One of the most beloved silhouettes from Nike's outdoor-focused silhouettes is the Lava Dome, a shoe that launched in the early '80s to pave the way for the fabled Nike ACG line. Having been MIA for an extended period of time, the Lava Dome is back in stores, though the build isn't exactly true to the original. While the classic mesh and suede upper is mostly unchanged -- done up in a throwback-like tan and orange color palette -- the tooling is modified, with the addition of a heel clip and less substantial reinforcement at the toe. The Nike Lava Dome Ultra is available now at select Nike retailers, including Rock City Kicks.
