were an early vanguard of the minimalist movement.

My goodness… almost 30 years.  This summer marks the twenty seventh year with these exact shoes!  I’ve worn them on my 16km hike at Silent Lake with no issues.  I’ve worn them when I decided to ride my mountain bike from Peterborough to Ajax.   They came with me to Nova Scotia and had a dip in the Atlantic Ocean this past summer shown above.

I’ve even played basketball in them.

They were bought to be slippers around the house.  They are ugly and I love them.



My daughter laughs at me and makes fun of them.  I think she is jealous.

They are the perfect camping shoe.  I promise they will make it to 30 years!
